The duo has stuck by each other through thick and thin and are still going strong.

Tish Was Previously Engaged

Joe met Tish when he was still studying at the University of Connecticut School of Law. In search of refreshments, he went to Storrs Marriott, a hotel near campus. That is when he spotted Tish, who was a hotel manager, for the first time and immediately fell in love. The young lad wasted no time and asked her for a date. 

Tish looked up in amusement at first. However, she quickly declined her future husband when she found out he was serious. She mentioned that she was already engaged to a guy named Paul, who was based in New Zealand.

Despite this, Joe persisted and asked her for a single date. He was allowed a 60-minute date as Tish’s parents didn’t want her to be with Paul. Joe was given a chance, and he almost ruined it immediately.

He broke her Mazda’s window with a coat hanger and placed a rose and a note on the driver’s seat, a move considered romantic among Brooklyn natives. But Tish was from Westport. Luckily for him, the tactic worked, and they got engaged seven weeks later. 

Five children, four dogs, and one bird later, it is safe to say Tish doesn’t regret her choices.
