Earlier this year, Pink opened up about going to couples counseling with her husband Carey Hart—not because anything in particular was wrong, but so they could learn how to create a life with one another.
“We come from broken families and we had no model of, ‘How are we supposed to keep this family together?’ And live this crazy life? There’s no model, there’s no book that says, ‘Here’s how to do this!’” she said on the Today show on April 26 . “So, we go to counseling, and it works.”
The three-time Grammy winner married the motocross rider in 2006 after four years of dating. They’ve since welcomed daughter Willow and son Jameson, and Pink credited 17 years of therapy with helping get their relationship where it is today.
“Carey and I have been in couples counseling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together,” the pop star continued. “It’s the only reason we’re still together.”
The “Just Give Me a Reason” singer and her husband aren’t the only married couple to turn to counseling, especially not in Hollywood. Along with Pink and Hart, these eight other pairs have spoken about the positive effect couples therapy has had on their relationships.
