As artists they discuss their work with each other but rarely collaborate.

It is defined as a socially and ritually recognized union of two people that establishes rights and obligations between them and their families. Somewhere in this definition are compatibility, commitment, fidelity, romance and most importantly, love. Who you choose as a spouse can be considered a mirror to yourself and a reflection and your morals and values. This is the foundation of marriage and over time this relationship ebbs and flows to a shared blurriness of experiences, emotions, feelings and memories. <br /> </span></div>
