Gwen Stefani never thought she would be a failure at marriage, but when her relationship to Gavin Rossdale ended—that’s exactly how she felt. Gwen tells Glamour, “I don’t think you’ll talk to one person who didn’t make it in a marriage who’s not gonna feel that way. The intention of being married is the vow, right? You want to put everything into it to make it a success. And all I had to look at was the huge success of my parents: They just had their fiftieth anniversary.”

But marriage was really hard for Gwen she confesses!

“I had to work really hard at marriage, all the time, like everybody, but ours was extra hard, when you add that we’re from different countries, both of us being in music, and celebrity. [Marriage] was the one thing I didn’t want to fail at. People can say whatever they want to about me, and I don’t get too affected. But I didn’t want them to think I was a failure. There’s nothing weird about how I felt.”

Marriage is a two way split, but it seems that Gwen put too much pressure on herself as a ‘failure.’
