Interview provided by Zoe, mother of two beautiful daughters.
Katrin: Tell us where and how you met.
Zoya: We met at a party with mutual friends. And the husband "fuse" on me immediately, but I rejected the signs of his attention for several months. He now tells everyone that he has melted my heart with his hot heart)))
Katrin: How many have you got together since the day you met?
Zoya: Last month, eight years have passed since we started living together. We met not for a long time, about three or four months. But then it seemed such a long period ... Of course, compared to eight years, four months is a very short time.
Katrin: How did you understand that you want to be together? Why did you choose him / her?
Zoya: Zhenya conquered me with his perseverance and perseverance. I realized that this is the person who will do everything to make me happy. And he did!
Katrin:Have you ever quarreled, and did you get to partings?
Zoya: Well, not to quarrel, so shouted at each other. More often than me. But all this is not serious, not really. So that with huge insults, was not even once.
Katrin:The secret of how you put up?
Zoya: The surest way to reconciliation - in bed.
Katrin:How did the appearance of children (if any) affect your relationship?
Zoya: We already have two children. The birth of the first daughter slightly alienated us from each other. And by the birth of the second we have become accustomed to their parental responsibilities and performed them together in harmony. After all, children are a huge step into the unknown. I thought it would be like in a movie (everything is fine and calm, children in beautiful dresses with bows on their heads), but suddenly it turned out that the lack of sleep for several months is very tiring, there is a feeling of irritation for everyone and everything. From this state it is better to quickly get out. I am glad that the girls have already grown up a bit and it became easier in this regard.
Katrin:Have you had hard times in your life, and how did you overcome them together?
Zoya: There were times not very easy in material terms, but so that the really hard ones were not, there wasn’t. All the financial side we have on her husband, and I - the keeper of the hearth.
Katrin:How to keep the relationship so far? What helped you?
Zoya: The husband always makes concessions, no matter what I ask. And I got up at night for my daughters, and helps around the house. I almost never read it again. This is his quality, I think it is very important.
Katrin:Did jealousy take place in a relationship? If so, how did you deal with it?
Zoya: No, there is no jealousy.
Katrin:What about passion?
Zoya: At the very beginning of the relationship was something similar. And now, without her, living well, calmly
Katrin:What is love for you?
Zoya: Probably mutual trust and friendship, willingness to make concessions.
Partnerships can not infringe on someone, it is necessary to respect equality. Yes, a woman can dominate the kitchen, in the financial field - a man. But when there is a joint agreement on important issues, when the opinion of the other is as important as one’s own, truly long-term relationships are built.
