Celebrity relationships can be precarious. Busy schedules and constant media attention can have adverse affects on even the strongest relationships. Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are one of those couples that has proven that they can juggle both their career’s and their marriage successfully.
The pair attribute their success to a number of things, including spending time apart. As Underwood prepares for her follow-up album to 2012’s Blown Away, hubby Mike Fisher steers clear and lets her focus.
“I stay out of her way. I go golfing or go fishing or something,” he admits.
Underwood speaks to this as well adding, “He stays away. That whole creative process is such a weird thing, and I’ve talked to other people in the music business and friends and what they do and we all kind of have our own ‘isms.”
Another secret the two cite as being part of their recipe for success is compromise. While Underwood is a very public animal rights spokesperson and activist, her husband is an avid hunter. Although this obviously presents some conflicts of interest, the couple find a middle ground by agreeing to disagree. Through avoiding meat from large-scale producers and serving only what Fisher kills, they are able to maintain their personal values while also being supportive of each other.
Underwood and Fisher will be celebrating their 4th anniversary this summer.
