Jenna Dewan Talks And Opens About Married Life:

Jenna Dewan met her husband, Channing Tatum on the set of “Step Up” released on 2006. On December 2016, Jenna shared how she and her then boyfriend Channing’s romantic union started. Jenna divulged,

'It was two nights of being weird. We hadn't even kissed. And then he went out partying with a bunch of dancers.His room was right above mine, and he came down drunk with a sombrero on, banging on my door. He was like, "I couldn't stop thinking about you. Let's do this. I just want to be with you." From that point forward, we were together.'

After dating for some years, Jenna and her husband Channing Tatum exchanged wedding vows and got married on July 11, 2009.

Every marriage has obstacles, and in an interview on April 13, 2017, she revealed that the biggest problem in their relationship is communication.

'You change when you’re together from 25 to 35. I think maybe in my early 20s, I might have tiptoed around issues or didn’t want to make too many waves. Now it’s like, "This is how I’m feeling." You have to be okay with the other person becoming defensive, to let them be emotional and accept that it won’t be okay for a while.' 

Jenna is a feminist, and she feels lucky to have a husband who supports women rights. Sharing the same, she stated,

'We should want equality for men and women. Men should want that too. Chan is for women’s rights and so am I. 

Moreover, she added,

“Women should have the right to be the best they can be and make their own choices for themselves. Our daughter is young, but I think as she gets older, she's going to be all about the standard for women we keep at home—she's going to be strong.' 

Jenna addressed the most asked question as,

'I think all women should keep it exciting for themselves. People always ask, "Do you do anything to keep it fresh for your man?" I hate that question. I’m like, "No. Why is it for your man? 'I do things to keep it fresh for myself. The lingerie I buy is not for him necessarily. It's for us and for myself. If you feel sexy, then it's good for you.'

Jenna and Channing had welcomed their daughter, Everly Elizabeth Maiselle Tatum back on May 31, 2013. Also, Jenna shared that they may have more children in years to come and said,

'We are not sex schedulers – not yet! Give us a couple more years. Maybe with child number two. There’s a beauty in being two busy people because we get a lot of time to miss each other. To continue to miss someone after so many years is kind of a blessing in disguise.'
