It wasn’t long after Rosa first set eyes on Irv that she told her friends that she was claiming him as hers. Irv didn’t know that, of course. He was the new student in their small Catholic high school in rural Connecticut and was busy learning everyone’s names and making new friends. But there was one particularly beautiful face that he did notice right away as well. So when that energetic, gorgeous girl asked him for a ride home after school one day, he happily obliged. Rosa was so distracted by simply being in a car with the guy she had a huge crush on, that she actually got them lost on the way back to her house. Irv was confused, but when he looked over at Rosa he couldn’t help but smile. They laughed and, in that afternoon, they both saw the potential for something more.
After high school, they went their separate ways for college but did keep in touch. Once college was over, they both could see that this was the perfect time for them. They were ready to start their careers, pursue their passions, and there was nothing else they wanted more than to be by each other’s side through it all. Besides being a ridiculously good-looking couple, they are also a perfect match for one another. They balance each other out, push one another to be better and just plain make each other deliriously happy. When Irv proposed on the beach in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, Rosa didn’t hesitate for a second when she gave her answer. Of course she would marry him. Now she has a ring on her finger that lets the whole world know what she had known so many years before: he was meant to be hers. And he couldn’t be happier.
