Healthy relationships are normally when each partner supports each other’s life aims; however there are times that your own needs may have to be put aside temporarily if the occasion demands.

Obviously, Sally Bercow wife of the Speaker of Britain’s House of Commons, John Bercow, thought otherwise – After wearing a sheet that makes her look like a “complete idiot” (her words) she demonstrated a total lack of understanding of what it takes to be in the role of partner to a political leader – male or female.

“I’m a personality” she said, “I’ve got ambitions of my own and it was just meant to be a bit of fun.”

Unfortunately for her, the British public and media didn’t see it that way, and the brand damage done to both her and her husband has become a non laughing matter and less fun than she originally imagined!
