Sometimes, the press can run away with a story before there's any real evidence that what they're writing is true. While this is the nature of the fast-paced world that we live in, it can be problematic - particularly for those that the news stories are about. And one story that was based on rumors and lies was about Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard.
Last week, the internet was buzzing with information about the fact the pair's marriage was in trouble. The couple have long been internet favorites, and many were distraught at the news. But, never fear - the couple are still going strong, and have the perfect response to online nay-sayers.
Kristen Bell is one of television's best-loved actresses.The comedy star is well known for roles on Veronica Mars, Gossip Girl, and The Good Place.
She's married to Dax Shepard.Shepard is a multitalented actor, writer, director, and podcast host.
The pair met in 2007.

They're known for being the definition of couple goals.They're incredibly cute together, and can often be spotted in adorably intimate public displays of affection.
They've always avoided becoming a boring married couple.They're very open about how they want to remain young and fun, even as they grow old together. Adorable.
But that isn't to say that they make it look easy.What's fantastic about Shepard and Bell is how open they are about how much work it takes to make a successful marriage.
The couple are open about both marriage and parenthood.And, though they make both look like great fun, they also admit that it's not always rosy. In fact, the pair have admitted to being enrolled in couple's therapy to make sure that they make it work.
But make it work, they do.And talking about the difficulties of marriage and parenthood only serve to normalize these issues and make everyone feel a bit better about their imperfect lives.
Shepard has also been open about other struggles.
And Bell has always been supportive of his journey.Having an addict partner is never easy, so we take our hats off to Bell for constantly standing by Shepard's side. Honestly, these two are just the best.
In fact, Bell is incredibly supportive of Shepard.
It doesn't seem like anything could bring the pair down.
And once such source reached out to Shepard this week.
Not only is this clearly an invasion of privacy...But it also seems to be the vaguest story ever ...? They're having troubles, because of Dax's past substance abuse issues, but they're also fine? Huh?
Shepard gave the picture the perfect caption.

But then things got even better.

But she offered him a helpful solution.
