Thirteen years of marriage is quite an accomplishment. If you add four more years of dating to that, you get a whopping 17 years of commitment between two people.
Celebrity couple Carey Hart and Pink celebrated just that. Yesterday marked their 13th wedding anniversary. The pair dated for 4 years then made it official after Pink broke tradition and popped the question.
Hart was still a motocross racer when they got engaged. Pink surprised him with a poster that read “Will You Marry Me?” as he raced around the track.
They were married in Costa Rica in 2006.
In a 2017 interview with The Guardian, Pink spoke about her husband:
“There are moments where I look at [Hart] and he is the most thoughtful, logical, constant … he’s like a rock. He’s a good man. He’s a good dad. He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some. “
The couple has had two children together: Willow, age 7, and Jameson, age 2.
To celebrate their anniversary yesterday, Hart posted on Instagram.
The heartfelt caption reads:
“Can’t believe it’s our 13th wedding anniversary. Who would have thought two misfits like us could pull it off!!! I’m very grateful for you, baby. We have created an amazing life and family together. I love you. #17YearsStrong”
The pair has not always experience smooth sailing. Let’s face it — marriage is hard, especially when it’s in the spotlight.
Two years after their marriage they split up, and after attending marriage counseling they reconciled in 2010.
Despite their struggles, these two are pulling it off and the internet couldn’t be happier for them.
Beautiful and real couple!!! LOVE THEM!!!!
