Darren Criss Says These Two Words Are Key to Happy Marriage

Darren Criss believes in the saying “happy wife, happy life.” The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story actor told Us Weekly that he believes in two simple words when it comes to having a successful marriage: “Yes, dear.”

His wisdom comes as he nears tying the knot himself. The Glee alum, 30, proposed to girlfriend Mia Swier in January after more than seven years of dating. 


“I think for any young man preparing for marriage, it’s best to get used to saying ‘whatever you want want dear,’” Darren told Us in a recent interview. “So I’m perfecting my ‘Yes, dear’s,’ and ‘whatever you want!’ Whatever makes her happy makes me happy.”

The hunk announced his engagement to Mia via Instagram last month. 

“Mia and I have had seven and a  half years of fun, wacky, wonderful, CRAZY adventures together,” he wrote at the time. “And I’m happy to announce that we’re kicking those adventures up a notch. We’re goin for it. To boldly go where neither of us have gone before. Engage.”
