Judi about marriage: "We both married young. And then we were both married again. And it took us until this stage in life to realize and find the person that we eventually wanted to grow old with ... "Some people chose not to get married again. Rudy and I believe very strongly in the institution of marriage I’d honestly like to say we both got it right the first time around .. you know for whatever variety of those reasons were we happened to both be married to lovely people... But, that was not to be...and so what that has done for us is I think it makes you appreciate marriage a little bit more."
Judi about learning from the past: "“Hopefully if you learn anything from being married before, it's that you learn from your mistakes. We look forward to growing old together."
Judi about the romantic side of Rudy: "What most people don't know is that Rudy's a very, very romantic guy; we love watching Sleepless in Seattle ... We're very lucky to have found each other at this stage of our lives ... I'm happy making him happy, making a happy home. The limelight never interested me, though I'll now use it to highlight charities and causes I believe in...But I certainly never sought it out ... One of the most remarkable things about my husband, who sleeps three or four hours a night, is his energy level and stamina. I truly believe that one of the keys to a successful marriage is not trying to change your partner. This is the person I fell in love with. And I married a man who loves to work, never takes time off, because if you like what you, you don't need to ... If you love somebody, you want to be with him."
Rudy: "The core of a really good relationship is being honest with each other. And, frankly, information like that [Judith's first marriage] is really relevant (only) between the two of us."
Judi about Rudy: "He's also a great listener, rather unusual for such a decisive action person, and very loving — never forgetting anything, obsessing over gifts, wanting to get everyone something they really like."
Judi on the value of marriage: "One of the things that Rudy and I have in common is we were both married three times before. At this stage in life, we believe in the institution of marriage. We appreciate the value of marriage."
Article concerning Andrew Giuliani and Rudy: "Andrew Giuliani told The Times that he and his father recently tried to reconcile after not speaking "for a decent amount of time." He attributed their problems to Judith, saying, "There's obviously a little problem that exists between me and his wife."
