On Working with Your Partner:

“Marc and I really do understand each other. We know each other’s hopes and dreams, we know each other’s strengths, we also know each other’s weaknesses, so in a way, we’re the best gauge of how we can be the best in everything that we do.”

On The Importance of Respect:

“You know, we respect each other, we respect each other’s opinions, and we love each other, more than anything.”

On How Working Together Strengthened Their Relationship:

“He wants me to be successful, I want him to be successful, he wants me to be happy, I want him to be happy, and all those things make for a very good combination in work, and in life.”

On How Their Relationship Was Fate:

“Yeah, I do believe in fate, I really do. And I believe in destiny and I believe that things are going to be what they’re gonna be and for whatever reason, we were meant to share this time together.”
