Their love is eternal like Rose and Jack…it will go on! … but not without some rough patches! Celine Dion and Rene Angelil, who have been married for 18 years (in Hollyweird that’s like a BILLION), have definitely had their fair share of hard times! Celine reveals:
“Rene and I had our tough times. It wasn’t always easy. We had tension between us. It’s never easy being husband and wife, but add to that we are in business together, dealing with all the added pressures of shows, concerts, tours, travelling. It was hard – a lot of hard work.”
After trying to ignore their scheduling and communication issues, the singer turned to a girlfriend for advice: “She taught me it never goes away. It sits there and gets worse. She taught me how to say things the right way. It’s lessons that every married couple should know to hold their relationship together.”
The friend stressed to the Grammy winner there’s a “right way” to communicate in a relationship:
“It changed the way we related to each other. We laugh. We joke. We kid each other. We want our marriage to last forever. Talk over everything and you’ll find you are still on the honeymoon … communication – it’s the most important. It’s the secret.”
The mother of three first met her hubby when she was 12 and he was 38! Holy Lolita moment! Glad they’ve moved past the roughness and are still happy after all these years!
