Willie Credits Faith For His Marriage
Willie and Korie have been married since 1992, and they share six children. It should come as no surprise to their fans that their strong Christian faith is one of the main things they credit for their loving marriage.
“I think our faith is a big part of that because you believe in something bigger,” Willie, 51, told Fox News. “When we’ve had difficult times, we know that there’s something else that we’re living for. And so that definitely has drawn us together.”
“There’s all kind of little things, you know?” he continued. “I try to give more than I take, and I try to serve. And so there are a lot of little things that we put in there. And now that we have grandkids, it’s even more. I’m so glad that we did stick it out, that we’re still together. And our kids are married now and can watch us. And so it’s a tribute. And we’re thankful we modeled that from our parents as well and grandparents.”

Korie, 49, could not help but agree with her husband on this.
“The secret to a successful marriage — I think I would just say it is just don’t quit because tough times will come, and we definitely experienced tough times,” she said. “But in those tough times, we’ve somehow turned back to one another, turned back to God. And rather than quitting, we just stuck it out and stayed together. And I think every marriage experiences that. And so that would be my advice.”
Willie and Korie went on to explain that faith impacts every aspect of their lives.
“Faith is everything to our family,” Korie stated. “Willie’s family, actually, his parents came to faith when he was about 3 years old. And it just changed everything for their family, for their life. I grew up in a family of faith, so it’s so important to us.”
“One thing that we realized when we did our show, ‘Duck Dynasty,’ was that people can be introduced to faith through all kinds of different ways,” she added. “And entertainment is shaping our world, our culture in such powerful ways. We as a people are just consuming large amounts of entertainment right now. And so why not do things within entertainment that are faith-filled, that are hopeful, that are positive, that push people toward something good in the world rather than the other way?”

Willie’s Funny Fan Interaction
In this same interview, Willie recalled one of the funniest interactions he’s ever had with a fan.
“He said, ‘Can I get a picture?'” Willie recalled. “I told him I was in a really big hurry and I had to leave, and he’s pressing me and I said, ‘I’ve really got to go.’ And he pulled his wallet out, and he just reached in. He didn’t even count it. He just pulled out a wad of cash and stuck it in my hand and said, ‘Do you still have to go?’
“And I said, ‘No, I guess I can wait a minute,’” he added with a laugh. “That was one of the funniest. That was the guy who gave me like 100 bucks.”
