The truth of Faith Hill and Tim McGraw's marriage

On the surface, Tim McGraw and Faith Hill look like they have it all. Two gorgeous, mega-talented people who have been married for almost 20 years—what's not to like? But with divorce rumors making headlines, it's easy to wonder if there's more to their relationship than what they let us see. What's really going on with Hill and McGraw behind the scenes? Are they happy, or are they actually on the verge of a split like the tabloids would have us believe? Here's everything you need to know about McGraw and Hill's marriage, from the juicy to the kind of boring. Sorry, but it's true!

Divorce rumors

In case you haven't heard what the potential issues in McGraw and Hill's marriage could be, here's a refresher. In early 2016, reports started popping up that claimed there was serious trouble between them…and for all kinds of reasons. In April, Hollywood Life alleged that Hill was leaning on the recently divorced Miranda Lambert for advice on how to cope with the end of her marriage. Reportedly, she'd decided to ask McGraw to "keep up appearances," despite their troubles.

So what were those "troubles?" According to Star, the couple was reportedly fighting constantly and in the midst of a $135 million divorce. With so many reports like this out there, it's easy to think that one of them would have to carry at least a grain of truth, right? If you're rooting for McGraw and Hill to stay together, we may have good news for you: maybe not!

They celebrated 19 years together

Another reason they're probably not splitting: they've made it so long together already! Back in October 2015, McGraw and Hill celebrated 19 years of marriage—an occasion McGraw included his fans in when he remembered the early days of his relationship with his wife at a concert that June. During his performance at Colorado's Taste of Country Festival, he revealed that he proposed to McGraw on that very stage when they were on tour together.

"I had in my dressing room… this foldout case that had a mirror in it that was my dressing armoire," McGraw said at the time, according to Entertainment Tonight. "I still have it to this day. When I came back offstage, [I saw] a Sharpie with lipstick kisses all over it, saying, 'Yes! I'm gonna be your wife.' It had, 'I love you' with big lipstick kisses. And this is the place right here." How sweet is that? These two are so meant to be.


And then, there was his Mother's Day post

If you want more proof that McGraw and Hill are good, this ought to do it. In honor of Mother's Day in 2016, McGraw shared the most adorable post on Facebook paying tribute to his own mom…and his wife.

"I've always been surrounded by strong, thoughtful and compassionate women. In my childhood, and now in my own home with my own family," he wrote. "So to all of my sisters, my mom, and my beautiful wife… all the mothers in my life, a big thank you and happy Mother's Day!! Y'all make this world we live in rock!"

So what's the verdict?

Despite the fact that those rumors continue to run rampant, it sounds like everything's just as good between the country sweethearts as it's always been. And if you're anything like us, that probably comes as a huge relief to you since a divorce between Hill and McGraw would be one of the saddest celebrity breakups ever. Having followed along with their love story over the past two decades, it's crazy to think it could end someday! And you know what that means? Love is real after all! At least, until the next round of divorce rumors hit the Internet. Let's just climb that mountain of heartbreak when we get to it…
