Singer Pink has opened up about the challenges in her relationship with husband Carey Hart, admitting that at times the pair have gone a year without having sex.
Speaking during a candid interview with The Guardian, Pink, whose real name is Alecia Moore, explained that ‘monogamy is work’ for the couple, but that they ‘do the work and it’s good again’.
‘He’s a good man. He’s a good dad,’ the star, who shares daughter Willow, six, and son Jameson, nine months, with motocross rider Carey.
‘He’s just the kind of dad I thought he’d be and then some. And then I’ll look at him and go: I’ve never liked you. There’s nothing I like about you. We have nothing in common. I don’t like any of the sh*t you like. I don’t ever wanna see you again.’
‘Then two weeks later I’m like, things are going so good, you guys. Then you’ll go through times when you haven’t had sex in a year. Is this bed death? Is this the end of it? Do I want him? Does he want me?’
The couple have reportedly split twice throughout the course of their 11 year marriage, and have always been honest about overcoming the difficulties of raising a young family and keeping their romance alive.
‘We have learnt the art of communication,’ Pink said during an appearance on 60 Minutes earlier this month. ‘I don’t hand my wedding ring back every night like I used to. Cause that’s just dumb and I can’t actually get it off.’
The 38-year-old added to Us Weekly back in May that she couldn’t believe how much she was enjoying the stability of her role as a parent.
‘I honestly can’t believe how responsible I am,’ she said to the title. ‘All of a sudden I’m a soccer mom and doing the damn thing. No one would have guessed this for me. Honestly, I didn’t realize that you could enjoy it so much.’
