Todd and Julie are one fun celebrity couple. Most times, their interview sessions about their marriage leave the public in stitches.
Last month, the couple were on Us Weekly, where they played the Not-So-Newly-Married game. It was a fantastic time, as Julie and Todd recalled many unforgettable memories, including who said "I love you" first.
It is important to note that the duo has been married for 25 years, so it might be challenging to remember. However, Todd disagreed with Julie, insisting that she said the three words first.

According to the real estate mogul, his wife said the words in his mother's kitchen. Todd further noted that he made Julie say "I love you" first because he did not want to look cheap. Surprisingly, Julie agreed with all of her husband's claims. She quipped:
"Well my memory's not as good as his. I'm not gonna question it."
INSIDE THE COUPLE'S MARRIAGE AND VOW RENEWAL
Todd and Julie tied the knot in May 1996, one month before welcoming their oldest son, Chase. To date, not much is known about the couple's wedding, but in 2016, 20 years after they married, the pair renewed their vows in Hawaii.
The occasion took place in front of all the couple's children, and it was shared on the Facebook page of "Chrisley Knows Best."

They reminded themselves of their love for each other, and overall, it was a beautiful sight. A few years later, Julie confessed that the vow renewal was one of her biggest regrets.
She explained a few hours before the occasion, they had ridden ATVs down a mountain for hours, and their faces were covered in dust.
In addition, she and Todd were clad in 10-dollar Hawaiian T-shirts. So when she walked into the venue and saw beautiful flowers, it was a huge surprise.
Julie had expected a more romantic setting on the beach with the entire family dressed fabulously. In response to his wife's words, Todd said:
"I thought I did something nice."
Nevertheless, Julie found the moment touching and burst into tears. Sadly, due to the dust on her face, Todd revealed that it looked like bad mascara on her.
The couple celebrated more after the vow renewal by doing some "freaky stuff." Todd said they watched "Power" in bed, and he also watched "Ghost Lay It Down." Then, they ate dinner, spent time with their kids, and exchanged gifts.
THE SECRET TO A HAPPY MARRIAGE
Most long-time couples have secrets behind their long-lasting relationships, and Todd and Julie are not exceptions. During an interview with Entertainment Online, the real estate mogul mentioned that the secret to any relationship is commitment.
According to Todd, both parties have to be ready to "roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty." He also talked about loyalty, faithfulness, honesty, open communication, and lots of sex.
Undoubtedly, Todd and Julie have worked hard to build love and keep their marriage working. The love they share can be seen during interviews and on social media, where they serenade each other with kind words.
For example, When Todd celebrated his birthday last year, Julie took to her Instagram page to praise her husband. Alongside a photo of the couple posing together, she added the caption:
"Happy birthday @toddchrisley I am so blessed to be able to celebrate you today! You are the hardest working person I know[...]. Thank you for all you do for us. Love you. Always and forever."
Todd returned the favor when Julie celebrated her 49th birthday in January. He admitted to being blessed for having her in his life. He further wrote:
"Thank you God, we are not deserving of this wonderful woman you have given us but she makes us better each day and hopefully one day we will come close to her greatness. To the moon and back babe[...]."
