When it comes to Hollywood couples, Gwen Stefani and longtime beau Blake Shelton are the sweetest in the game. “[They] are in a great place and act like loved-up teenagers, it’s so cute! Their nights out together really help keep the relationship alive,” a source exclusively gushed to Life & Style.

“The couple spent around five hours at Craig’s restaurant drinking and enjoying the food with a bunch of friends! They tried to be subtle as they dined, but you couldn’t miss them, Blake was being pretty loud, whereas Gwen was acting more reserved,” the source continued.

D’aw, isn’t young(ish) love just grand? The question remains, however, when the heck are Gwen, 49, and Blake, 42, going to walk down the aisle?! Well, as it happens, the A-list pair has one major hurdle to overcome before saying “I do.” According to Us Weekly, Gwen “began the formal process” to have her 14-year union with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale annulled by the Catholic church.

“Gwen’s religion has always been extremely important to her, and Blake is completely supportive of this,” a source told the publication. For those of you who may not know, the Catholic church doesn’t recognize divorce. Therefore, unless Gwen has her marriage annulled, she and the country crooner will be unable to exchange vows in a church.

Ultimately, whereas divorce acknowledges that the marriage took place, getting an annulment means your courtship was “invalid” a.k.a technically didn’t happen. Thankfully, once the annulment matter is taken care of, we have ~no doubt~ that the lovebirds will have a beautiful life together.

After all, Gwen and Blake are constantly swooning over one another on social media and during awards shows. Most recently, the “Hollaback Girl” singer couldn’t stop smiling during her man’s performance at the Country Music Awards. In conclusion: Gwen and Blake will always be our ultimate #RelationshipGoals.
