‘God Just Put Us Together’: Gwen Stefani Credits Faith for Marriage to Blake Shelton by James Lasher for Charisma News
For many, opening up about failed relationships is a trying and painful experience. The moment when a future someone thought was certain is suddenly stripped away, can have a devastating effect to the heart, mind and soul.
In a recent episode of “The Drew Barrymore Show,” singer and “The Voice” judge Gwen Stefani shared about her marriage with her husband Blake Shelton and feeling like her life was over after her divorce.
When discussing their upcoming anniversary, Stefani shared what she believes is the cause of their happy marriage.
“God put us together. It was one of those situations where I didn’t see it coming,” Stefani said.

The two stars discussed the origins of Stefani and Shelton’s marriage and how they came to be acquainted with one another.
After divorcing her husband of 13 years, Gavin Rossdale of the rock band Bush, Stefani felt the loneliness and thoughts of failure that often come with ending a marriage. Claims of infidelity on Rossdale’s part rocked the singer’s world and the lives of their three children.
“I was like, ‘I’m gonna wake up every day. I’m gonna have a coffee. I’m gonna take care of my kids, and then I’m gonna go to bed.’ Like I’m never gonna kiss anyone,” Stefani shared. “I thought my life was over, and then Blake Shelton was like, ‘Hey. I’m Blake Shelton.'”
Shelton was also recovering from a divorce of his own.
His marriage to fellow country music superstar Miranda Lambert ended in 2015 shortly after Stefani’s divorce was finalized. This was a public and tumultuous time for both parties of the Shelton and Lambert divorce, as accusations of infidelity abounded and were highly publicized.
Stefani explained to Barrymore how it had to have been a God-thing, because of how little the two singers had in common.
