That’s why I want to marry you.’ Maybe that’s also part of what works great in my marriage. I still have my independence, but he likes it. I get a lot of respect from him.”

So you cannot stop until some of that is put out,’” she remembered to the publication. “So, he sort of really pushed me, like, ‘Get up on your feet and get out there.’ And he was right.”
