Kate Langbroek has revealed that she once secretly broke up from husband Peter Allen Lewis.
The couple, who moved to Italy with their children in January, briefly called for their romance, suspecting it was 18 months in the 90s before they married in 2003.
Talk to podcast A life of greatness on Tuesday, the radio presenter, 53, revealed how the 44-year-old's tendency to control & # 39; tore them apart.
Kate Langbroek (behind) has revealed that she was once secretly divorced from husband Peter Allen Lewis (front) because of his tendency to & # 39; check & # 39; in a refreshingly honest interview
& # 39; It's in his DNA … Peter just had it in him, & # 39; she explained about the difficult time.
& # 39; And I like: & # 39; You know, you don't want to be with me, because that just becomes a life of misery for you and for me. It's going to make us both miserable. & # 39;
& # 39; But then we had a good conversation about it after we broke up – as probably a year and a half later – where he said & # 39; (being in control) does not make me feel good. I don't know why I'm trying to do it. It makes me feel terrible.
& # 39; And I said, "Well, why don't you stop? Because, in my experience, if I do something that makes you feel bad, it's best to stop it." And he also had to know what it was like to be without me. & # 39;
Problems: speaking to A Life Of Greatness podcast, Kate, 53, admitted telling Peter, 44, that you don't want to be with me, because that's just going to be a life of misery for you and me & # 39;

During the candid chat, Kate explained how the couple met during a trip to Vietnam, around 1991, but then they were dating other people.
& # 39; It was just a meeting and a preference & # 39 ;, said Kate, when she returned to her partner once back in Australia and reunited Peter with his soon-to-be fiancé.
But the sparks between them could not disappear when they returned to normal life.
& # 39; When we got home, it became very complicated and on paper it looked completely wrong, because he is nine years younger than me and he was at the university & # 39 ;, said Kate.
& # 39; And at that stage I had just started on television with a program called The Panel, so it just seemed completely wrong, but we just loved each other. & # 39;

Kate explained what drew her to Peter and said he was a & # 39; calm, beautiful person & # 39; is.
& # 39; He is very beautiful. And you know how sometimes people say they've met someone who makes them a better person? & # 39; she asked.
& # 39; He has made me a better person and I thought I was pretty good. & # 39;
Since then, the couple have welcomed four children, Lewis, 15, Sunday 14, Artie, 12 and Jannie, nine, and are happier than ever as they settle into their new lives in Italy.
