Justin and Hailey Bieber (nÃ©e Baldwin) have tied the knot twice â€” and they don’t shy away from talking about their marriage publicly.
Since confirming their union, the two have been surprisingly candid about their relationship and what it takes to be a married couple.
Here are some of the things they have said about married life:
Justin has said that their alone time together is “pretty crazy.”
Justin has insinuated that his sex life with his wife is going really well.
During an intimate performance in London earlier this year, one fan asked the singer what he does on a regular day.
According to E! News, he responded, “It just depends on who I’m with. When I’m with my wife, we like to… You guys can guess what we do. It gets pretty crazy… that’s pretty much all we do.”
He added, “We like to watch movies, we like to Netflix and chill, but we definitely do more of the chilling.” The term “Netflix and chill” is popularly a phrase that means hooking up, or having sex.
They have said that marriage can be “very hard.”
Hailey told the publication, “The thing is, marriage is very hard. That is the sentence you should lead with. It’s really effing hard.”
The two waited for marriage to have sex, and Justin called Hailey his “reward” after being celibate for over a year.
In the same 2019 interview with Vogue, Justin said that he had “a legitimate problem with sex,” and was more than a year into a time of self-imposed celibacy when he started rekindling his romance with Hailey.
“I think sex can cause a lot of pain. Sometimes people have sex because they don’t feel good enough. Because they lack self-worth. Women do that, and guys do that,” he said. “I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul.”
He added, “And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behaviour.”
Justin said he was initially unsure about marriage because he was worried about staying loyal to Hailey.
He said, “I felt like, in the past, we had talked about, you know, me asking the question, and I felt like she would say, ‘yes.'”
He continued, “Am I able to make this commitment as a man and be able to honour, you know, what I say, you know, because that’s a serious commitment when you say you’re gonna love someone for better or for worse and, like, be faithful. That’s huge. Am I able to do that?”
He said he finally decided he was going to “make the decision and follow through with it” because he’s always wanted to be a husband.
Justin called Hailey the inspiration behind his single “Yummy.”
During the same January interview on “The Ellen Show,” Justin revealed that his wife was the inspiration behind his steamy song “Yummy.”
Some of the lyrics in the song include, “Rollin’ eyes back in my head, make my toes curl, yeah, yeah,” and “I’m elated that you are my lady.” And the chorus goes, “Yeah, you got that yummy-yum/That yummy-yum, that yummy-yummy.”
When asked what the song was about, he was quick to say, “My sex life. Yeah, I mean it is what it is, right? I’m married now … Is it getting hot in here?”
Hailey said that Justin’s health concerns made things tough at the start of their marriage.
“It was hard because everybody from the outside was being super mean and judgmental, saying he looked like he was on drugs, saying how unhealthy he looked, when in truth, he was not healthy and we didn’t know why,” she said.
She said that Justin is healthy now, but they were forced to deal with the “in sickness and in health” part of their wedding vows right away.
“We went straight into figuring out the hard stuff,” she said. “Because you never know what can happen with someone’s health. When you don’t know what’s happening, it’s really scary. And then you have the opinions of everybody from the outside, and it just sucks.”
Their faith is an important part of their marriage.
Hailey and Justin are both dedicated Christians, which plays a big role in their marriage. In the same interview with Elle, Hailey called it “the most important part” of their relationship.
“Being able to share that with each other – to have that bond of faith and spirituality – is so [critical] for us,” she said. “Following Jesus together, being a part of the church community together. It’s everything.”
Justin said he thinks of Hailey as the only certain part of his life.
Although the couple has had some ups and downs, they have made it clear that they both rely on each other.
In that 2019 interview with Vogue, Justin said that he’s the “emotionally unstable” one in the relationship and that he struggles “with finding peace.”
“Hailey’s very logical and structured, which I need,” he said. “I’ve always wanted security – with my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that’s certain. And that is my baby boo.”
They have a rule about not using phones while they are in bed.
In an effort to prioritise their relationship over their hectic schedules, Hailey and Justin have a few house rules.
In the interview with Elle, Hailey said, “We have a rule: No phones in bed unless it’s absolutely necessary.”
Hailey has said that she wouldn’t want to spend her life with anyone else.
Justin and Hailey were long-time friends before they reportedly started dating in 2016. However, they seemingly had a falling out that year and their relationship “fizzled.” They didn’t reconnect until 2018.
