Miranda: Marriage Works Because We Have Separate Careers

“Our marriage works because we have other stuff going on,” Miranda says.

Absence makes the marriage grow stronger, or so Miranda Lambert tells USA Weekend.

“We text a lot. Our marriage works because we have other stuff going on," she says. "I’ve learned that if you’re someone’s world or someone’s your world, eventually it will explode.”

What have she and hubby Blake Shelton taught each other?

“He’s taught me to not take myself so seriously," she says. "I would never laugh, and I had no sense of humor. I had to work all the time. He made me have fun. I think I’ve taught him how to really love. I don’t think he ever did before our relationship.”

But don't look for babies anytime soon.

“I’m still selfish and want to be with my husband,” she says. “I don’t want to give anything up. When I’m 30 we’ll sit down and have a conversation.”
