Ahead of their fourth wedding anniversary, Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber are looking back at the hurdles they have overcome when it comes to marriage.
Justin and Hailey married twice between 2018 and 2019 — first, in a private ceremony that took place somewhat spontaneously at a New York City courthouse, and then in a more traditional one attended by family and friends.
Justin Bieber Admits He Had An Emotional Breakdown After Marrying Hailey Bieber
The couple has been open about the obstacles they’ve dealt with and worked through since becoming partners and Justin spoke on the subject during a recent Apple Music interview.
“It’s a journey,” he explained.
Justin went on to recall the “emotional breakdown” he had after marrying Hailey and discovering the partnership wouldn’t solve his personal issues and he needed to put the work in himself.
“I remember when I first got married, I hit a little bit of an emotional breakdown because I thought marriage was going to fix all my problems and it didn’t,” he said.
“It just kind of was a reflection of like, ‘Man, you’re a bit of a hypocrite, man,'” Justin continued.
“You want your wife to do something that you’re not doing and it’s like, it’s hard sometimes to look in the mirror and really have to realize, ‘Man, maybe you’re not the person that you necessarily thought that you were.’ And that’s just a result of trauma and life circumstances.”
Justin has not been shy about struggling with mental health in the past and seeking out supportive resources while also clinging to faith and religion.
“For me, obviously, I’ve been so just very public about my faith journey and how my relationship with Jesus has helped me to just not be so hard on myself,” he said in the interview.
“Just the idea that I’m forgiven and that he’s walking me through this journey and day by day, I get to just get better and better and not be too hard on myself.”
