In the name of Valentines Day and love we asked several couples some questions and this is what they had to say…First up Clare & Des.

Clare & Des both turned 51 this year. They have been married for 28 years and live in Berkshire with their two daughters.


 Clare’s answers 

What does he bring to the relationship?  Love, stability, understanding and protectiveness

 What about you could only he love? My feet

 In private I am? I’m Beyonce’s body double

 Who wears the trousers? Des, but I always tell him which ones to wear.

 What annoys you about him? He has selective hearing

 Describe yourself in three words? Thoughtful, affectionate and loyal

 First impression of him? Slick dapper and very handsome

 What do you argue you about? Our girls

 Your proudest moment? My wedding day, giving birth to two beautiful daughters and seeing our girls achieve so much

 When do you look your best? When I’m dolled up and ready to go out

 What is your biggest fear? I’m afraid I will die before my girls are settled into loving relationships of their own or of Des or the girls dying before me and leaving me heartbroken

 When did you know he loved you? I knew he loved me and really meant it, when he asked me to marry him.

 What have you learnt from each other? To be patient and considerate of each other. That love is enough.

 What does the future look like? Exciting and full of more proud moments and happy memories.

 His favorite part of my body is? My eyes

 What would you like to say to him?

I could not tell you if I loved you the first moment I saw you or if it was the second, third or even fourth, all I know is that the moment I saw you walking towards me I knew my life had changed forever. You always know how to make me feel special, sexy and attractive (even when I don’t feel it). Nothing I ask is ever too much trouble and I know I can sometimes ask a lot of you. Some people thrive on material possessions, but all that matters to me is that we have each other.  I love you with all my heart and my heart will be yours until the day I die.
