2. Boyer Made the First Move On Bryan
Boyer was actually the one to make the first move in the relationship, telling People:
He was always a gentleman. We hung out as friends first and he never made a move on me. I kissed him first! He was always so scared of making a girl feel uncomfortable, he wouldn’t cross a line.
Boyer also said that her husband is the same as he was when she first met him, saying:
In college, we used to go dancing in a club til 4 a.m., and he’s just as silly at home as he is on stage. He walks around dancing all day, just being goofy.
3. Family Is Boyer’s Priority
Boyer and Bryan have two sons together – Thomas Boyer Bryan and Tatum Christopher Bryan. Boyer told Country Weekly:
With three boys in my house, I’m constantly on the go and cleaning … Luke being the messiest one. I have no aspirations for anything else in the industry. My main focus are my kids and seeing Luke as much as possible. Also, I really have no talent anyway.
Boyer is a hard-working mother and her husband does not fail to notice all her efforts, telling Taste of Country:
Caroline busts her butt to be the perfect wife, lets me have this career and lets me shake my ass on stage every night.

5. Bryan Has Rules of Thumb to Keep His Marriage Healthy
So, what is the secret to the perfect marriage with Luke Bryan? Bryan says it’s all about pleasing his wife, revealing some of his secrets to marital bliss in an interview with Good Housekeeping:
I don’t let her know how much I spend on fishing … We don’t have big throwdown fights. If we have a beef, we always talk it out instead of letting it snowball … We have coffee in the morning, just Caroline and me. It’s my favorite time of the day; anytime we can have 30 minutes to talk, it’s just great … We do little nights out together. One Valentine’s Day, we got each other’s initials tattooed on our ring fingers … Every night before bed, I rub my wife’s feet. She says they’re the best foot rubs on Earth.
