It’s hard to believe that Keith Urban and actress Nicole Kidman have been married for 10 years already.
Their high-profile romance makes headlines, but they’ve managed to outlast most celebrity couples by staying connected in their own special way.
“My husband and I never text each other,” Kidman revealed in an interview with DuJour. “We never do. Once in a blue moon, we’ll text. But mainly we say, ‘I want to hear your voice.'”
Although it may seem strange to ignore easily available technology to check in with your significant other, it’s a strategy that has worked wonders for the couple. “That’s very unusual but we’ve been together for 10 years,” Kidman explains. “We started like that and we haven’t changed it. We don’t email each other either. So it’s about trying to keep it as intimate and personal as possible.”
Urban and Kidman go out of their way to see each other as much as possible, no matter how busy their individual schedules may be.
“I had an opening of the play three nights ago, and he’s in the middle of a tour in the States. I said, ‘It’s too much for you to have to fly all the way back, don’t worry,’ and he said, ‘I’m flying.’ He flew 10 hours to come and be with me for the night, and then he flew back and did a gig. That for me is love in action,” she admits. “That’s extraordinary. But I would do the same for him and that’s what we’ve committed to as a couple.”
