Chip Gaines on His Marriage to Joanna: ‘We Care More About One Another’ Than ‘Being Right’

Chip and Joanna Gaines’ 16-year marriage hasn’t always been perfect, but it’s their genuine love for each other that keeps them saying “I do.”

The Fixer Upper alums recently opened up about their relationship for PEOPLE’s Kindness Issue, on newsstands Friday, November 8, and shared their secrets for a romance that lasts. The couple, who share five children and a slew of a lifestyle empire, revealed that when things get tough, they always put kindness first — even when they are at odds.

“Jo and I are the best of friends, and yet obviously we don’t agree all the time,” Chip, 44, admits. “I’ve conceded to her dozens of times, if not hundreds throughout our relationship, and she has done the same with me.”

He adds, “In the end, Jo and I sincerely care more about one another than we do about one of us being right during a debate.”
