Following a difficult divorce and deep need for some soul-searching, Elizabeth Gilbert embarked on a journey of self-discovery that she later chronicled in her best-selling book Eat, Pray, Love. During her trek, the author met and fell in love with a Brazilian-born man named José Nunes, who she married less than a year after her memoir became a best-seller. Eat, Pray, Love fans read intimate details of their romance, but what many don't know is how a single comment made Gilbert even more excited to marry her husband.
"My husband has a line that I always quote. It's not all why I married him, but it's a lot of why I married him," Gilbert says in the above video. "He said, 'A woman's place is in the kitchen...with her feet up, drinking a glass of wine, watching her husband cook her a meal.'"
