A lot has been said and written about cheating in a relationship. There have been surveys on the internet and stories of infidelity shared by people on social media. Not just physical, but there are several types of cheating that people experience in a relationship and it is the most painful and devastating ordeal for a couple to go through. On experiencing infidelity, it makes people wonder what went wrong and why it happened. However, there’s no logic to validate infidelity in a relationship. The 90s' heartthrob and model-turned marathoner, Milind Soman is often questioned for his 26-year age gap with wife, Ankita Konwar and this time, he was asked if having a much younger wife lessens the chances of cheating in a relationship.

Before we move on to Milind Soman’s reply, let’s give you a quick recap of his relationship with Ankita Konwar. It was in 2018 when Ankita and Milind had exchanged wedding vows in a traditional Maharashtrian marriage ceremony. This was followed by a barefoot wedding at Santiago de Compostela, Spain. For the Maharashtrian ceremony, Milind and Ankita had twinned in white and golden coloured ensembles. For the white ceremony too, Milind and Ankita had picked colour-coordinated outfits. It’s been close to three years since their wedding but even today, Ankita and Milind are questioned about the huge age gap between them. But it is commendable how they handle the questions!
In an interview with Rediff.com, Milind Soman was asked, “Are chances of staying loyal stronger when you have a younger partner?” referring to his 26-year-age difference with wife, Ankita Konwar. Milind replied, "I think it has to do with the person, and what is important to you. The relationship is not about sex really, it's about the relationship itself. It is something that is satisfying. I don't think sex is all that important, it's the relationship that is important. The closeness is important. The warmth is important. The sharing is important. If you don't have that in a relationship, it's not one. You might have great sex, but it's not a relationship. I think people stray when they don't get the emotional support they need to lead their life."
To mark their second barefoot wedding anniversary on July 12, 2020, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had wished each other on their respective social media handles with lovely posts. While Milind posted a picture from their wedding and a glimpse of how they had celebrated, Ankita shared the same selfie of their celebration. Milind had captioned his post as “July 2018, a white dress under a waterfall in the middle of a Spanish forest, just like you wanted @ankita_earthy ! Its 2 years today, so happy anniversary celebration with a run, OBVIOUSLY waiting for the next challenge”, Ankita had written, "We had our dream barefoot wedding in Spain, on this very day exactly 2 years back! Started our celebrations by running a 10k in the rain this morning. What a beautiful start to a beautiful day. #ultreia my love #togetherforever #foreverisnow #love #runners."

In an interview with The Telegraph, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had revealed many astonishing facts about their relationship and their courtship days. Milind had revealed in the interview that it was the 26-year generation gap that had attracted her towards him. But were Ankita’s parents okay about it? The missus had said, “My mom was a little surprised.” To which, Milind had continued, “Her mother is younger than me.” Ankita had balanced the same by saying, “By two years. She always liked him as a personality, but she was a little worried. ‘Are you sure?’ she asked me.”
Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had felt an ‘instant’ connection when they had met for the first time. But what was Ankita’s first reaction about Milind? She had stated, “I was with AirAsia at that time. I had just come in from Malaysia because AirAsia was setting up in India at that time. So, I was one of the 16 people to come here and help set up the company. I saw him and thought would go and say ‘hi’ to him, but he was so busy on the phone. At the nightclub, my friend pushed me to go say hi. I don’t like nightclubs and I haven’t been to one after that. I don’t like crowded places. I had that urge. I had to go the club that day.” Milind too, had added, “She had seen me at the hotel before we met at the nightclub. We were staying in the same hotel. We went back to that nightclub last year. It was afternoon and it was shut. We just went to see... Oh this is where we met!" (Also Read: Aamir Ali's Pictures With 'Mystery Girl' Makes Fans Curious If She's Estranged Wife, Sanjeeda Shaikh)
