Though they didn't attend the same high school, Courtney knew James as a teenager, since they had the same group of friends. The summer after her freshman year of college, Courtney called Erin and told him about her longtime crush on him. He followed her to San Francisco as she finished college, and then Courtney moved to southern California when Erin started at Art Center College of Design. During the nine years they were together, they often talked about getting married.
