Even in the beginning, it was clear that there were a lot of things that they needed to address and work on. Bieber and Baldwin struggled with a lot in their relationship and they are trying to do better this time around.

Before Bieber started dating Baldwin, he was in a high-profile relationship with Selena Gomez. Bieber and Gomez were on-and-off for about seven years. Their relationship was famously called “Jelena” and loved by fans all over the world.

However, Bieber and Gomez broke up in 2018. Not long after, he began dating Baldwin, whom he met many years ago. Even after he and Baldwin tied the knot in September of 2018, a lot of people never seemed to let go of Bieber and Gomez’s relationship.

There were constantly rumors about Bieber still missing and pining for Gomez. Because of this, it’s not surprising that some insiders alleged Bieber and Baldwin might have had “trust issues” in their marriage.

Justin Bieber has been struggling with depression

Another thing that made Bieber and Baldwin’s relationship not easy is Bieber’s struggle with depression. The singer has been open about how he has had a hard time being in the spotlight, especially since he became famous at a young age.

A source once told People: “He’s emotional and struggles a lot with the idea of fame — being followed, having his every move stalked by fans, cameras in his face. It all sets him off and he often feels like everyone is out to get him.”

In 2017, he canceled his Purpose world tour after 18 months on the road, which, as Bieber later explained to Vogue, was due to his depression.

“I got really depressed on tour… I was lonely. I needed some time,” he said.

Bieber is seeking treatment for his depression, which no doubt does take a bit of a toll on his marriage. However, he has shared that he is glad Baldwin is in his life, especially since his career makes life very unpredictable sometimes.

“Hailey’s very logical and structured, which I need,” Bieber told Vogue. “I’ve always wanted security—with my dad being gone sometimes when I was a kid, with being on the road. With the lifestyle I live, everything is so uncertain. I need one thing that’s certain. And that is my baby boo.” 

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin are doing better this time around

Marriage life has not been easy for Bieber and Baldwin. The latter even admitted to Vogue herself that marriage is “really effing hard.”

However, their second wedding might have been a sign that the couple is going strong and stepping into another chapter of their relationship together. A source told Us Weekly that things are definitely looking up for them as they have been working out the issues that they used to struggle with.

“Hailey isn’t insecure about Justin and Selena’s former relationship anymore and knows that she is the one who has the ring,” the insider shared. “Selena is not a threat to her at this point.”

The source also added: “It has been a process, but they have worked through it and have come out on the other side of things. They are in a much healthier and understanding space now and are so happy to be celebrating their love with their families and friends.”
