Si­mon says se­duc­tion keeps mar­riage alive

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY TV -

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.
