Pink and Carey Hart separated in 2008 and even filed for divorce — but thanks to marriage counseling and couples therapy, they never signed the papers and are now happily married with two adorable kids. The singer explained to Redbook that since going to therapy, "We fight nicer. There is no yelling in front of [daughter] Willow, ever. We can argue, just no yelling. We are couples-therapy people. We do it for maintenance, not problems."
The couple even shared their most important lessons learned in couples therapy. The first is that marriage is a 100 percent commitment. "You can't have one foot in and one foot out," Pink explained. "You have to dive in and be willing to be executed at the stake for the love you want."
Pink also says that fighting can be a good thing if it's part of achieving a goal. "I think it's really bad when a couple retreats to their sides of the dinner table and have nothing to say to each other," she said. "So there have been times where I'm like, 'As long as I can get Carey to bite, even if he's angry, [it means he] still cares.' When you become silent and give up, you're doomed. We did that [in 2008]. We became silent, and we broke up … I knew how to walk away when I met Carey. I knew how to tell him to f**k off. But I didn't know how to sit at a table and actually work through something. Now we're really good at that."
