Rap veteran Ice-T‘s wife, Coco, has dished out some marriage advice to reality star Kim Kardashian in light of her engagement to NBA player Kris Humphries.
Coco feels it is most important for Kardashian and Humphries to be confident in bed.
“You gotta live together and you have to sleep together [before the wedding],” Coco tells me, “If you don’t sleep together, what if you’re not compatible in bed or you don’t like what they do?” But beyond seeing what your future hubby is like between the sheets, Coco says you have to be 100 percent supportive of your spouse. “You have to be each other’s biggest fans,” she tells me. “We work as a team.” (E!

A few weeks ago, Ice-T talked to SOHH and gave some marriage advice.
“You gotta love the person you’re with,” Ice-T laughingly told SOHH. “It shouldn’t be a marriage of convenience or think it’s something that’ll look good for the press. You gotta find somebody that you really dig. You have to be a fan of your mate. Back in the days, people got married and it was some fairytale thing. Now, it’s more of a business partnership. You have to become real teammates. I tell Coco all the time, it’s hard enough for one person to make it in the world, so if you’re two, it should be easier. Hopefully, not harder.” (SOHH)
Coco also said a general interest in your significant other’s career is vital to making a marriage work.
“You gotta like what they do, too,” Coco added. “As far as I go, I didn’t really know a lot about rap but I liked Ice as a person. So whatever he was in to, I was in to and I had to get in to because I started having to research it a little bit. Just like me. He met me modeling so he kind of had to become a fan of me modeling. He probably never thought about that before.” (SOHH)
Kardashian’s engagement became public knowledge last May.
It was a dream come true for Kim Kardashian when she walked into her Beverly Hills home May 18. Her boyfriend of six months, New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries, was waiting in her bedroom on bended knee with four words written in red rose petals: “WILL YOU MARRY ME?” “I didn’t expect this at all,” Kardashian, 30, tells PEOPLE in an exclusive interview (out Friday) of the romantic, surprise proposal. “I was in such shock. I never thought it would happen at home, and I never thought now.” (PEOPLE)
