The couple visits Fox 2 News in the Morning to share their story, which appears in Metro’s special Valentine’s Day blog.
Fifteen years ago, Kristen and Chris were just two MetroLink passengers who rode the same train to work every day, but whose paths never crossed. Little did they know that fate would change their lives forever in the fall of 2001, with a little help from a matchmaker – a common friend named Corey.
One day in October 2001, Kristen happened to ask Corey if he knew of any single guys that might be a good match for her. Riding MetroLink with his two friends every day, Corey couldn’t help but suggest Chris. Corey gave her Chris’ email address, and the two soon started exchanging emails. Emails quickly turned into dates to Cardinals and Rams games. Those dates turned into trips to meet each other’s parents for dinner and family gatherings.
