Mirror.co.uk reported that the pair has made it so far by doing therapies that are needed. She quoted,

"We have a very healthy marriage and we got there by doing therapy when we needed it, and constantly doing fierce moral inventories.

We both take responsibility when we are wrong, and I think it is easy to work with him because I married him, because I enjoy spending time with him and I trust him. That is exactly what I want in someone that I work with."

Kristen confessed that they used to have a lot of fights during the first year of their marriage that she even at some point refused to hold onto the relationship anymore.

Despite all this, the couple didn't give up and hold strong onto each other, working out on every aspect of their marriage. She further shared,

One thing I like to reiterate ... is that we've done a lot of work on our relationship. We're very focused on staying together. We've made a choice to love each other but realise relationships are a lot of work. I think it's responsible to be honest about that.

Now, this ideal couple lives happily with a perfect family in their grand mansion in New York City, New York.

 A love story that began at a birthday dinner

One of the Hollywood's cutest couples, Kristen and Dax had first laid eyes on each other back in 2007 in a mutual friend's birthday party.

However, unlike other love stories, it was not a love at first sight for the pair. In an interview with Good Housekeeping Magazine, Dax revealed that it was "not electric" at first.

He quoted:

"When I met her and her friends, I was suspicious of their unbridled happiness, I thought, 'Something stinks here; they're in a cult."

Later, after two weeks they met again and it was on from that point. Their love story was pretty much of a rollercoaster ride as both had a completely opposite personality.

Kristen told Flare magazine about how terrified she was that their relationship would not work out. She stated,

"He was a drug addict and he was wild, and I was very much a good girl who went to Catholic School, did great in college and started working immediately."

Dax too confessed about his troublesome past of addiction and quoted,

"All the things I'd done were terrifying to her, and she had a hard time believing I would ever be able to stay married and monogamous and a father and all those things."

For the first year and a half we were together, that was what we battled over almost weekly."

We'll tell you more about their happy family later, but first, let's find out how they got married.
