The most important building blocks of marriage are respect and understanding.” She did, however, share her feelings for her husband and said, “Having fun together, having a good time, sharing joy, enthusiasm and of course sadness together; laughing together, traveling, spending quality time; to be able to meet each other; complementing and nurturing each other. There is always love in what I say. It’s hard to have a great time without falling in love. “

Başak drew attention with her words. She is the person who balances me in life. I learned to love Başak in a different way every day. Because loving too much is not enough. Loving a person begins when you strive for her happiness. When I feel the happiness in her eyes, my stomach is full. This is such a thing.”
