Olvasási idő: 3 perc

“A woman is like a teabag – only in hot water do you realize how strong she is.”

“There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all.”

“I like to be a free spirit. Some don’t like that, but that’s the way I am.”

“People who are truly strong lift others up. People who are truly powerful bring others together.”

Different quotations from different persons but they have something in common. These thoughts can be affiliated with strong women, outstanding wives whose life were not a walk in the park. They had to find the place of their own fame next to their prestigious husbands in power. Sometimes the discrepancy of interests concerning leverage interfered with the feelings and resulted in scandals or tragedy. However, other couples managed to overcome this difficulty, and their story got a happy ending. What may be the underlying factor that determines the success or the failure of a relationship? Is there a golden mean, or does it just glitter fabulously? Can we detect similar traits in the destinies?
