Speaking of the early days of their relationship. Rael said: "We met through some mutual friends, and then she invited me for a day in parliament. As far as first dates go it was certainly an unusual one, but I’ve always been interested in politics so I went along with it.
“I thoroughly enjoyed it and we agreed to meet up again. We had our first ‘proper’ date a few weeks later and it all took off from there."
