John and Dorothy

Where did you first meet? 

John and Dorothy

We were living in Kershaw apartments when our friends introduced us. We started dating while we were on a co-op work term together.

What did you do on your first date?  

It was unplanned - we were working late on an inventory count and went out to dinner afterwards.

What is your fondest memory of your time at UW?

Graduating! And going to Oktoberfest with our friends.

How soon after graduation did you marry? 

We moved abroad together in 1996 and got married in 1997.

How long have you been married?

23 years.

Do you have any marriage advice you’d like to share?

An equal partnership is the foundation for everything else. And a little mutual attraction doesn’t hurt either…  ;)
