It seems that Anand who bring his wife - Aruna photo left - [ he always bring his wife anywhere actually :) ], seems to have a good time so far. It's probably debate able whether bringing your wife... or spouse [i have to be fair to Kosteniuk or Polgar's trio :) ] will give good effect to any sportsman ..or sportswomen ...even England football team had problem regarding this issue in the past . However as a married man ( i confess!) ...your wife/spouse do increase your confidence...especially if both haven't seeing ( or hear) each other for quite some time! What do you think?
