Marriage isn’t always easy, but according to Pink, who has been married to Carey Hart since 2006 and entered parenthood with him in 2011, it’s totally worth it.

“My friend @jbpitts2 took this photo of us,” she captioned a recent Instagram photo showing the couple embracing.

Here is the rest of Pink’s beautiful description of marriage:

“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.

Marriage is awful, wonderful, comfort and rage.

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. People laugh at us because we’re either fighting or laughing. They roll their eyes when we talk about therapy.

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. I love you babe. I’m grateful we made it to this photo @hartluck

During the pandemic, we have all been so stressed and it’s natural that this has been hard on our partnerships. We’re all fighting with our partners right now.

But Pink’s post is a reminder that some relationships are worth fighting for. They can be comforting and complex all at the same time and that’s what’s so wonderful about them.
