After nearly 40 years together, Dr. Phil McGraw and his wife think they know the key to a successful marriage.
"In just eight days, we celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary," Robin McGraw, Dr. Phil's second wife, told PEOPLE at BELLA NEW YORK's Hamptons White Party, during the celebration of her cover story at the Montauk Yacht club. "So he's doing something right."
The secret to their marital success is no secret, according to McGraw, 62.
"A lot of people say it is 50/50, but we both think it's 100/100," she said. "So, we both focus on the marriage – and we did our homework before we got married. We sat down and with both said what we needed from our marriage. I learned that would upset him, and I purposely didn't do that. We're not talking the little thing We learned each other's needs and we focus on that still to this day."

When Dr. Phil McGraw was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes more than 25 years ago, he made it his mission to not let the disease define him.
"This is one of those diagnoses that comes with shame," he tells PEOPLE. "You've got to get past feeling guilty."
After getting the initial diagnosis, he made a commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary to help him stay on a healthier path.
"I started really digging in and doing some research and figuring out what I needed to do to manage it," he says. "You have to shake it up and replace bad habits with new habits. I had to get a physician and a nutritionist, but most importantly, I needed my wife Robin and my family to help me succeed and back me up."
