Speaking about his wife, Lawrence said, "I seek my mother's blessings by falling on her feet. Some people might take this the wrong way about what I'm about to say, but I also get blessings from my wife by falling on her feet. She will bless me from the bottom of her heart and her love will be visible. And, if something happens to me, she will become worried. If I'm laughing, you'll see her laughing too. If I get upset, she will be the same as well. She laid her faith in me."
Lawrence further stated, "After getting blessings from my mother and if I'm falling on my wife's feet, then imagine how positive must she be? So, I'm quite lucky. The month after I married her, I became a dance master. And, a hero after that and now I'm in this position. There's an saying that 'a prudent wife is from the Lord' and I'm so very thankful that she is my wife because there are times when I will feel like helping people during times of crisis. And, at such instances, she never questions me why am I giving away the money? I'll go and ask whether I should give the money or not and one such instance was the Kerala floods in 2018. I like to visit the Chottanikkara Bhagavathy Temple and going on the boat rides in Alleppey and, witness nature in all her glory. So, when the floods came, I told her that I was thinking about donating 1 crore to the state relief fund and she instantly supported me saying the people are suffering after losing their houses and that they must get all the help they need. The same can be said about the coronavirus pandemic when I extended a donation and she wholeheartedly supported me. Some people might say NO. Since my mother and my wife tell me to support others, I'm able to do all this."
