“Fixer Upper” icons Chip and Joanna Gaines have become household names as their HGTV show has skyrocketed. And that’s because the success of that show hinges mainly on the likability, integrity and accessibility of their marriage.
So what’s the secret to their success? It may be surprising to hear.
“Obviously Jo and I as a couple, we just don’t want to redline,” Chip said in an article of Parents magazine. “You know, we don’t want to run so hard after some dream or some goal only to find out that we’ve neglected the thing that means the very most to us, which is our marriage and our relationship.”
Which seems to be impossibly difficult given their busy lives. Chip and Joanna at any one time juggle between the two of them a busy shooting schedule, work and entrepreneurial projects, and four kids. Such a life demands that they continually strive to improve and strengthen their bond.
One fan tweeted, “If my marriage isn’t like Chip and Joana Gaines, I don’t wanna get married.”
Another fan shared a similar thought: “Chip and Joanna Gaines are the ultimate marriage goals.”
So what’s the secret? According to Chip, it’s not much of a secret at all.
“People ask all the time, ‘How do y’all have such a great marriage, and what’s the secret? There’s no secret. It’s hard work. Jo and I have struggles and fighting and arguments just like anybody else.”
“This isn’t like we got lucky and hit the lottery, and the two perfect people fell in love,” he added.
What do you think? Please pray for Chip and Joanna that God will continue to bless their marriage. Read about what major companies have promised their employees if Trump signs the tax plan.
