Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus Are Making Their Marriage Work After Two Near Divorces

Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus

After 25 years together Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish have had their fair share of ups and downs, but the secret to their longstanding marriage is simple.

“It’s like everything in life,” says Billy Ray, 54. “You take it one step at a time. One day at a time. I think one of the most important things in life and in a relationship is, you make adjustments.”

When the pair first met in 1991, Billy Ray was a homeless musician living out of his car. “It wasn’t pretty,” he says of his life at the time.

They wed in 1993 and had daughter Miley, now 23, Braison, 22, and Noah, 16. Billy Ray also adopted Brandi, 29, and Trace, 27, from Tish’s previous relationship. (Billy Ray has a third son, Christopher, 24, from another relationship.)

In 2010 he filed for divorce, but five months later he called off the split. Then in 2013 Tish filed for divorce, but the couple again rekindled a month later.

“Life is a series of adjustments, and you just try to do the best you can,” says Cyrus. “Like if you are going to park your car in a parallel spot and you start backing up and you don’t quite fit in, you have to back it up a little bit. But barring any unforeseen catastrophe if you make the right adjustments you will get in the spot. That’s about it. Life is a series of adjustments.”
