Hugh Jackman's golden tip for marriage is both unexpected and beautiful.

Hugh Jackman may have just found the secret to a long-lasting marriage. Surprisingly, it’s got nothing to do with roses and romance.

Speaking to PEOPLE Magazine at the National Night of Laughter and Song event in Washington DC on Monday night, the beloved Wolverine and Boy from Oz performer attributed his happy marriage with Deborra-Lee Furness to a slightly unorthodox activity.

"Meditation!" he said. Not chocolates, spooning, or communication, but becoming one with your most Zen self.

Deborra-Lee agreed, adding: "We meditate together... sometimes we have friends over to do it, too."

Considering the couple have been married for 21 years after meeting in the set of Corelli in 1995, they must be onto something. (Check out the video up top for all their best moments!)
