Dolly Parton Finally Reveals Her Secret for a Long-lasting, Successful Marriage
Millions of Dolly Parton’s fans all over the world admire the famous Hollywood celebrity not only because of her superb acting and singing skills but also because of her inspiring love story. It seems Parton already has it all with both her career and love life going strong and well.
How does she manage to balance her personal and professional life so effortlessly? More importantly, how does she keep the flame from burning out in her long-lasting marriage? Dolly Parton finally reveals her secret in having a successful and happy relationship.
According to Parton, it isn’t easy to maintain her five-decade relationship with her long-time partner, Carl Thomas Dean. Just like any other normal couple, they also get into arguments and fights every now and then. However, she reveals they forgive each other and respect their differences in an effort to settle their issues. They also accept the fact that they cannot change some things about their partner. You have to accept your partner’s flaws and weakness and complement them with each other’s strengths (and vice versa).
Whenever they feel overwhelmed by the trials and challenges they faced, Parton says they never fail to remind themselves of the reason why they took a vow 50 years ago. She says they made a promise to love and care for each other till the end of their lives and only death could separate them. It lets them draw inner strength from their love to overcome any bumps they’ll encounter in their relationship.
Parton also adds having some distance from each other certainly helps in strengthening their love and passion for each other. She says their hectic schedules sometimes keep them separated. However, they don’t mind the separation and actually look forward to the day they’ll get reunited. This feeling of anticipation and yearning keeps the flame in their relationship from burning out.
Although Parton believes transparency is the key to have a lasting relationship, she says you don’t have to sacrifice your privacy to prove that you’re not hiding any secrets. Parton says she and her husband still has their moments of solitude. They respect each others’ privacy and treat it sacredly. If one of them needs some alone time, they are allowed some space to recollect their thoughts and connect with their emotions.
Parton also says they’re just trying to live their lives like an average couple despite being a celebrity. They try to find time to bond with each other and catch up whenever their schedules permit them. Parton adds having some disagreements also help. According to her, she knows when Carl is upset because she’s familiar with every line om his face, just as her husband knows every hair on her wig. Aside from that, she reveals how Carl isn’t exactly a fan of her songs, but he still loves her nonetheless.
