Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard were doing solo therapy sessions so they had time to “talk shit about each other.”
A married couple – parents of Lincoln, Delta, eight and six – “fought each other” at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
And in order to “cope” with their “irritations” with each other, they took turns turning to their therapist to let off steam.
Appearing on Tuesday (6/29/21) episode “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” the Frozen star said, “At the beginning of the pandemic, we fought each other and then all the doors in our house were locked.
“We had to stay inside and we were like woof! We need to deal with the trouble. “
“[He] suggested that we are both so annoyed with each other because the reality is that if you live with one person, I don’t care if it’s your partner, your husband, your wife, or your roommate, you need to brush up on your set tools because this person annoys you. Relationships take work. “
Talking about their solo trips to see a therapist, she added, “And we did and it was great.
“When you have a third party to moderate any controversy, it’s always a safer place.”
The 40-year-old actress previously hailed therapy for bringing “personality” to their relationship.
Earlier this year, she said: “Therapy was of great importance to us during the pandemic. We both rely on her, my husband and I, for personal growth and, ultimately, to bring what we have learned individually into relationships. ”
The couple, married since 2013, share the ups and downs of their marriage because they want people to know it takes work like any other romance that isn’t in the spotlight.
Dux previously said, “We don’t want anyone to think that we have met and it was easy because if it is someone’s expectation of a relationship and of course marriage, that is a bad expectation.”
