When Bear Grylls returned from climbing Everest without delay, he proposed to his future wife, Shara.

Mr. Grylls spoke to GQ Magazine in 2016; the talented pair went for relationship counseling right after the marriage, despite most of the couple’s friends telling them they were nuts for marrying the person they met for a while. Edward added,

“We figured that if [marriage] was the most important thing we were ever going to do, we should do everything we could to stop it breaking in the first place.”

The famous author’s husband once wrote that communication is the key to any relationship and its essence to address concerns early, which should not lead to relationship rot.

During the couple’s marriage, Shara and her husband asked their guests to provide the best marriage advice. Mr. Grylls said that the best advice came from a fifty-year couple who suggested,

“Never stop holding hands.”

Together, the couple is blessed with three children, namely, Jesse Grylls, Marmaduke Mickey Percy Grylls, and Huckleberry Edward Jocelyne Grylls.
