Carrie Underwood hearts being married to Mike Fisher, but keeps her personal life so private there are hardly any pictures of them together in public. Respect.

Opening up about her marriage in a rare interview, she tells People that given their careers, they haven’t been together too much since their summer wedding.

But, the country singer adds, marriage is a perfect fit for her.

Mike Fisher, a.k.a. the Luckiest Man Alive, wed Carrie July 10.

“Mike is the missing piece to my puzzle – he’s a few pieces,” the American Idol champion says of her NHL star husband. “He makes me a better person.”

While the winters in his native Canada can be rough (“I can’t do cute heels in the winter!”), they’re content to shuttle between Nashville and Ottawa homes.

“It’s not like we have office jobs where one of you can transfer!” Underwood says, then states the obvious by noting that “It’s not a conventional marriage.”

Still, Carrie says marriage is something for which she gives thanks, along with other blessings, like her dog Ace and her family. All together now: Awww!
