He claims the key to staying together is keeping a low-profile: "We just genuinely love each other. We stay out of the spotlight as much as we can.
"So many times people are too in the spotlight, which puts too much pressure on things."
Meanwhile, The couple insist they try not to take constant rumours and media reports surrounding marriage plans too seriously.
Fergie adds, "We get a kick out of it. Every other week, we hear we're engaged."
