10 Love Lessons from the House of Mouse

MICKEY AND MINNIE IN LOVETogether for the past 85 years, Mickey and Minnie Mouse go together like black and white. Like the original and the sequel. Like polka dots and yellow shoes.

Let’s just say they’re made for each other.

The mouse-eared match makes every moment magic, whether they’re playing boyfriend and girlfriend on screen or celebrating one of the longest marriages in history in their private lives – kept under wraps for the obvious publicity purposes.

Their love is old school and evergreen, making them the ultimate couple.

You could never picture them breaking up, and they probably couldn’t either.

So what are the secrets to their relationship’s success?

And just what makes them so solid?

So stable?

So darn cute?

I took to the internets to ask a group of Disney bloggers for their take on the timeless twosome, leading to 10 very sweet reasons Mickey and Minnie rock love.

Take note, coupledom.
