Being married isn’t easy for anyone, but it’s especially difficult when you’re away from your partner for weeks at a time. Kroeger and Lavigne weren’t about to make things so complicated. Instead, they created a simple list of self-imposed rules for keeping their marriage happy and healthy.
Kroeger and Lavigne are full-on rock stars, but they certainly don’t party like them — at least not since getting hitched. The couple admitted to People that one of their main rules is to abstain from drinking when they’re apart and to avoid nightclubs at all costs. Basically, if there’s a place where temptation runs rampant, these two think they’re better off staying in the tour bus.
“We don’t drink when we’re apart. Ever.” Kroeger said. “We don’t want to go anywhere that you’re asking for trouble. I don’t want to be in Europe texting her, like ‘Where are you?’ This way we don’t have to worry about any of that stuff.”
While most couples just rely on a fundamental understanding and deep-seated trust, Kroeger and Lavigne are proactive. Of course, rules are made to be broken. A year before the couple announced its amicable split, Lavigne was allegedly spotted drinking white wine without her wedding ring, and Kroeger was nowhere in sight.
