Peter Mygind Remains Lise Mühlhausen’s Husband, 27 after their Marriage
It’s no secret that after a few years or even a few months of getting married, most entertainers or celebrities easily find their relationships falling apart. Surprisingly, Peter and Lise are an exception to this norm.
Following their story, the pair first connected at a party over 3 decades ago. Peter was in his third year of theater school while Lise Mühlhausen was most likely a psychology or communication student. The pair began dating shortly after their meeting and Lise took in after just 5 weeks of relationship. The then-young lovers decided to move in together when the pregnancy was 8 months old. Moving on, Lise and Peter officially got married on the 10th of August 1996. Since then the couple has managed to hold on to their promise of ’till death do us path.’
Nonetheless, the husband and wife have admitted that they experienced several challenges along the way. According to Peter, he and Lise had slums and crises and they have been in a couple of family therapy but he never doubted the love his wife has for him. He further said that he and his wife have been good at looking inward and this is one of the secrets to their long-lasting relationship.
Similarly, the couple has admitted that their marriage was hit by several health challenges. Notably, Peter has had several blood clots and only survived the last one because a doctor happened to pass by when he collapsed in February 2015. After a short while, their world was rocked again when Lise collapsed on a certain holiday. After a long sick leave and a course of investigation, she was diagnosed with autoimmune encephalitis. Despite all of these, Lise and Peter are grateful that they are only growing stronger.
