Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher’s marriage has had its fair share of problems since they tied the knot in 2010, but it seems that lately there may be tension that the couple needs to deal with.
After suffering a nasty fall that required her to get 50 stitches, Underwood is still struggling with the after-effects of the accident and would like to attend counseling with her husband, but he isn’t thrilled with the idea.
According to Closer Weekly, Underwood and Fisher have faced challenges since the beginning of their relationship. The fiercely devout Christians met back in 2008 at a meet and greet, but she lived in Nashville, while he lived in Canada and played hockey for the Ottawa Senators.
Underwood said that the long distance made dating difficult, but they ended up chatting for months before they met up again on New Year’s Eve and shared their first kiss when the clock struck midnight.
By the following December, the couple had gotten engaged, and then they married the following summer. But, their supposedly epic love story may not have the happy ending that they planned. And, an insider claims that the couple, who share son Isaiah, 3, continue to discover just how different they are.
As a result, Underwood wants to attend couples counseling, but Fisher isn’t showing any interest.
“He doesn’t necessarily say no, but he just kicks that can down the road,” reveals the source. “He admits he isn’t really comfortable with the idea.”
At the same time that Fisher isn’t comfortable with therapy, Underwood isn’t comfortable with his outgoing personality. Apparently, Fisher doesn’t think anything of inviting a bunch of people over who Underwood barely knows, and this is causing some friction between the couple. But, there are even more differences.
Their opposite diets are also causing problems because Underwood is a vegetarian, but Fisher isn’t. She does want to be the kind of wife that cooks her husband dinner, but she doesn’t want to cook meat, much less eat it, and it’s becoming a problem.
As a result, the two often cook meals separately, so there is no bonding at dinner time. And, if he continues to reject the idea of counseling, especially if they are arguing over silly issues like dinner, Underwood and Fisher could be nearing the end of their marriage.
An insider claims that if the couple continues to grow apart, they will have no choice but to divorce. However, this isn’t something either of them wants.
But, Fisher recently set the record straight and said that things are just fine for the couple. When a fan wrote on his Instagram that they are praying for him and his wife, he responded by saying, “We’ve never been better. Thanks.”
Carrie Underwood has not revealed her full face or commented on the rumors surrounding her marriage since her nasty fall.
