Courtney and Nathan went to the same high school together. “We weren’t high school sweethearts or anything,” Courtney says. It wasn’t until reconnecting after college in 2012 that they started dating. “We had known each other for what seemed like forever. Growing up in the same town as a person, there’s a sense that you share formative experiences and see the world in a similar way. I really felt this with Nathan,” she remembers.

Both were seeing other people at the time. Claire looks back and says with a little laugh, “Our relationships didn’t last too much longer. We went back home for Thanksgiving break and told our significant others that we had met someone. That was nine years ago, we’ve been inseparable ever since.” Read More
