She said on Live with Kelly and Ryan, “You’re going to fight, you’re going to have disagreements. Relationships, marriages are not sprints, it’s a marathon. There’s going to be like, mile 24 when you’re like, ‘I quit.’ But you just got to push through. Just push through. There’s really nothing that’s that insurmountable, besides abuse or things of that nature.”
