Marriage Is Hard Work For Kristen Bell & Dax Shepard

Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have admitted that they have to work hard on their marriage due to their differences.

The acting pair have been together for nearly 12 years and have two daughters, five-year-old Lincoln and four-year-old Delta, but recently admitted that things can get heated as they're "pretty much opposites", yet both "painfully stubborn".

In an interview with People magazine, Dax explained: "We definitely had to work really hard at being a couple because we're both incredibly, painfully stubborn, and we're pretty much opposites."

The pair got engaged in 2010 but vowed not to tie the knot until same-sex marriage was legalised in California, eventually saying 'I do' in 2013. Kristen has since admitted she had accepted it was unlikely they would ever actually get married because it wasn't a priority for Dax.

She said: "He has a great argument that the state having a piece of paper doesn't mean he's going to be nice to me and by my side for the rest of my life. Rather, that is going to be evidenced by how we treat each other and the commitment that we make.

"I had surrendered, like 'Okay, well, I'm never going to get any sort of traditional marriage out of this, and that's okay because I trust him.' I really, really trusted him and believed that we were going to go the long haul."

Dax then explained that he decided to propose as he wanted to make her happy, even though he wasn't worried about the "tradition or history of marriage".

He said: "Ultimately, I was like, 'Well, I'm doing it because my partner wants that'. Forget the tradition or history of marriage as a concept, you knowing I was doing something that I didn't want to do because I loved Kristen."
