In Their Own Words: The Highs and Lows of Miranda Lambert & Blake Shelton's Marriage

What the former couple had to say about the pressures of celebrity, their lives apart and their love for each other

ON THEIR ROMANTIC IDOLS

"It's not easy when everyone is trying to tear you down, but you make a commitment and you stick to it. In other parts of the entertainment world, it sometimes seems like marriage is so disposable. But country has some enduring marriages – Johnny and June, George and Nancy, Faith and Tim. I'm thankful we have those role models. I feel like our peers are rooting for us. They're holding us up."
– Lambert, April 2014
