Pink reveals secret to 15-year marriage with Carey Hart: 'We don't need each other'

Pink doesn’t "need" her husband – but they "choose each other".

The Cover Me In Sunshine hitmaker has been married to Carey Hart – with whom she has Willow, nine, and Jameson, four – for 15 years, and has said that whilst the couple "want" to be with each other, they would
be able to survive on their own.

During an appearance on E!’s Daily Pop, Pink was asked about being the "president of the ‘I don’t need a man’ club”, and she said: "I was, and I’m still in that club. I just happen to have a wonderful man by my side. But I don’t … neither one of us need each other, we want and we choose each other."

Pink, 41, also spoke about the experience with mum guilt, as she said she still struggles with feeling guilty "every day", but reminds herself she "must be doing something right" in raising her brood because they are "very joyous little people".

She added: "I don’t not have guilt, I have guilt every day. I beat the crap out of myself as a mum, but I constantly check in with [my kids].

They’re very joyous little people, and so I must be doing something right. I hit the jackpot with my babies."

Meanwhile, the Just Give Me a Reason singer recently said her "main goal" in working through her issues with Carey is to make sure they don’t "break up" their family.

She said: "It can be challenging, and there's good days and there's bad days. I think it's an impossible expectation for you to think that you're going to evolve at exactly the same pace as another person in exactly the same direction.

So it takes work to redefine what's important. I don't want to break up my family. That's been my main goal, since I had a broken family. So sometimes you have to let it go. You can't die on every mountain."

Pink also admitted she has "grown up" with Carey by her side, and the pair have figured out how to give each other the space they need to be their own people outside of their marriage.

She added: "We've really grown up together. When you first get together, you look at that person as your entire world. One person can't be your entire world. You have to have your own passions, your own friends, your own time to yourself. I used to be super needy. Now we expect less of each other, and that allows us to give each other more somehow."

Pink's new music doco All I Know So Far is available now on Amazon Prime.
