The high-profile backbencher told of how she is anxious about looking good for her new husband, 58-year-old music manager Peter Mensch.
“I think it’s an act of love for a husband and wife who have committed to each other to keep themselves looking as good as they can,” [UK Tory MP Louise Mensch] said in an interview over the weekend. “I love him and I dress up for him. Not in a Barbie doll way, but … he lifts weights and works out, and is absolutely stunningly gorgeous. My palms still sweat with adrenaline whenever he walks into a room.”
Her tips for a happy married life come the week after Kirstie Allsopp, the TV presenter and domestic goddess, recommended that women cook their husbands a meal before attempting to talk about feelings.
Mrs Mensch joined the debate about conjugal bliss by speaking openly about staying attractive for her husband, who lives in New York and manages bands such as Metallica and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