In that same interview with Elle, Hailey said that she was impressed with Justin’s growth when they got back together.
“Obviously, it took work and getting past things between the two of us, but it was all very worth it. He’s an incredible, amazing man, and such a good partner to go through life with,” she said. “There is no one else I would have ever wanted to spend my life with except him. So I’m lucky.”
Justin said he feels “honoured” to be Hailey’s husband.
In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 station in February, Justin said, “I’m freaking married now and I got the best wife in the world. She supports me through so much. I’m really honoured to be her husband.”
Hailey said that even though they genuinely love each other, their marriage is not a “magical fantasy.”
Justin and Hailey have often spoken about how marriage is not as perfect as it sometimes seems online.
In that 2019 interview with Vogue, Hailey talked about their attempts to “build a healthy relationship.”
“We’re coming from a really genuine place. But we’re two young people who are learning as we go. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy. It’s always going to be hard,” she said. “It’s a choice. You don’t feel it every single day. You don’t wake up every day saying, ‘I’m absolutely so in love and you are perfect.’ That’s not what being married is.”
She said there’s still “something beautiful” about being married, though, and that she and Justin are committed to supporting one another and growing as a couple.
“At the end of the day, too, he’s my best friend. I never get sick of him,” she added.
They both seem to agree that Justin has “good hands.”
If you follow Justin and Hailey on Instagram, you’ll probably notice a few flirty exchanges.
In December 2019, Justin shared a video of himself playing hockey on his Instagram with the caption, “Like my wife always says…. I got good hands.”
Hailey was quick to back this up, commenting on the picture, “Fact.”
Justin has said he would be “lost” without Hailey.
In one Instagram post from August 2019, that’s hashtagged “#wifeyappreciationday,” Justin wrote, “I fall more in love with you every single day. You are the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. I would be lost without you.”
Justin said he left the couple’s decision about having kids up to Hailey.
During an appearance on “The Ellen Show” earlier this month, Justin played the game “Burning Questions” and was asked how many kids he wants to have with Hailey.
He responded, “I think it’s up to Hailey because it’s her body.”
Hailey said that although marriage will always be tough, things have gotten easier for both of them.
In a September 2019 interview with Vogue Australia, Hailey was asked about a previous comment, in which she said marriage is “really effing hard.”
She explained that she said that when she and Justin were first married, adding that “marriage is always going to be hard” and require work.
“Specifically, I said that when there were a lot of new things. I had never lived with someone before. I never had to cohabit with somebody in that way, so I was learning how to share space with someone for the first time. We were trying to bend in each other’s direction and learn what was comfortable,” she told the publication.
She added, “Now it’s easier because we’ve found a rhythm. We have more fun together, which is what should happen when you spend more time with someone you love.”
Justin and Hailey talked about their favourite parts of marriage on their Facebook Watch show “The Biebers on Watch.”
In May, Justin and Hailey released the first episode of their Facebook Watch series, “The Biebers on Watch.”
On the episode “Lake Day,” both Justin and Hailey talked about the most rewarding parts about being married.
“We’ve had to work hard on our relationship but I think that pays off in a way where you just become so connected to each other, and so close, and so just solid with each other,” Hailey said. “And I mean, obviously, you’re my best friend.”
Justin responded, saying, “I think the security marriage gives you is that you make a covenant before God to love that person for better or for worse, in sickness and in health.”
“Which is something that you’ve done amazing for me – you were there when I was really struggling,” the singer told Hailey.
Hailey said she was nervous about kissing Justin in public at the beginning of their relationship.
In an October feature with Vogue Italia, Hailey said she used to avoid kissing Justin in public at the start of their relationship.
“For a long time, I couldn’t do it. I didn’t kiss him in public, I didn’t like the idea of people watching us at certain moments,” she told the publication.
She said it was difficult to be in a relationship “under the eyes of all” but that constantly trying to avoid PDA eventually got exhausting.
“The fact is, we love each other,” she said. “And there is really nothing to hide.”
Justin said his “biggest dream” is growing old with Hailey.
This month, Justin took to Instagram to wish his wife a happy birthday and shed light on their sweet relationship.
Part of the caption read, “I am Home wherever you are. You are my safe place. I am completely and utterly obsessed with who you are. My biggest dream is growing old with you. I can’t believe you are mine forever.”
