8. Healthy Jealousy

Although many would say being jealous in a relationship isn’t good for the couple, Jessie James has a different outlook on it. “I think it is healthy to have that jealousy! He and I both are the same person when it comes to a relationship! If we’re at a dance party and girl wants to dance with him and a guy wants to dance with me, we’re not into it! Even though it’s just friendly, we both get jealous! As long as he’s honest with me, which he is, we’re fine!”

7. Separate Careers

With Eric’s NFL career playing with the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and now Tennessee Titans, Jessie James had to make a lot of concessions including moving her family from Denver to New York and has never wavered in her support of her husband. At the same time, Jessie was working on her music career but when asked about the the pros and cons of marrying an NFL player she said, “I think the pros are everything — it is so much fun to be a part of something so exciting. And I’m impressed by him every time he’s on the field. He’s such an athlete and God gave him talent and he works his butt off. The con: You never want to see your loved one get hurt. That would be so scary, right?” Eric has also made sure to put in effort to support his wife as well and while with the New York Jets talked to his coach about missing practice to attend the 2014 CMT Awards in Nashville with her. “Obviously, she’s very important to me and her career is very important to me as well,” Decker said. “Any relationship is give and take. It’s funny how this became such a story. It was an opportunity to get down there [to Nashville] and be around our friends and be around the music industry that she’s a part of.”
