David Beckham Opens Up About The ‘Tough Times’ With Victoria Beckham

They’ve dodged split and affair rumours for decades, and while David Beckham says his marriage with Victoria Beckham has not been easy at times, he’s proud they’ve remained “a strong family unit”.

Stronger than ever

Speaking in a candid interview with BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs Show, the 41-year-old soccer stud was asked why he thinks his marriage has been able to weather so many storms.

“I think because we’re a strong family unit,” he replied. “We’ve got strong parents; we were brought up with the right values.”

“Of course you make mistakes over the years, and we all know marriage is difficult at times and it’s about working through it, and whenever we’ve come up against tough times, you know, we know each other better than anybody knows us.”
