Pink is opening up about her relationship with the former motocross racer, Carey Hart, and sharing on how marriage counseling has helped them.
On Monday, the “Walk Me Home” singer shared on Instagram a picture of herself laughing as she embraced her husband, Hart. “My friend @jbpitts2 took this photo of us. 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 wrote as her caption.
“Marriage is awful, wonderful, comfort and rage,” she continued. “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.”
The pop star went on to explain how people’s negative comments about their relationship don’t really matter to them. “People laugh at us because we’re either fighting or laughing. They roll their eyes when we talk about therapy,” she wrote.
“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 added.
The songstress ended the post with a sweet message directed to her husband: “I love you babe. I’m grateful we made it to this photo @hartluck.”
Last year, Pink revealed that she and Hart have been in therapy for nearly their entire relationship. “Carey and I have been in couples counseling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together,” she said in an interview with Carson Daly at the time.
“It’s the only reason we’re still together. He speaks Polish, I speak Italian, and she speaks both. We don’t speak the same language,” the mother of two explained.
“We come from broken families, and we had no model for: How are we supposed to keep this family together and live this crazy life? And there’s no book that says, ‘Here’s how to do this.’ So we go to counseling, and it works.”
