Her philosophy on marriage:
“I believe you have the right to love who you want to love and be treated equally. I have been married for 17 years and have two courageous children. After having spent some time being a single mother, I understand the joy in finding your soulmate. My advice to couples is to wake up each day asking yourself, how can you make your partner’s life better today. Marriage only works if you work at it. “
