E!: Carrie Underwood & Mike Fisher ‘have had a few bumps’ but are devoted

Embed from Getty Images
E! has an exhaustive article about Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher’s relationship, using older quotes that each of them have given in interviews. It’s suspicious in that there was a similar cover story in US Magazine months ago when no one was particularly concerned about them. Now that the stories are coming up again it sounds like they’re trying to get ahead of something. When I say the E! story is exhaustive it’s either the work of a detail-oriented writer who doesn’t get edited down (the author does many in depth stories for E!, also to be fair to her she’s likely told to write these kind of pieces) and/or it’s damage control. Below is a mere fraction of the story with new quotes from E!, it went on for about twice as long as I expected.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher… have weathered their share of turmoil sprinkled in with the blessings over the eight years of marriage that they’re celebrating today, and it takes an elevated level of commitment (beyond just “I do,” that is) not to cut and run when the going gets tough.

With eight years of marriage now under their belt, Underwood and Fisher have had a few bumps in the road, but their devotion to each other remains strong.

Fisher said about his wife back in 2012 on Behind the Music, “There’s so much to love about her. She’s funny, she’s very caring, she loves me with everything she’s got—and I do the same for her.”

And Underwood said, blushing, “I’ve never considered myself a person to need a man in my life to make me feel complete, but I need that man, that particular one.”

[From E!]

The mere fact that there are so many stories about Carrie and Mike’s marriage and how they’re fine and working on it make it sound like a ton of work. As someone whose marriage didn’t last, I feel like if it’s this much work it’s a sign. You can love your partner and not be able to negotiate or communicate well with them, but maybe these two are happy now and will stay together. I really wonder though, especially when there are so many stories like this.

    There is probably something going on, too many stories for there to be nothing going on

  2. Tiffany says:

    Yeah, I mean dude retired and then returned.

    Those two spent a ton of time not really being with each other for periods of time. When you have a partner who like clockwork has a 82 game season and then not, it is a adjustment. I did not ignore Carrie’s excitement about him returning.

  3. Wellsie says:

    I do not get how people find this man attractive. Neanderthal vibes.

  4. Lex says:

    Im from the wrong country to know of her music and yes its late to the game but I am obsessed with her song “before he cheats”!!! Oh man its amazing. Wanna scream it at karaoke!

    • babypeanut says:

      If you like Carrie’s more aggressive singing, try out her cover of Paradise City. I love it.

  5. HelloSunshine says:

    So his side piece is knocked up or about to tell all or something? That’s my assumption when a couple tries to present a united front and it’s so over the top like this. Or they’ll be divorced in six months I guess

  6. Winnie Cooper's Mom says:

    Getting some Heidi Klum/Seal vibes from this couple. “Oh we are so in love… look at how much I love this person… see? See??” Yeah this isn’t good. I give them less than 6 months before the sh*t hits the fan.

    Ban.d aid baby

  8. DragonWise says:

    Boy, is that anniversary Insta post is all kinds of cringe! So try-hard, but weirdly antiseptic. Carrie has a great voice, but a nothingburger personality with a weird edge. I’m not surprised her relationship seems a bit off.

    Them chiclet teefs.

      He’s a hockey player. People in that line of work generally don’t get to keep their natural teeth for long.

  10. MattyLove says:

    I’m just thrilled we’re not still talking about her face.

  11. KEEKS says:

    Hmmm. Didn’t I just read in some crap gossipy site that they were renewing their vows? Yikes. Renewing vows, tattoos of a signif other or over PDAing the shit out of social media is a sign of problems. They both seem dead in the eyes. I don’t care, phony AF

  12. A says:

    I remember an interview she did with Oprah where I remember wondering why they got married (at least when they did). I give her credit for being honest – she was talking about how hard/weird it was to adjust to being a couple, like how she had to sign his name on Xmas cards instead of just her own and it felt so odd to her.

    I guess I just assume for most people that before they get married, they will have already been super close and committed, and so it won’t feel like such a massive life change…..the ones who are like “I was basically a single person and now my life has instantly changed!” confuse me.
