Why did Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth decide to get married?

The California wildfires that destroyed the couple’s Malibu home. Miley told Vanity Fair: “What Liam and I went through together changed us. I’m not sure without losing Malibu, we would’ve been ready to take this step or ever even gotten married, who can say? But the timing felt right and I go with my heart. No one is promised the next day, or the next, so I try to be ‘in the now’ as much as possible.”

Miley also appeared on the Howard Stern Show, where she expressed how grateful she was to Liam for saving their animals from the fire. “So actually, Liam- I’ve never loved him more for this, he was so incredible. He got all the animals out in his truck…”

Miley continued by telling Stern exactly how thankful she was. “He got a lot of action for saving the animals…We had to make that he knew I was very thankful.”
