“I was very nervous about the impact it would have on my family or my marriage, not particularly my career at the time,” she says. “And so I think I decided early on to change as little as possible.”

She continued to work three days a week while the couple maintained their children in the same schools as before.

I think I was kind of scared that you’d come out the other side and suddenly have no friends.”

She “did what was expected of me” as the PM’s wife, but no more. “I would say the minimum,” she added.
