American Idol judge Luke Bryan has been married to his wife Caroline for over 14 years. That may not seem like very long to some of us, but in Hollywood, it can be an impressive feat to break the 10-year mark.

Luke Bryan Shares The Secret Of His Marriage To Wife Caroline
Luke told People magazine that the pandemic has brought him and his wife Caroline closer together. He joked about how important alcohol is to their relationship, and then gave a more serious answer about communication.
“Obviously quarantine has certainly put its share of new things to navigate,” Luke said. “Caroline and I are used to spending quite a bit of time apart, and now I’m just here every day. But the main thing with us is properly inserting alcohol in parts of the relationship — it does a really, really good job for us. I’m playing!”
“It’s all about communication and giving each other time to go do the things that we’re passionate about,” the country star shared. “But the communication is so critical. When you get your wires crossed … I know it sounds cliché, but never go to bed mad. You really have to abide by that stuff.”
Luke also said it’s important to let small things go, sharing, “It never gets easier, but when you can share a wonderful life together, it makes it all worth it.” He said he and Caroline “have a great time,” adding that they’re “really, really still so blessed that we’ve been able to navigate all this and my career, and then have a great marriage through it all.”
Do Luke And Caroline Have Kids?
Sine getting married in 2006, Luke and Caroline have had two sons together. Thomas “Bo” Boyer is 12, and Tatum “Tate” Christopher is 10. The couple also took in Luke’s nephew and nieces after their parents passed away.
Sadly, Luke’s sister Kelly died in 2007, and her husband Ben died seven years later. Luke and Caroline stepped in to take care of Til, Jordan, and Kris. Caroline said they “never thought twice about it.”
The couple has also raised awareness of Congenital Heart Disease after their young niece Brett passed away of the condition. Brett was the daughter of Caroline’s brother Bo and his wife Ellen.
Luke and Caroline met at Georgia Southern University in 1998. They dated, then broke up for five years before reconnecting. “When we finally got back together, we knew the second from the first time we saw each other that we would get married, start a family and all that,” Luke said. “It was pretty cool.”
