The Love Talk Show and Love Talk Live now have new presenters: Luke and Raphaela Castro! We had the opportunity to catch up with the new hosts and asked them a few questions about their relationship and experiences as a couple.
Love Talk Team: What has remained the same in your relationship since you first started dating?
Luke: The sense of humour between us is something we have kept going since the very beginning. We like having fun together and we’ve always enjoyed each other’s company. We still make each other laugh, and sometimes when we are together we do act childish, but not in public.
LTT: As a couple, how do you ensure your relationship is always getting stronger?
Luke: Communication! A lot of couples don’t last forever because they lack good communication in their relationship. We give each other the chance to speak and we listen to one another. Giving up is not an option for us. We don’t turn our back on each other; we face everything together and this makes us stronger.
LTT: What is your most embarrassing memory from when you first started dating?
Raphaela: When we first started dating, I was very shy and insecure and on maybe our second date he brought me an ice-cream. As I was eating it, the ice cream fell on to my dress and we had to find a gas station so that I could clean myself up!
LTT: What is your favourite thing about your husband/wife?
Raphaela: One of my many favourite things about him is his serious demeanour – it creates an air of mystery. It was the first thing about him that caught my attention and as I got to know him, I saw many layers to this part of him. I like that he is serious about the things that are important to him and I find assurance in that.
Luke: Amongst many other things, one of my favourite things about her is that she is very reliable. I don’t have to worry about certain things – she reminds me of the things I forget about and she can handle a lot.
LTT: What was the easiest thing to adjust to when you first started dating?
Luke: When you’re dating, everything is fantastic – it’s too early to adjust. We don’t feel like we had to adjust to anything whilst dating. Adjustments come when you get married.
Raphaela: Although, one thing I loved adjusting to was that I got to see him every week.
