Nez and Sabrina were destined to meet—they just didn't know it. Upon meeting at a party a year and a half ago, they discovered uncanny near-misses between them. “The timing was just right!” Nez claims. “It was love at first sight. As we started dating, we realized that we had most of the same friends and hung out in the same places, but never crossed paths. I even saw a picture of me at her house from a few years ago with some mutual friends of ours!” They are presently planning their wedding, and keeping sane by acting as each other’s best friends and motivators. Nez came into the relationship as a package deal with her 19-year-old daughter—and she and Sabrina get along swimmingly. It doesn't get any better than that.
