What is trust?
Gérard - It’s believing the other, systematically. If she tells me the sky is green, it’s green. I trust her.
Marielle - It’s never considering that the other one is lying to you. Simple as that. Then, the reality…
"If she tells me the sky is green, it’s green"
What does it mean to be a man / a woman?
Gérard - Being a man is being perfectly responsible and respectful. It’s enough, there’s no need for anything else.
Marielle - Being a woman is a way to approach life, with a lot of sensitivity, psychology, this little extra thing that men don’t have. Without playing the feminist card, we do have a particular sensitivity.
What do you hide from others? Or from yourselves?
Gérard - If I’m feeling pain, I don’t show it. I’m not someone who cries.
Marielle - You don’t show your sadness. The things I don’t show are my most intense feelings, because… it’s modesty. I hide some weaknesses to myself, things that belong in the past and that I prefer to keep buried.
What do you believe in? When everything’s falling apart, what’s left?
Gérard - Marielle. And chocolate.
Marielle - Love. Our relationship. Because we’re really good together, so we take our strengths from each other. Music too, small things in life.
What are you grateful for?
Marielle - I am grateful as long as I’ve got health. It’s essential. We can love, work, travel. As long as you’ve got a good health, you can do anything.
Gérard - No, I’m grateful for every day that goes by. I’m hopeful for tomorrow. I am grateful to see my daughters today. Tomorrow, it’ll be something else but today, it’s this.
