Abbey and John went to the same elementary, middle, and high schools. They even played on the same tennis team but never really spoke until their senior year of high school when Abbey finally got up the nerve to approach John and introduce herself. “John, being a man of many words, said ‘hey,’” recalls Abbey. But the ice was finally broken and they started dating.
