Carrie Underwood Allure Cover Story: Singer Opens Up About Her Marriage and Gay Marriage
Carrie Underwood stuns on the cover of Allure magazine's February 2013 issue. In the accompanying interview, the songbird answers some tough questions about marriage -- her own and the issue of gay marriage.
Country music may be known for its cheating songs, and a lot of professional athletes are known for their cheating scandals, but Carrie doesn't worry about her husband, Nashville Predators star Mike Fisher.
"We've seen a lot of celebrities, professional athletes, not exactly always being on their best behavior away from girlfriends, wives, families," Carrie acknowledges to Allure. "People would say, 'Do you ever worry that he's an athlete, he's young, he's good-looking?' And I've never had to worry about him because I've never trusted anybody so completely ... He just wouldn't do that."
She also shared her thoughts on why women tend to give power up to men so easily. "We want that person to be everything we've always wanted," she says. "If they're not Prince Charming, we try to make them Prince Charming. But Prince Charming does exist! I found one."
Last year, the Oklahoma native was at the center of the gay marriage controversy, coming out in support of equal rights to marry. When Allure asked Carrie to elaborate on her stance, the singer answered, "I'm in favor of acceptance. I am a Christian person, and I do love the Lord, and I feel no matter who you are, what you believe, how you live your life, it's not my place to judge. I don't have that power. I don't want that power. It's my place to love and to show God's love to other people, even if they don't live a life like I live. So that's where I'm coming from."
