‘We only fight when I want to’: Genelia Deshmukh talks about her eternal bond with Riteish Deshmukh

It’s been nearly nine years since Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh tied the knot. The couple entered marital bliss in 2012 after a courtship of a decade. They are blessed with two sons – Riaan born in 2014 and Rahyl born in 2016. Riteish and Genelia fell in love while shooting for their debut film, Tujhe Meri Kasam which released in 2003.

Now during an interaction with Pinkvilla, Genelia was asked about how they keep the bond going after being together for almost two decades. The actor stated, “When we were dating each other, we dated each other for 10 years and people would ask us how did you manage to date for 10 years, and we had no answer. We have heard the same during the relationship, marriage, and then have kids too. I think the thing about me and Riteish is that we communicate because we feel that in most relationships it is missing.”

She further said, “We all have moments in our relationships where we perhaps have an argument or moments where we cannot live without each other, it is part of life. We also know our priorities and let go of things that are not so important.”

Genelia also praised her husband by saying, “I have to complement Riteish for that because he doesn’t make any issue. We don’t fight, we only fight when I want to fight. He won’t get into the nitty-gritty of issues, sometimes I feel I want that to happen because I am a different person. But he lets me be. I think in all of that, we found the rhythm of communication. Initially, we would not communicate our issues at all, but later I wanted that to happen so that we know why we are upset and it doesn’t come back again and those kinds of things help in our relationship. Plus, we try and keep the kids involved in our lives, we travel together most times.”
