Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s Relationship Has Lasted Longer Than They Expected

When most people talk about “true love” or “soulmates,” what comes to mind is Romeo and Juliet, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, or maybe even Edward and Bella. But what do we think about Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani?

When they met on the set of The Voice in 2014, there was immediate respect for each other as artists. Was there anything else? Even before Gwen and Blake announced that they were both heading to divorce court, they seemed to have chemistry. Then again, Blake seems to have chemistry with a lot of people. We’re looking at you, Adam Levine.

Most fans, including the original Shelton-Stefani shippers, thought their relationship was a rebound. Something most people supported, but what did they think about their romance?

Before they announced that they were both coincidentally getting divorced, shippers and the rumor mill were already working in overdrive. It seemed like the world wanted to see two very different people hook-up.

That is exactly what they got when their relationship went public more than three years ago. At that time, most people thought it was just a cute fling. What do these guys have in common anyway? It turns out everyone was wrong, including the couple themselves.

In an interview, Blake confessed that he and Gwen thought their relationship was a rebound too.

He told TODAY: “I think if Gwen and I were being honest right now, talking about it, I think in the back of our minds we both kind of thought, it’s a rebound deal because we’re both coming out of a pretty low spot in our lives, and we’re kind of clinging to each other to get through this.”

This comes as a surprise, because they seemed to be very happy, always gushing about each other. Now, they’re throwing words like, “soulmates” around like it’s no big deal. Meanwhile, we want to know what’s next, and is he gonna put a ring on it?

What’s next for Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton?

The Voice fans just found out Adam is leaving. While many people were sad when they heard the news, they are also excited by his replacement. Gwen is coming back to the red seat. Once again, fans will watch the love birds compete against each other.

It should be interesting to see how the couple working together affects their relationship. They were only dating at the time they were both on The Voice. Things might be harder now that they are three years in.

It almost makes us wonder if this was all planned. If they really are planning on getting married in the future, we might see a proposal on stage. Then again, they might not want to get married ever again.

Are Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani planning on getting married?

It was about a year ago when people started talking about the pair getting married. They had said from the beginning that they wanted to take things slow, because of Gwen’s kids. They were also both afraid of rushing in too fast.

Now, it turns out that neither one feels the need to say I do. According to AOL, about a possible marriage, “They both came from difficult situations and marriages that didn’t last.” A source said, “they have worked hard to get past that and so appreciate what they have with one another. They feel as if they are soulmates and don’t need a ring and a wedding at the moment.”

If they really are soulmates, it would explain why there was so much heat between them when they worked together the first time. It also explains why, in this case, all their differences seem to help the relationship rather than hurt it.
