Key factors that separate the struggling from the uber successful are the ability to create, cultivate and develop successful relationships. Priyanka and Nick Jonas could easily be considered as one of the examples. The couple, which had confirmed their engagement in August with a ‘roka’ ceremony, is now planning to take their relationship to the next level with a grand wedding in India.
PeeCee, who recently celebrated her bridal shower, opened up on her relationship ahead of her wedding with Jonas, 26. Priyanka was quoted as saying by the People magazine that respect for each other in a relationship is vital. The actor believes it is this key ingredient that worked for her and fiancé, singer Nick Jonas.
“Truly this is what worked for me; he has to be someone who respects you. By that, I don’t mean makes coffee for you, not that. But someone who respects the hard work you put into your life. Who respects that if his work is important, so is yours. Or if he makes choices that are important to him, so is your opinion. That’s respect, and that’s incredible to have,” the Baywatch star said.
The 36-year-old actor said she does not want women to settle for less than what they deserve in life. “Then everything is so easy because you give each other credit for your intelligence, you give each other the benefit of the doubt because you trust each other. There’s so much that comes out of that. I think don’t settle for less than that,” she reportedly said.
Further, in the conversation with People, Priyanka Chopra also talked about her Tiffany engagement ring. “I’ve always had a romantic fascination with Tiffany since I was a kid. It’s just so chic and classy and timeless. So somewhere I’d mentioned it to Nick that I wanted my ring to be a Tiffany ring and I think he remembered, and hence the ring and the relationship with Tiffany. It does play a very special role,” she said.
According to Priyanka, Nick made the first move in a very bold, yet incredibly stiff text message. “He texted me. The first time was a text and just saying, ‘I think we should connect,’ and whatever and that’s how we started talking,” Priyanka said.
Priyanka also mentioned that he’s the best partner ever. “Just being in the whole situation of finding somebody who can be a partner to you in so many more ways than one is amazing, so yes I’m very excited,” she said.
