KEEP THINGS FRESH

Soumya Roy, 31, has been with her hus­band, Anish, 35, for 14 years. “Anish and I knew each other for four years, be­fore we got mar­ried in 2003. I think the big­gest se­cret of our suc­cess is that we’ve never let the spark in our re­la­tion­ship die. Whether it’s small ges­tures like cook­ing his favourite meal, or him plan­ning sur­prise dates for me, what makes it spe­cial for us is that even af­ter all these years, our re­la­tion­ship feels fresh. We’ve also come up with an un­spo­ken list of rules that we stick with—re­spect­ing your part­ner is sacro­sanct, as is spend­ing Sun­day night to­gether. That’s our spe­cial thing, and we never com­pro­mise on it. Of course, like any cou­ple, we have our share of ar­gu­ments, but we never let things reach a stage where they get out of hand. Say­ing sorry is never an is­sue be­tween us—even if he’s the one in the wrong, I quickly apol­o­gise and get over things.”
