In a protracted publish detailing their relationship, the creator of ‘The Zoya Factor‘ wrote: “Sunday for me is sleeping late. For him it’s getting up early, and going to church. I’m good at math. He’s good at history. He loves country music. I prefer heavy metal. He’s maniacal about fitness. I’m uh..not.”
She additionally shared that whereas “falling in love is super easy”, “staying together (for almost 27 years now) is not”.
“That’s true for every marriage — not just the so-called ‘mixed’ ones. Because marriages are always mixed. It’s never really your religions that are an issue — but rather, your values, your priorities, your moral compass, your parenting philosophy, your stand on political and gender issues, whether you want the AC on or off at night…” the creator shared.

“Being there for each other. Passing the kids like batons during a relay race in those early years when career and babies are both on a rapid growth spurt. Being each other’s loyal cheerleader, as well as brutal critic.”
The creator concluded saying, “At the end of the day, the essential ingredients for a marriage-that-works are the same as the essential ingredients for a country-that-works. Love. Respect. And Tolerance.”
The publish comprised three footage of the couple, sharing their area and completely satisfied moments with one another.
