Justin Bieber Opens Up About His Mental Health Struggles and Marriage

Marriage can be hard for anyone who says “I do,” but getting married in your 20s as a music sensation can make things even more difficult.

Yes, we’re talking about 28-year-old Justin Bieber, who got married to his wife, Hailey Bieber, in 2018 at a New York City courthouse. The two had a second more lavish ceremony a year later. And while things may look lovely regarding their marriage from the outside, it turns out that Bieber actually struggles with his mental health on a daily basis.

When the two got married, Bieber was under the impression that being a husband was going to be the end-all-be-all of his problems. But that simply wasn’t the case.

“I remember when I first got married, I hit a little bit of an emotional breakdown because I thought marriage was going to fix all my problems and it didn’t,” he told Apple Music’s Ebro Darden in a candid interview. “It just kind of was a reflection of like, man, you’re a bit of a hypocrite, man.”

Bieber went on to explain how marriage has made him realize he may not be the person he thought he was when he said his vows. He also may have put some unfair expectations on his wife.

“You want your wife to do something that you’re not doing and it’s like, it’s hard sometimes to look in the mirror and really have to realize, man, maybe you’re not the person that you necessarily thought that you were,” he said. “And that’s just a result of trauma and life circumstances.”

Additionally, Bieber also explained how his relationship with his faith is also part of it, and how he’s leaning into that to help him overcome some of these struggles.

“Just the idea that I’m forgiven and that he’s walking me through this journey and day by day, I get to just get better and better and not be too hard on myself,” he said, adding that faith is what helps “be the best versions of ourselves.”

“And so that for me in that perspective has really changed everything,” he added.

Still, it seems as though the two are working through their struggles and love each other very much. To hear more from Bieber on his struggles with mental health and marriage, check out the video below!
