Love and Marriage

Inspired by the classic romantic comedy “When Harry Met Sally,” which premiered in theaters 30 years ago, this episode is all about love and marriage.  Three married guest couples reflect back on falling in love, dating, and making love and marriage last in their own relationships.  These couples include:  Naperville City councilman Benny White and his wife, Kim White, executive director of the Career & Networking Center, married 32 years; Erik and Amy Sachs, married for 11 years; Desir and Kellie Martial, married 5 years.

Together they share first date mishaps:  “Our first date, he was late,” said Kellie Martial about her now husband.  “My friend made me late,” said Desir Martial.  “I was so upset.  I thought she was going to kill me.”

They also debate the age-old question can men and women just be friends or does the sex part get in the way?  “One of Eric’s best friends was also one of my best friends,” said Amy Sachs.  “When we started dating, this friend and I were on the phone and we were like, ‘Maybe we shouldn’t be on the phone any more together.'”
