“It Isn’t Perfect, but I’m Grateful It’s Ours” How Pink and Carey Hart’s Relationship Proves to Us That True Love Is Worth Fighting For
One of the world’s best-selling music artists, Pink, is seen as a role model by her fans not only because of her music but also because of her life off-camera. Her candidness about her personal life, struggles, and wins makes us all realize that she’s a down-to-earth human, just like us. And when it comes to her marriage, things are no different. She and Carey Hart have a beautiful family and both admit that being with someone is not always an easy ride — but it’s totally worth it.
We at Bright Side are inspired by Pink and Carey Hart’s love story. It’s not a perfect fairytale but it’s real and genuine, and we can’t wait to share it with you today.
They clicked right away but had a bumpy beginning.
Both having rebel hearts, Pink and Carey met each other in 2001 and became inseparable ever since — he’s even performed in one of Pink’s music videos. But in 2003, they decided to go their separate ways. Their breakup lasted 2 years, with them reconciling and tying the knot in 2006, but due to their busy schedules, they broke up again in 2008.
They had already filed for divorce when Pink decided to fight for their marriage. After preparing a photo album containing all their relationship memories, she and Carey agreed to reconcile and to start writing their future together.
Managing their work-life balance was essential.
Pink revealed that their work time became so critical that Carey would see her for 5 days and be gone for six weeks. If they wanted their marriage to work, their work-life balance was the first problem that needed fixing. And that’s what they did.
Now whenever Pink has to go on a tour, her whole family goes with her. Recently, she took a music break to focus on her family and to support her husband on his projects, saying, “Carey is super supportive, he follows me around the world, and now it’s his turn.”
But there was more to work on, so they decided to go to couples therapy.
The couple agreed that they still had major communication problems, as Pink once joked, “He speaks Polish, I speak Italian,” but decided that this wasn’t going to get in the way of their happiness. They started to go to couples counseling early on in their relationship and proudly admit that therapy helped them keep their family together.
They also regularly confess that being married isn’t a fairy tale as we sometimes tend to think. There are times when everything is perfect and other times when you start questioning everything around you. Pink has no shame in admitting, “Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it’s good again.”
And each anniversary feels like their first.
With a good sense of humor and a daily dose of reality, Pink and Carey are also known for celebrating each new year together as a big milestone. They both use their social media accounts to praise and declare their love for each other. As they announced their fifteenth anniversary, Pink joked, “Here’s to at least the next 15 months,” while Carey, on their thirteenth wedding anniversary, quipped, “I’m very grateful for you, baby. We have created an amazing life and family together. I love you.”
All in all, their hard work paid off and they now have a beautiful family.
As Pink once mentioned, she and Carey come from broken families and work very hard to give the best childhood to their 2 kids, Willow and Jameson. “We love being a family. And we both come from families that gave up. That was their journey, but for us, we don’t want to do that,” the singer declared.
