The key to their happy marriage

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Chip and Joanna Gaines finally answered a question many of their fans were dying to know. The couple shared the truth about their marriage and revealed what exactly makes it so strong.

Chip noted that it’s not always perfect as he and Joanna don’t agree on everything. In fact, they are ‘yin and yang’ but in their case, the opposites do attract.

He explained:

I would argue that at the end of the day, we learned early that we’re a lot stronger and powerful when we’re pulling together, as opposites to pulling against each other. We’re a powerful force when we operate like that.

Chip followed up by revealing the secret ingredient to their long-lasting union. According to him, it’s a mutual respect.

He said:

A lot of hard work goes into this, but if you can get to mutual place of respect, you can change the world.

Previously Chip shared that Joanna changed him, making him a better person. She helped him to mature and become a wonderful husband and a loving dad he is. What an inspiring couple they are!
