It’s hard to have a successful marriage. It takes work, patience, dedication, and most importantly love. Just ask singer Pink and her husband, retired motocross racer Carey Hart.
Pink and Hart have been together for 17 years and married for 14 of those years. And she’ll be the first to tell you, it’s taken a lot of hard work and therapy to get to where they are today.
Pink Gets Beautifully Candid About Her Marriage on Instagram
In fact, the performer recently opened up about their marriage on Facebook while sharing an adorable photo of her and Hart embracing in a hug. As Pink shared, it was a photo taken by one of her friends.
“He’s still my favorite sweet little dirtball. He and I have been at this a long time, and it is our relentless and stubborn idealism that keeps us together,” Pink says with all the candor in the world. “Marriage is awful, wonderful, comfort, and rage. It is boring, terrifying, and a total nail biter. It is loving another fallible creature while trying to love yourself. It is a lifetime of coming back to the table.”
As the 41-year-old mother of two continued, “People laugh at us because we’re either fighting or laughing. They roll their eyes when we talk about therapy. But I’ll tell you what. It’s worth it. All of it. Even when it isn’t.”
“Therapy isn’t for weak people or hippies or liberals. It’s for broken people that want to be whole. It’s for runaways that want a family. It’s a lesson on how to sit down and listen. How to love yourself so that the other person can, too.”
Pink concluded the beautifully honest caption by saying, “I love you, babe. I’m grateful we made it to this photo.” And her fans are grateful too. Hundreds of commenters praised Pink for speaking the truth so perfectly.
“A whole lotta truths here,” one commenter wrote. “Perfectly said. Congratulations dirtballs,” another added.
As Pink has said in the past, she and Carey have been in couples counseling for the entire 17 years they’ve been together. “It’s the only reason we’re still together. He speaks Polish, I speak Italian, and she speaks both,” she once explained it to Carson Daly.
Therapy has helped them figure out how to make their relationship work because having both come from broken homes, they were never shown an example of how to make it work.
