  • My parents met in college and have been married now for 35 years. This is the story of how they fell in love and eventually got to where they are today.

    Mary and John each went to an event that was held at Le Moyne College in upstate New York. This is where they were both studying at the time. Mary was from up state New York while John was from New Jersey.
    They were both 21 years old at the time and in their junior year of school. They went to a dinner event on campus and they just happened to have mutual friends and sit next to each other.

    They really hit I off at the dinner and had a great time talking to each other. After talking and meeting for the first time at the dinner they began to hang out more with their friends.
    Over the last year of college they got closer and closer. and become better friends.Towards the end of their senior year my dad proposed to my mom and they decied to get married. They were married the august after they graduated 1978 at 22 years old.

    John had plans to attend law school at Rutgers University in New Jersey, so they made the move to New Jersey.
    While they were getting on their feet they lived in not so great areas and made they best of what they had while john was in law school. After grading law school they moved to south jersey. After a few more years of getting on their feet they bought their first house.

    Over the next few years they had their first son john at the age of 28. Two years later they had their second son Michael and then five years later their daughter Maria. Mary has dedicated her life to her children. While John has been a lawyer for the past 30 years. While they are still live in New Jersey in the same house,they have plans to move to California.

    A lot has changed over these years but a lot has also stayed the same.
