Walkley Award Winner Caroline Overington Shared Some Details About Her Married Life With Husband Martin Overington
The One Who Got Away writer Caroline Overington is living a blissful married life with her longtime partner and husband, Martin Overington.
She has been married to Martin for more than 27 years.
Achieving such longevity in love is not written in everyone's fate. But Caroline's dedication and love towards her husband, kids, and the whole family has made it possible. Talking about her marriage she stated in an interview,
"I’m thinking everyday what can I do to make [my husband’s] life better today? And that’s the basis of any marriage. It’s about the other person."
Love is not about you. Love is about them. How can I improve their life, make their day a little better?"
She reportedly gave her views about love and connection:
"You don’t realize how rare it is until you’re one of those people [who’ve been married for a long time]. A number of people are definitely getting divorced. To me, it’s always been very important to work at it and to make sure that we hang in there. That’s important. I feel like all the old clichés are true."
The journalist never thought twice explaining her sex life during the interview. She said that maintaining a perfect balance between the family life, love along with sex helps a couple with every step in their life.
"Sex is not about you. It’s about them. It’s about what you can do for them and how you can connect together in a physical, loving way."
No doubt, the duo is living a blessed life with their children- 18-year-old twins Michael Overington and Chloe Overington.
'It’s the little, big things that make any relationship work and Caroline says if they’re not adding up in your own relationship, it’s time to rethink.'
All in all, it's no doubt that the journalist is living a happy life that we all dream of. Mazel Tov to them!
