Ina and Jeffrey Garten have a union so perfect even the United States Constitution is jealous. But Ina, who recently went on Katie Couric's podcast to tout her latest cookbook, newest Food Network show, and blissful happiness, insists they're just a normal couple.

They eat, they drink, and sometimes, they even disagree! But thanks to Jeffrey, the situation never escalates. According to Ina, Jeffrey knows how to diffuse a spat before it becomes a full-fledged fight. Here, Ina explains:

Unspoken, but clearly implied: "...because he knows what's good for him and on which side his homemade, oven-fresh bread is buttered...and spread with vine-ripened tomatoes, a sliver of beautiful green basil, and a pinch of flaky sea salt. There! How easy is that?"
