"Rene and I had our tough times. It wasn't always easy. We had tension between us. It's never easy being husband and wife, but add to that we are in business together, dealing with all the added pressures of shows, concerts, tours, traveling. It was hard — a lot of hard work," she explains before adding, "Up until seven years ago, we weren't communicating properly."
Perhaps it was their lack of communication (at least in part) that spurred the star to take a break from the limelight and focus on her older and somewhat ailing husband. In January 2000—six years before Dion claims they fixed their problems—the couple renewed their vows in a lavish ceremony at Caesar's Palace Casino and Hotel. At the time, Dion's spokesperson claimed it was "a way to mark the start of her time out."
Dion blames that lack of communication  largely on her own habit of ignoring the issues at hand … until she finally turned to a friend for advice. So what did this (seemingly very wise) friend say?
For starters, she told the star that brushing it under the rug and hoping it would go away simply wouldn't work. To solve an issue, you have to talk about it.
"A very good girlfriend talked to me about the real meaning of communication, the right way to communicate and really properly communicate on an equal and respectful level," the mother of three reveals. "[It] changed the way we related to each other. My husband is also my best friend. We trust each other with our lives. We live for each other."
And even if actions speak louder than words, she's telling the truth. The couple has since been remarkably romantic, jetting away to celebrate anniversaries and making time with their boys a priority. Just 18 months ago, the entire family celebrated Celine and Rene's 17-year anniversary with a family ski trip in Utah. "The twins play in the snow, we will make snowmen and Rene-Charles will learn to ski. It will be phenomenal!" the singer gushed to the Las Vegas Sun.
Sounds like a pretty good situation to us.
Now that she has found the secret to a happy marriage, the Las Vegas headliner only wishes more people had discovered it as well.
"It's sad that so many people break up, their loving relationships end and divorce happens when, if there was proper communication, they would be able to hold on to the beauty of their early years together," she laments, but ends on a positive note. "We made it through, so everybody else can, too."
