At the start, our relationship was professional but quickly became personal, in fact we soon became fast friends and spent a lot of time comisserating over
the poor way our partners were treating us. Eventually, I broke up with my fiance and told Ems that I was going to wait for her to get tired of the way
her boyfriend was treating her. Four months later, she told me to buy a ticket and come meet her family.
That was nearly six years ago. We had a wonderful time traveling together and usually were joined on our trips by her sister, the third Musketeer, so to
speak. We became engaged, she came to the USA on a fiance visa, and we were married in 2019. I realize that many people don’t ‘get’ our relationship; there
is a huge age gap, but to us we never see it. We are remarkably well suited, we enjoy doing everything together, and make a very good professional team as well.
