'The whole story came out that night,' Ms Plibersek said.

'Not only about going to jail, but about his drug addiction. He was going to three Narcotics Anonymous meetings a week in those days.'

Mr Coutts-Trotter was thrown in jail in 1984 for conspiracy to import heroin from Thailand after becoming hooked on the drug as a teenager. He served three years.

He was 24-years-old when he met a 20-year-old Ms Plibersek at university.

The pair had their first date at a Thai restaurant on Oxford Street.

Mr Coutts-Trotter revealed that he wanted Ms Plibersek to know about his chequered past from the get-go.

His honesty paid off as the pair revealed they fell immediately in love with each other on that night.

Mr Coutts-Trotter was immediately smitten by the 'beautiful and super smart' Ms Plibersek. 

Ms Plibersek described her husband as 'funny' and said she never feared he would relapse because of his disciplined nature.

The pair admitted they had their couple's quarrels and that Ms Plibersek even tried to get out of the car on Anzac Bridge during a heated debate about electricity privatisation.

While the couple are completely open with each other they respect their boundaries when it comes to work.

Ms Plibersek revealed there are some aspects of their office life they cannot share with each other.
