Simon says seduction keeps marriage alive
Baker (pictured) still feels he needs to ‘‘seduce’’ his wife. The Australian actor married another Aussie actor, Rebecca Rigg, in 1998 and they have three children together. The Mentalist star, 42, ensures his relationship stays on track by keeping the spark alive. ‘‘I need some challenges in love or I’m bored. Life is never the same with Rebecca because she keeps some mystery (around her),’’ he tells Gala France. ‘‘I still feel I have to seduce her to make sure she stays with me. In general, the problem in a relationship is when the couple stagnate. And I don’t have any routine with my wife.’’ Baker admits he used to argue with Rigg. However, he insists, that has only brought them closer. ‘‘As we get older we both got bored with the feuds. (I) finally understand that the woman is always right. There are still some frictions, of course, but we always try to take something positive from that,’’ he says.
