“There’s no book that says, ‘Here’s how to do this.’”

Proving once again why we love to love her, Pink opened up about the often complex art of being married/in a long term relationship with your co-parent.

“Carey and I have been in couples counselling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together,” she says.

“It’s the only reason we’re still together. He speaks Polish, I speak Italian, and she speaks both. We don’t speak the same language,” Pink said. “We come from broken families, and we had no model for: How are we supposed to keep this family together and live this crazy life? And there’s no book that says, ‘Here’s how to do this.’ So we go to counselling, and it works.”

Pink and Carey separated for a year 

Pink and Carey celebrated 13 years of marriage earlier this year, but their relationship has definitely had its ups and downs. The pair separated in 2008 but formally reconciled a year later.

They also share two children, Willow Sage, seven, and son Jameson Moon, two.

In a previous interview, prior to the release of her Beautiful Trauma album, Pink also got real on sex in a long term relationship.

“There are days I look at Carey and he is the most logical, constant, thoughtful … he’s like a rock… And then I look at him and go, ‘I’ve never liked you, there’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common’ … Then you’ll go through times when you haven’t had sex in a year and you think, ‘Do I want him? Does he want me?’ Monogamy is work! But you do the work and it’s good again.”

“I keep the right people around me and go to therapy”

Sounds pretty on the money, right?

Pink also opened up about her personal struggles with anxiety and depression – acknowledging how common the experience is these days, and what she does to keep herself in check.

“What I do is I keep the right people around me, and I go to therapy.”

It’s such good advice, we’re left wondering if Pink has chosen the wrong profession!
