Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have been together for 15 years. While other celebrity couples divorced, these two lovebirds remain so in love with each other despite the ups and downs of their married life. What’s their secret? Below you’ll find some of the top reasons why their love remains strong as ever.
They take an extra mile of getting to know each other
In 2014, she told Elle that though she knows it sounds incredibly strange, she kind of likes getting married and then getting to know each other; because to her, it’s a more natural process.
The statuesque Oscar winner and the Nashville-based country singer may have seemed like a surprising pairing at first, but for countless times over, the couple has quietly proved just how right they were for each other.
They support each other’s careers
Between their seemingly separate worlds, the couple have seamlessly flowed back and forth: now a fixture at the CMAs, the ACMAs, the CMTs, etc. is Kidman, and she attended 2015 American Idol finale, while Urban has been to more Golden Globes, Academy Awards and SAG Awards ceremonies than he probably ever envisioned.- Advertisement -
Kidman does love being married to a musician and gets thrilled watching him perform, while there isn’t a lot of evidence suggesting she was a big country fan before they got together, it’s obvious she’s giving her all-out support to Urban.
They remain faithful and in love with only one another even at times when the other one’s away
Kidman shared that for every night Urban’s away, he would leave her a love letter, with a collective swoon at newsstands everywhere as a result.
For the most part however, they really keep it together by being together physically, with Urban hopping on a plane at one night and Kidman, whenever the country – or oceans – need crossing, doing the same.
They are very committed to their relationship – willing to help each other during rough times
For the couple, life hasn’t just been all romance, and perhaps, due to what they went through early on in their relationship, they appreciate what they have even more today.- Advertisement -
On the 2007 issue of Vanity Fair, Kidman reflected that it was barely two years since she and Urban had first met, and she would probably say that two very lonely people at a time when they could open themselves to each other managed to meet.
Kidman, who had her own fair share of struggles, admitted that what prompted Urban into recovery was a “deeply painful” place, but shared that having a relationship with someone who is in recovery made her have enormous learning, adding that she’s more than willing to walk it with him and that the two of them are very committed to their relationship.
They constantly work hard at their relationship
No famous couple makes it all these years without running the divorce-rumors gauntlet, of course.
In 2013, Urban said that people who really know them are most aghast and are like “How don’t you want to defend that?” to which he’s like it’s pointless for their life will be their way of defending it.
When asked how to keep the life they’ve built chugging along, Urban responded that they love each other and they work at it, and it’s beautiful work.
