Sabbatical from marriage not bad idea, says Emma Thompson
Actress Emma Thompson drew parallels between real life and the plot of her new comedy "The Love Punch" and said that she's all for taking a year out of a marriage if it is "done properly".
The 54 year-old, currently promoting "The Love Punch", told The Telegraph that she is advocate of "taking a break from each other", reports contactmusic.com
"I wonder whether this isn't the way forward for a lot of married couples? You look at it and think that maybe every marriage should have a kind of a sabbatical, that couples should be forced to take a break from each other every so often, if just for a year or so," she said.
"It's actually not a bad idea. You need to go off perhaps, although not to be with other people. I think that would make things very difficult: All that free love stuff has been tried and tested and doesn't work and has been proven to make relationships very, very tricky.
"But I'm sure a sabbatical could work if it were done properly," she added.
