"And we actually enjoy each other's company. How weird is that?"

No doubt, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are juggling demanding careers and intense travel schedules. So how do the country super stars — who wed in 2005 — keep their love going strong?

"Sometimes husbands and wives don't want to work together but we work pretty well together," Yearwood told CountryLiving.com in a new interview. "We've been married almost 13 years, and when we got married we made a very conscious effort to be together and not apart. We've both been married before and it doesn't work when you're not together. That's kind of been the benchmark of our marriage that we try really hard not to be apart. And we actually enjoy each other's company. How weird is that?"

Earlier this week, the duo enjoyed some meaningful bonding time volunteering for Habitat for Humanity working on the non-profit's 35th Jimmy & Rosalynn Carter Work Project in Mishawaka, Indiana (the couple first got involved with the organization pitching in for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in 2007).

"It's just one of those things that no matter how much you give, you get more out of it," Brooks said of the experience. Here's to many more happy and healthy years of love, touring, and building together, Brooks and Yearwood!
