She said that "The choice of a life partner is the single most important choice you'll make in your life, much of the joy you derive in your life, does hark back to who you choose to share this journey with. A lot of what I am today are a function of the life partner I was lucky to have alongside my journey. Sanjay and I, both alumni of IIM-A, are very different people. But we are not all that different either. We have very similar core values."

"When you are out there looking for a partner, look beyond their looks, their success, their style. The durability and strength of your relationship if not going to come from your partner's personality. It is going to come from their character, so remember to look well beneath the surface."

Sharma is married to Sanjaya Sharma, her batch-mate at IIM-A. Mr. Sanjaya Sharma, is the former CEO of Tata Interactive Systems. She has earned various awards and accolades in her credit and she also feels that a life partner’s support catalyses the pace of you career success.
