On a recent Saturday night, three couples had dinner together at a restaurant in Glenview. One couple has been happily married for 16 years. The second couple was my boyfriend and myself. We have been together for over a year. The third couple is the topic of this column. They have been dating for nine weeks, and yes, they are still counting it in weeks.
Gazing into each other’s eyes and giggling as they told us all how they met, I found myself soaking up the warmth of my friends’ fairy tale, and enjoying it like a romantic comedy movie or a good Jennifer Weiner novel.
