No marriage is perfect — including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban’s. According to In Touch, Nicole and her husband of nearly 12 years recently had a five-day visit to Marriage Quest, a private couples counseling retreat located in Cabot, VT. “Nicole and Keith went for an emergency stay,” an insider said of the pair. “It was an extremely emotional and testing few days.”

The couple, who share daughters Sunday, 9, and Faith, 7, “have been fighting constantly over Nicole’s incessant jealousy and need to control Keith on every level,” added the insider. The trip to Vermont marked their final attempt to patch things up. “It was Keith’s idea to visit the boot camp,” said the insider. The Lion actress resisted and only relented when Keith threatened to leave for good. “He gave her an ultimatum.”

But in Vermont, the pair were side by side as they hashed out their problems. “They addressed a range of issues, including emotional intimacy, and focused on the root of their problems as they learned to break down walls and start working on their issues rather than plastering over the cracks,” the insider explained.

Hopefully, they were able to work out all of their differences while at the retreat. It sounds like they both were willing to repair the damage in their marriage before it spiraled out of control. The two have been one of Hollywood’s longest-lasting couples, and hearts would break everywhere if their relationship ended in divorce.
