8:07 am
>> securing. >> who he is. >> i am, perhaps. honestly, it's all we've ever known. it's all we've ever known, chris was in law school when we got married. so from the beginning, i was paying school tuition bills and working. so it was kind of natural. it's fought something we thought about or ever really cared about. >> never cared about? >> never cared about. >> so i'm proud of her. i think the end of it is, the football, if gender stuff aside, she's my partner. i'm proud of her. >> a lot of men don't see it that way. >> i don't know why, it's a grea example for our daughters in particular. your worth does not come from who you marry. your worth comes from who you are. for our sons, i think for them to see this kind of false macho about you have to be the bigger bread winner. you have to be, you know the bigger presence soldier the way it has to be. >> you have been together since
