No matter how much you love your spouse, it's easy to get a little sick of them from time to time if you spend too much time together. But that doesn't seem to be the case for Chip and Joanna Gaines, who have — and their show "Fixer Upper" into an empire.
During a press event at , the HGTV stars opened up to about what it's like to work together as a married couple. They made it clear that they trust each other's specialties and try not to micromanage one another.
"This is really not for everybody so don't feel insecure or try to force something if it's not," Chip said. "When you decide to go for it, just really weigh on each other's strengths and try not to cross over into each other's lanes. […] I am her biggest cheerleader when it comes to the things that she's rocking and rolling in and vice versa in my category. Just encourage one another's strengths and not be so particular that you constantly butt heads over it."
And Joanna added that sometimes, you need a second opinion that isn't your spouse's. "Get a mediator, get a designer … If you can't figure it out bring in someone that will help so you don't end up ending your marriage," she said. "And allow yourself room to make mistakes. […] Just always have it so it's not the end of the world and so you're not so stressed out."
Chip summed it up with his signature wit: "You can either bring in a designer now or you can bring in an attorney later. Your choice."
