In a 2017 interview with Us Weekly, Dax said he and Kristen are “opposites,” admitting it takes “a tremendous amount of work and therapy for [them] to coexist.”
And earlier this year, Kristen shared that she and her husband had “needed a little therapy brush-up” at the beginning of quarantine.
“Every couple of years, we’re like, ‘We’re being very antagonistic towards each other,’ and we don’t want that,” the actor told People. “We go back to therapy and figure out what I’m not doing that’s best for you and what you’re not doing that’s best for me, and how we can serve this team goal better. It’s been incredibly helpful.”
“We don’t want anyone to think we met and it’s been easy,” Dax said at the time. “Because if that’s someone’s expectation of a relationship, and certainly marriage, it’s a bad expectation to have.”
“We don’t feel like we have an option to be anything other than honest,” he added.
