She says that in her marriage, “somebody was always giving way more.” She’s had to make sacrifices, for example, to prioritize her husband’s career.

Speaking on the realities of marriage, Michelle said they were times she was 70% in and he was doing 30%, then she had to take her foot off her career gas pedal so as to let the relationship be dynamic.

She uttered that she feels bad when she sees young people giving up on their relationships because there are periods of hard.

In her words; “If I look over my marriage, If I were to judge it in year five or year ten there was never 50/50.Somebody was always giving way more. Someone always needed a different kind of thing. You have to evolve with it. And so, yeah, there were times when I felt I was 70% in and he was
doing 30%. Because of choices I made in terms of how I wanted our family to look. I had to take my foot off to my career gas pedal, never putting on the brake, but slowing up a little bit. Those are the natural compromisesthat are required.

And I feel bad when I see young people giving up on their relationships because there are periods of hard. So I think It’s important for us to be honest in those conversations, not to glamorize what a partnership feel like, because then young people quit too soon. They quit before they’ve really, you know, played out the full scenario.”
