In what seems to be breakup season, actor Brian Austin Green opens up about how hard he and wife, Megan Fox, work to keep their marriage fruitful and happily functioning.
While all relationships are tough and go through ebbs and flows, celebrity relationships can be especially difficult to navigate for a whole host of reasons. So why do some couples make it and others have a hard time really overcoming their obstacles? Green thinks it’s all about perspective and taking it one day at a time.
Green and Fox have been together for more than a decade and married for 7 years. On a podcast he hosts, he opened up about the struggles of marriage and making it work. He explains, “marriage is hard. It’s work I think for anyone. I think when you get to the point like we have where you have kids and you’ve been married for a while and we’ve been together for a long time… you just take it day by day.”
Their relationship hasn’t always been easy or a bed of roses by any means. Fox even filed for divorce in 2015 but the two never went through with it and quickly reconciled. They have three sons together and Green has another son from a previous relationship.
Green is also very vocal about not believing that divorce is some type of failure. He believes the fact that relationships can work and do work at all is positive. However, those who think that the way something ends negates the good times and the work it took to keep it together, are focusing on the wrong things.
Green goes on to gush about his kids and his relationship with Fox but is very clear to state that the key to keeping it together is to not think about too much at once. Taking it one day at a time is what has helped their relationship stay strong and has even helped them combat the trying and hard times.
Green also admits that this relationship is the longest he’s ever had and that one of the reasons he works so hard at it is because he “hates” being single.
