    26 Times Kristen Bell And Dax Shepard Proved Marriage Is Hard But Absolutely Worth It

    Because love is about making it work.

    Here are Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell, often called the perfect Hollywood couple:

    They've been together for over 12 years, which sounds like #goals, but they've made an effort throughout their relationship to show how imperfect and difficult love actually is.

    Here are some of their best and realest moments:

    1. When they got into a fight so intense that they blacked out and then made it up to each other by adopting a dog.

    2. When Dax laughed at Kristen for crying at their wedding.

    3. When they almost broke up during a fight that started with Kristen turning on showtunes.

    4. When they took their fight about chair placement to Instagram in the #2017LazyboyDebate.

    5. When Kristen got real about how embarrassing Dax was when he met Jay-Z.

    6. When Dax introduced Kristen to her celebrity crush, Riz Ahmed, in a way that sounded like she wanted a threesome.

    7. When Kristen had to ask Dax to nurse from her breast when she had a blocked milk duct.

    9. When they made fun of tabloids for asking for comments on their "marriage problems."

    10. When Kristen had a breakdown because Dax surprised her with a sloth, which is her favorite animal.
