The actress credits "patience and understanding" for her 10-year marriage to Chris. The pair marked a decade of wedded bliss back in December, and Elsa has explained the reasons why their relationship is still going strong.

"You need to put in a lot of work into marriage; I don't think every couple is perfect. It requires patience, understanding, a lot of conversation, getting to know the other person, knowing yourself and what you do wrong. It's about not letting one's pride get in the way," Elsa told The Sydney Morning Herald.

Elsa also suggested that spending time together without their children – daughter India Rose and twin sons, Tristan and Sasha; has been important in keeping the romance alive.

“We try to do things together without the kids. We make time for ourselves as a couple,” she added.
