It is hard to find a perfect pair for yourself when you have to prioritize more on your professional career.
Lucky for Neera Tanden as she first met her husband before she grew up professionally, at the University of California, Los Angeles while she was working with Michael Dukakis, former Governor of Massachusetts in 1992.
However, after almost seven years of seeing each other, the 47-year-old political analyst tied her nuptials with her husband Benjamin Edwards, American writer and visual artist in 1999.
The love-in-first-sight couple share even stronger bond after marriage and have broadened their family with the addition of two children; Jaden and Alina.
With a career in hand, Neera naturally finds it hard to give time to her family but, at the same time, she is fortunate enough as her husband has always been supportive of her.
