Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, have been together for years. Between their busy schedules and taking care of their sons, Isaiah and Jacob, the couple treasures any chance they get to spend time together.
During a 2016 interview with CMT, Underwood said that when she and Fisher do get the chance to go on a date, they enjoy going out to eat..
“We’ll go to dinner, and it will be nice,” she said.
Underwood also revealed her secret to maintaining a happy marriage, and what she had to say may surprise you.
As it turns out, Underwood isn’t really a sucker for stereotypical acts of romance. Instead, it’s the everyday actions that give Underwood butterflies for her husband.
“Honestly,” she said, “I’m the kind of person that’s like, ‘Aw, you changed the light bulb in the bathroom. Thank you.’ Or ‘You took the trash out. Aw. Oh my gosh, you emptied the dishwasher, yay! I don’t have to do it now.’“
Underwood said those little things mean more to her than any bouquet of flowers or long walk on the beach. Whenever Fisher does one of those things, Underwood said it makes her happy because it shows he’s thinking about her.
We think Underwood might be on to something!
Whatever her and Fisher’s secrets are to maintaining a happy relationship, they’re obviously working. Her affection shows in her song “What I Never Knew I Always Wanted,” which is about Fisher and their eldest son, Isaiah.
