Karen walker, a bottle with its cap
Human is a social creature, means that they need a partner to help and share each other's burden in life whether as a friend or life partner or a little bit of both. Karen walker( click here ) is really lucky to have someone in her life not only as her best friend but also as her life mate. She has been happily married for more than two decades with her husband, Mikhail Gherman. Just like any ordinary marriage life, her marriage life has its own up and down. There's a time the couple argues but there's also a time the couple relaxes and enjoys their tea together.
Mikhail Gherman or mostly known as Mikhail isn't only Karen walker's other half but also her co-partner and owner of her fashion business. She describes Mikhail as a creative genius while she is intellectually a genius. They felt this chemistry from the moment they met each other about 20 years ago when she was still 17 and he was 21. Up until now, they fill each other's weaknesses and help one another, but there's also a time when they both fight like cat and dog. If that happened, mostly, Designer Karen Walker will sit impassively and let Mikhail do the talking. It can be interpreted as Mikhail become controlling and Karen being, a bit aloof, like her chowchow dog, Turkey.
Unlike her blunt, cautious and very serious attitude, her husband is sensitive and obsessive. Mikhail has the delicate and artistic temperament (AKA a little bit eccentric). He means art like he means business and always knows how to come out with creative ideas. Mostly he gets his ideas about art from his surroundings. For example, there was a time when he went to a funeral and saw really cool guys with their Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses with their tears falling down. That image stayed for a long time in his brain and he re-created that image into creative ideas for the autumn campaign. Just like Karen walker often says, Mikhail is truly a creative genius man.
Even though Mikhail is a creative genius person, he is also a forgetful one. There are many times he loses his keys and locked out of his workroom which he always blames Karen for the lost of his keys. Those are just one of the things they mostly fight about, but they never fight about trivia things like putting out the rubbish or who left the socks on the floor. Karen walker tells the reason why. She says that it's always Mikhail's socks (they both have different kind of socks) that scatter on the floor. It's so obvious that they don't have to have an argument about whose socks are that.
No marriage couple is perfect and that also applies to Karen walker's marriage life. Both Mikhail and Karen might have their own weaknesses, but by focusing on the positive things that each other has, their marriage stays a very long time up until now. Now, the couple had been blessed by the presence of a daughter and that makes their happiness even fuller. If it is illustrated, Mikhail and Karen are just like a bottle with its cap. Perfectly match for each other and need one another.
