We remember during their wedding thanksgiving, the Governor had this to say about his wife. Erm…Gov, TMI!
I can boldly tell all of you that I was a very principled man during my first marriage. I didn’t succumb to the worldly pleasures of this lustful environment, even though I had lots of opportunities. And it was this principled sobriety that made me fish for a virgin wife. I can boldly say to you all that I was the first man to know her and initiated her into the worldly ways.

She is very humble, she appreciates the nature of my job and life that I return home late, some times 3am. She understands my weaknesses, she is more or less the mother of the house, the one that has accepted to be the mother of my children.
I am happy that all my children are at home with her and accept her as their mother even though she is not old enough to be their mother. She has accepted to fill that gap.
So lovely to see him appreciating his wife!
