What is Tammy Franklin's secret to 21-years of happy marriage?

Tammy loves keeping it spicy for her husband, gospel star Kirk Franklin, and she's intentional about every move she makes.

She does so by being his "girlfriend" as well as his wife and having regular date nights with her husband. From her choice of clothing to her hairstyle, Tammy knows what makes her man smile and she shared some relationship gems on Instagram to help us all enhance the love.

"I love being his wife but I'm also very intentional about staying his girlfriend! I knew he wouldn't mind me wearing the flat sandals that I thought about wearing, but I chose to wear the wedges that I know he loves. I pay attention to what makes him smile! I share this not because I've always done it perfect but I grew to learn the balance. Although sometimes he gets my bonnet lol, he should also get his Boo!" she shared.

The couple, who've had their ups and downs, aren't afraid to admit that marriage takes work. "... So we've done counseling; it has saved our marriage. We pray together and I'm not only his wife, but I'm his girlfriend," Tammy shared on Get Up! Mornings With Erica Campbell. It's almost time for LL's oldest daughter to tie the knot and she's really feeling the love.
