Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin on Marriage: ‘I Was Going To Stick It Out No Matter The Outcome’
By Movieguide® Staff
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are candid about their faith and how it anchored them despite, struggles before and during their marriage.
Early in their dating relationship, the couple said they uncovered trials that they had to overcome together.
“We always had so many conversations about, ‘What were our goals? Where did we want to end up at a certain age?'” Baldwin, 24, said on the IN GOOD FAITH podcast hosted by their mentors and friends Chelsea and Judah Smith. “We always talked about wanting to be married and be young, and have a young family, and have kids young.”
Bieber and Baldwin married in September 2018 after six months of dating. But Bieber revealed that it was always his dream to lead a healthy family; that started with his relationship with Baldwin.
“I had experienced so many things in my life. So many milestones and traveled the world and seen everywhere in the world. And I just got to a place where I was lonely, and I just didn’t want to do it all alone,” Bieber said. “I realized there was some serious healing I needed to go through in order to get to a place where I could be in a healthy, serious relationship because I had a lot of trauma and scars. So I just committed to working on those things and getting healthy.
“Luckily, Hailey accepted me as I was,” Bieber added. “Even when we got married, there was still a lot of damage and hurt that I still needed to work through, but you’ve seen my heart through it all.”
Baldwin noted that the two overcame Bieber’s mental health struggles through time and a robust support system.
“I was in it. I made a decision. I know for a fact that I’ve loved this person for a very long time and now would not be the time to give up on him. I just wouldn’t do that to him,” Baldwin said. “Imagine abandoning somebody in the middle of the worst time of their life, potentially. I’m not that type of a person. So I was going to stick it out no matter what the outcome was going to be.”
