Tom was asked whether he had seen himself marrying so early in life. He responded, “Not at all. If you’d have told me five years ago I’d have been, ‘Pff, yeah, sure.’ But it just felt right. Within the first month we’d talked about it.”
11 Before settling in London, they were having a long-distance relationship

“Our relationship is far from perfect. We have really tough times and struggles. For example we went long distance for a very, very, long time: he was in LA, I was living in London. We would spend sometimes five weeks apart. And it’s something that was really, really tough and we’ve had to make massive and dramatic changes in our lives in order to be able to live together and see each other all the time. So it’s not all plain sailing,” Tom told.
