Justin Bieber On First Year Of Marriage: The Peaches singer opened up about his marriage and looked back at his journey with his wife, Hailey Bieber. He said that the first year of marriage was “really tough”.
Justin Bieber, in a recent interview with GQ, said that he was someone who always felt “compelled” to marry. And while the 27-year-old is holding off on fatherhood now, he revealed that he does plan to have kids in the future. “I just felt that was my calling. Just to get married and have babies and do that whole thing,” he told GQ.
Bieber also opened up about how newlywed life is not always easy and fun, especially for him and Hailey. “The first year of marriage was really tough because there was a lot, going back to the trauma stuff,” said Bieber.
The Peaches singer talked about the lack of trust and how it sometimes feels like he’s walking “on eggshells.” “There was just lack of trust. There was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with because it’s scary. You don’t want to scare them off by saying, ‘I’m scared.’”
The couple’s connection dates all the way back to 2009 where they met for the first time. They formed a friendship and even briefly dated in 2016. But before their marriage and the romance they have now, Bieber struggled a lot with his personal life. He had many evident battles with substance abuse, his physical health and mental health. All of his struggles played out before the whole world.
While Bieber’s career saw major success with all the years, his personal battles were getting more serious. “I had all this success and it was still like, I’m still sad, and I’m still in pain. And I still have these unresolved issues. And I thought all the success was going to make everything good. And so for me, the drugs were a numbing agent to just continue to get through” said Bieber.
But Bieber also said that this feeling has changed with time. He said that he now has a stable home life with a significant other that he truly loves and vice versa. The singer thinks that it’s beautiful to create memories and to have something to look forward to as a couple and as a family.
“Before I didn’t have that to look forward to in my life. My home life was unstable. Like, my home life was non existing. I didn’t have a significant other. I didn’t have someone to love. I didn’t have someone to pour into. But now I have that” Bieber told GQ.
