Pink reveals she has an 'awful' marriage to husband Carey Hart

The pop star did NOT hold back on Instagram!

American songstress Pink, (real name Alecia Beth Moore), has been married for 14 years and to mark her wedding anniversary this year, she chose to face some hard truths.

Taking to Instagram, Pink shared an emotional post dedicated to her husband Carey Hart, admitting their union has had a few bumps along the road. So much so, she revaled that their marriage has been both "awful" and "wonderful".

"He's still my favorite sweet little dirtball. He and I have been at this a long time, and it is our relentless and stubborn idealism that keeps us together," she wrote in her heartfelt post.

"Marriage is awful, wonderful, comfort and rage. It is boring, terrifying, and a total nail biter. It is loving another fallible creature while trying to love yourself. It is a lifetime of coming back to the table."

In fact, things were so rough between the couple, at one stage in their marriage they both walked away from it.

A mere two years after tying the knot in a Costa Rican beach ceremony in 2006, Pink announced her separation from Carey.

However, their connection appeared to be too strong to completely throw in the towel. The two reconciled one year later in 2009 and after some effective therapy sessions, they've overcome the ups and downs together.

Pink is renowned for her honesty amongst fans.

"People laugh at us because we're either fighting or laughing," Pink said alongside a photo of the pair hugging. "They roll their eyes when we talk about therapy. But I'll tell you what. It's worth it. All of it. Even when it isn't.

"Therapy isn't for weak people or hippies or liberals. It's for broken people that want to be whole. It's for runaways that want a family. It's a lesson on how to sit down and listen. How to love yourself so that the other person can, too.

"I love you babe. I'm grateful we made it to this photo."

Pink's beautiful tribute to her husband comes just a week after he took to social media to gush over his wife on her 41st birthday.

"Happy birthday to my MUCH better half, @pink," the 45-year-old captioned a number of family photos on Instagram.

"I've been w/ you for almost half of your life! It's been so amazing to watch you grow from a young hellraiser, to the best mom to ever do it, role model, philanthropist, icon, and wife. Enjoy your birthday baby."

The former motocross champion and talented singer share daughter Willow, nine, and son Jameson, three.
