“When he embarrasses him, he embarrasses you. I kick him hard enough in bed at night.”

When asked the same question earlier in 2011, she said:

“There is no magic to making marriage work. A marriage is never made in heaven‚ you make it what it is. If you love a person‚ it’s simply not enough. You must meet halfway‚ give and take‚ for the rest of your lives."

She also added, “we greet each other every morning and night with a kiss."

Desmond and Leah met when he was a student.

Leah describes him as the "stubborn headmaster’s son who ignored her as a young girl‚ and whom she chased in their college years‚" she added, “i still think he’s very good looking”.
