Marriage can be hard—especially when you’re married to one of the most famous celebrities in the world.
For ELLE’s April 2021 cover story, Hailey Bieber opened up about some of the challenges she faced at the start of her union with Justin Bieber.
Of their September 2018 courthouse wedding, which preceded a bigger wedding bash one year later, Hailey reminisced that, at that point, Justin was “at a stage of his life where he could make decisions like, ‘I’m done with girls, and I’m done with fooling around, and I’m done with partying.'” She added that their friendship helped ground their romance. “We were friends first for a really long time before there was anything romantic. But we always knew that we were aligned on what we wanted in our future,” she said. “We had talked about wanting to be married young and having a family young and building a life. Even before we knew we wanted to be with each other.”
