Chip and Joanna Gaines' relationship is not nearly as perfect as it seems, RadarOnline.com has learned.
"Jo and I learned pretty quickly, 'hey, if we're gonna get after it, let's do it all the way,'" Chip said in an interview with the Antioch Community Church about their marriage.
"I remember that Jo and I would get into little pickles and we would find ourselves pulling against each other on that tug of war of life," he said of their early marital problems. "And I remember again, very vividly, like it was yesterday, I remember Jo and I came together and we're like, 'we're not going to do that."

"We believe that was a lie from the enemy and when he would speak that she had done this, or I had done that, we would kind of dig into it," he noted of the role of faith in their marriage.
Chip, 41, said that the couple eventually began to work together to "win this war."
RadarOnline.com previously reported that the couple was plagued with debt in the beginning of their relationship, and has faced a slew of lawsuits as they've achieved HGTV fame.
As described in The Magnolia Story, they relied on their faith through the Antioch Community Church to help them through their rough times. However, the church has had rough times of their own after founder Jeremy Seibert was slammed for being anti-LGBTQ.
Seibert later denied those claims and still calls Chip and Joanna, 38, "dear friends."
