On April 29, an interview with a public figure, writer and life coach Irina Khakamada was published on the international TV channel RTVI. In the Legend program, she spoke about the role of women in modern society and her partner marriage.
According to Irina, successful women a priori attract more attention, which is often used against themselves.
- If you are a strong woman, attractive, wealthy, self-sufficient and still a little star, that is, a public person, everyone, everyone, sometimes even close friends, tries to exploit you. You need to keep your distance at all times.
Irina Khakamada and her husband are in a partner marriage. A partner marriage is a union of two free and active individuals with big life goals. Both he and she have an interesting job with a stable income that gives independence and autonomy. Each of the spouses can exist without the other, but at the same time each of them contributes to the relationship, regardless of gender roles. Many, including Irina's friends, try to copy this model, but fail. Why this happens and what stereotypes do people face when they hear about this format of relationships, Irina shared in an interview:
- When people hear the phrase "partner marriage", for some reason everyone hears only "partner marriage" and skips the "marriage". A partner marriage is the same family and in this family there is a certain ball where kindred spirits live on the same wavelength, who love each other and this does not apply to sex.
In relations with her current husband, Irina notes that there are no requirements, the main thing is the recognition of the fact that they are with each other forever, but in partnership:
- I would never agree to live in a family for the sake of a family. I have self-realization in the first place.
Irina spoke about her principles of relationship with her husband:
“On the male side, I am a good partner: if I get sick, I will cure, if the money is gone, I will earn money and cover my debts. I never give up the weak, I am such a samurai. The feminine trait in marriage is that I am an ordinary woman: you have to take care of me, pat me on the back and bring tea when I watch a movie."
