How did you and your spouse meet, and how long have you been together? “Tyler and I have been together for eight years and married for 10 months. We met in fourth grade when I moved to Mineral City.

How did you and your spouse meet, and how long have you been together? “Nicholas and I met in middle school while attending Middlebranch Middle School. We fell in love with one another and ‘officially’ began dating March 15, 2008. (We come from the era where social media was evolving and it was imperative to provide the exact date because a relationship is not official unless it says so on Facebook, right?!) Since then, we have grown together, along with our love for one another.”
How did you and your spouse meet, and how long have you been together? “We went to high school together. We never dated throughout high school but always had mutual friends. Jenna went to Ohio University for college, and Zach attended Kent State University. The beginning of Jenna’s junior year, Zach came down with a group of friends to visit for the weekend, and from then on, the rest is history. They dated for about seven and a half years before getting engaged.”
