What we have works – Sunetra Sarker and husband will live apart half the week

The actress married her long-term partner partner earlier in November.

Ackley Bridge star Sunetra Sarker has revealed she and her new husband will continue to live separately for half of the time, saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

The actress, 45, tied the knot with her long-term partner Scott Carey earlier this month after dating for six years.

Sarker, who lives in Bristol with her 13-year-old son Noah from her first marriage and Carey, who lives in Kent with his two children, will remain living apart – spending half the week together.

She told Hello! magazine: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

“What we have works for everyone, no one’s missing out, our children get on well, no one’s being compromised.”

Sarker and company director Carey married in two ceremonies – one traditionally British, the other Indian – at the Matara Centre in the Cotswolds.

“Scott really wanted to merge our two cultures,” Sarker said.

The former Casualty actress told the magazine she didn’t make a final decision about her wedding gown – an off-white, tulle sleeveless dress by Maggie Sottero – until four days before her big day.

She said she walked into a bridal gown shop after having second thoughts about the first dress she had bought and said: “I’m getting married on Thursday – do you have anything?”

“I thought ,‘What am I doing? Have I gone mad?’” she said.
