Everything You Need to Know About Hailey and Justin’s Revealing Vogue Interview

Unless you have been taking a lengthy social media sabbatical, you know that Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber are married. The couple unexpectedly wed at a New York courthouse in September last year. The private couple most recently graced the cover of American Vogue along with an interview that offered an intimate glimpse into their relationship. The couple dated briefly in 2016 but the attempt at a stable relationship was short-lived. Hailey spoke of the break-up, saying, “Negative things happened that we still need to talk about and work through. ‘Fizzled’ would not be the right word – it was more like a very dramatic excommunication. There was a period where if I walked into a room, he would walk out.”

The couple spoke of their different approaches to handling emotion. Hailey shared that she often “struggles to be in touch with her emotions”. The pair also shared that they have been in therapy, trying to learn how to argue “without being unkind,” and to help them to develop healthy ways to communicate with each other. “We don’t want to lose each other,” Justin said in the interview. “We don’t want to say the wrong thing, and so we’ve been struggling with not expressing our emotions, which has been driving me absolutely crazy because I just need to express myself, and it’s been really difficult to get her to say what she feels.”

Hailey also spoke out about her struggle to handle the online criticism that the pair continue to endure. She said that when the marriage was first confirmed to the public, she felt that people were “rooting for them to fail.” Justin and Hailey also spoke about their decision to abstain from consummating their relation until after they had wed. Justin had been celibate for a year prior to beginning their relationship, sharing that he had been struggling with a severe sex addiction. “I wanted to rededicate myself to God in that way because I really felt it was better for the condition of my soul,” he explained of his decision to abstain from sex. “And I believe that God blessed me with Hailey as a result. There are perks. You get rewarded for good behavior.” Hailey also shared her hopes for the future of their marriage, saying, “…We’re two young people who are learning as we go. I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy … But there’s something beautiful about it anyway — about wanting to fight for something, commit to building with someone.”
