Mike Fisher Has Something to Say About His Marriage to Carrie Underwood

As a professional hockey player, Mike Fisher is going to let negative rumors about his marriage just skate by unremarked upon.

Words can have power and Fisher wants to make sure the public is not being played by this chatter.

Having exhausted our knowledge of hockey-related terms, we’ll now get to the issue at hand:

Last week, a report emerged online that claimed Fisher and Carrie Underwood were headed for a divorce.

This wasn’t the first time we had heard that the stars may be splitting, either.

In this case, however, a source told In Touch Weekly that hectic schedules for the athlete and the singer were making it difficult to connect.

They share a son together, but they rarely share the same bed.

“Just by the very nature of their jobs, Carrie is gone on long concert tours and Mike was away playing for the team a lot,” wrote this tabloid, adding that Fisher’s decision to return to hockey is creating a lot of tension.

Says this anonymous insider:

“If Carrie and Mike continue to grow apart, it will surely end in divorce for them. And that would be heartbreaking.”

We totes agree! They seem SO happy together!

Thankfully, Fisher is here to assure us that he and the former American Idol champion plan to remain happy… together.

On Sunday, he shared a verse from from Psalm 139:23-24 on Instagram that read as follows:

“Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”

Followers interpreted this as confirmation that his relationship was in trouble, prompting Fisher to issue a follow-up on Wednesday.

In response to a fan who said she was praying for the couple, Fisher wrote:

“We’ve never been better. Thanks.”

PHEW, right?!?

That was a close one, folks.

According to Us Weekly, things are going so well for Underwood and Fisher that they are hoping to expand their family in the near future.

“Everyone around her knows she wants a big family, and they’re always trying for another baby,” a friend of the Grammy winner tells this publication.

Fisher, though, is planning a return to the Carolina Panthers following a five-month retirement, so the timing isn’t ideal.

For her part, Underwood is still recovering from a horrific fall she suffered last November.

Both clearly have a lot going on in their lives.

Both those lives still include each other and, based on these most recent quotes, always will.

Concludes Us Weekly:

“Carrie and Mike have a great life and a very strong marriage – one that their friends envy.

“They are completely committed to each other and in it for the long run.”

Hooray! That’s more exciting than something very exciting that sometimes happens in the sport of hockey!


Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher: Headed for Divorce?!

Carrie Underwood and her husband, retired hockey player Mike Fisher, are easily the best looking couple at every Country awards show. No, scratch that — wherever they go. Yes, even after Carrie Underwood’s terrible accident.

But there’s more to keeping a marriage alive than outrageous good looks. Or even than sharing a child together.

According to a new report, Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher are headed for divorce.

It’s been a little over a year since the last time that we heard divorce rumors about Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher.

At the time, the couple was said to be squabbling over their life plans.

Carrie Fisher was touring all of the time because, you know, she has a music career.

It was reported that the couple had initially agreed to have four children, but so far has only one — little Isaiah.

So it was allegedly Mike Fisher who was unhappy with their marriage because their family wasn’t growing quickly enough for his tastes. But apparently, whatever it was, they worked it out, because that was all in late 2016.

Now, however, InTouch Weekly reports that Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher will divorce for different reasons.

“She and Mike love each other, but like any couple they’ve had challenges.”

But, according to their source, it’s become too much.

“So much so that at times, Carrie has been at the breaking point.”

Part of the alleged trouble in their marriage stems from similar issues that arose before.

“Just by the very nature of their jobs, Carrie is gone on long concert tours and Mike was away playing for the team a lot.”

It sounds like, this time, Carrie’s the one who’s unhappy. Well, unhappier.

“Carrie has wanted more quality time with Mike. They’ve only been on a couple of vacations together in the seven years they’ve been married.”

Mike recently retired from hockey … and then turned around and got back on the ice to work with a different team.

“She really thought that Mike’s retirement was going to give them the time they needed to work on making their family stronger.”

Mike Fisher’s ice fever — or whatever — may end up costing him his marriage.

“His decision put a huge strain on their marriage. If Carrie and Mike continue to grow apart, it will surely end in divorce for them. And that would be heartbreaking.”

It does sound like the size of their family continues to be an alleged issue for Carrie and Mike.

“Carrie’s been desperate to have a little brother or sister for Isaiah. But she’s been struggling to get pregnant.”

Well, they’re both gorgeous, but that doesn’t mean that they’re getting any younger.

“She was hoping Mike would become more involved in the process of possible IVF treatments, if it came to that.”

It seems that there may be some communication issues.

“[Mike] isn’t always cognizant of Carrie’s feelings and needs.”

Divorce would almost be a last resort for these two, however.

Carrie has stated in the past that she believes that God brought her and Mike together. Her faith is extremely important to her, and she reportedly feels like ending her marriage would have religious implications.

But this source claims that she may be out of options.

“If Carrie and Mike continue to grow apart, they will have no choice but to divorce.”

We wish Carrie and Mike the best, of course. We hope that they can resolve their differences happily as they’ve done before.
