Best hashtag ever for a duo such as this? I think so.

In articles over the past few months, Williams and Gilbert have each sounded off on the difficulties of their relationship and the strain their rock star lifestyle places on it. But according to Gilbert, being able to sing it out makes them a better, stronger couple.
In an article in September with Fuse, he said, 

"Hayley and I, we'd been dating for six years, and we hit a rough patch in our relationship, and it was great, being able to get that out in these songs. It made things better for us, you know what I'm saying?"

Williams said in an interview with Spin magazine that touring is difficult, but, "That's our life. We always, always tour." She continued, "But honestly it's great. We both love what we do and we both support each other and love that we're doing the things that we enjoy."
After each of them made the announcement on their social media accounts, the megastar well wishes started to flow in, which included congratulations from Taylor Swift, Alex Williams from All Time Low, Katy Perry, Pete Wentz and many more.
