Durga puja stories

There is a durga puja in the campus with a wonderful idols of the goddess, the demon and the picture of Shiva. My foreign friend from France asked the Indian friend "what is the relationship between Durga and Shiva?"
Indian friend: "Initially they were husband and wife"
Foreign friend interupts: "they broke up then?"
Well, it will take him some time to understand that weddings and marriages of gods and goddesses are much more complicated than simple humans. God/goddess disintegrate, vow to become the husband's wife again in another reincarnation and stuff....
