Lambert recently told E Online! her three rules for keeping a relationship strong.

2. Make Time for Each Other - With Lambert's Locked and Reloaded Tour and Shelton's involvement in 'The Voice,' the two superstars have incredibly busy schedules, but she insists that time together is incredibly important. "Make time for him at least once a week," she reveals.

3.

"I'm a passionate dog lover," she says. What better way to add some spice to your relationship than by inviting a furry friend into your home?
