Newlyweds (if people are still “newlywed” after one year of marriage) Christina Aguilera and her husband, Jordan Bratman, have apparently found the secret to a happy marriage: Naked Sunday.Â In an interview with Ellen Degeneres, Christina told all about it:

Christina Aguilera and her music exec husband Jordan Bratman have a sexy secret for keeping their marriage exciting â€“ getting naked on Sundays.
“We claim ourselves to be coziest couple ever,” the 26-year-old Grammy nominee (for her Back to Basics album) tells Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show Wednesday. “We have something called naked Sundays.”
“Excuse me?” DeGeneres asks. “Did you say naked Sundays?”
“You have to keep marriage alive, spice it up,” says Aguilera, admitting that some added heat is required even though the two have only been married for “a big whole year.”
“[In November] we just celebrated our first anniversary, and on Sundays we just do everything in the house, and we’re just cozy and laid back,” she says. “We don’t need to go anywhere, we’re just with each other.” We do everything naked. We cook naked.”
DeGeneres suggests there is one thing they should avoid during their nude time: “Nothing with grease â€“ that could splatter.”
But Aguilera isn’t deterred, saying: “Well, unless you want the grease.”
You know, I really appreciate it when enlightened Hollywood folks who know soÂ much aboutÂ real life can help us regular people out.Â I remember those young newlywed days, and they WERE quite thrilling.Â They don’t last, and that’s a GOOD thing because they can be replaced with days that are even better.Â Different but better.
But, oh Christina honey, I could tell you a thing or two about marriage.Â It takes a lotÂ more than Naked Sundays to keep a marriage alive, to spice up a relationship and to make people happy.
But I have a feeling you’ll learnÂ for yourself about what makes a real marriage – someday.Â
