Thomas COOK and Brenda COOK --
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, April 16, 2005, Page M6
Thomas George COOK's eyes welled with tears when he saw his bride in her ivory wedding gown, descending the staircase at Grande St. Lucian Resort in St. Lucia. "She looked so beautiful I was breathless and started to cry," he says.
Onlookers cheered the couple as they walked down a pathway to exchange vows in an ocean-side garden before a local registrar.
Finally, after four children and a quarter-century of marriage, Brenda COOK was wed in the traditional dress she had missed out on the first time around.
On December 30, the residents of Georgetown, Ontario, renewed their vows to mark their 25th anniversary, the first time in their marriage that they had ever been on a holiday without their children.
"We were worried about how we were going to interact alone together without kids," Mr. COOK says, but his wife enthuses, "We fell in love with each other all over again."
The ceremony fulfilled a long-held wish of Mrs. COOK's, her husband says. "Over the years of our marriage I have always asked her, 'Had you any regrets about how we were married?' and she said, 'The only regret I had was not wearing a white wedding gown.'"
They met in 1977 when she, then Brenda May LAW, was 16 and he was two years her senior. His older sister had been enlisted to supervise her and two siblings while their parents vacationed in Florida.
Mr. COOK says he thought he "shouldn't go out with her because she was too young," but her parents supported the relationship and the romance flowered.
Although they envisioned a traditional wedding three years later, the pair were married in a quiet civil ceremony after the new Anglican minister at her family's church posed an impediment.
"He didn't know our family or me," she remembers, "and thought Tom and I were far too young and wanted us to take marriage classes at the church."
But Mr. COOK rebelled upon learning the minister himself was not married. "What does somebody who isn't, or hasn't been married, going to tell us, whose parents have been married over 25 years?" he says. "I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with Brenda and anything he told me was not going to change that."
So she enlisted a family friend, Supreme Court judge John GREENWOOD, to marry them in his chambers at Osgoode Hall in Toronto on January 18, 1980. It was the first and only time he had performed a wedding. "We were happy just to get married," Mr. COOK says.
The young couple also surprised their new neighbours as they moved into their first home, in Port Credit. When asked when their parents were going to arrive, Mrs. COOK responded, "We are not helping our parents move in. This is my, and my husband's, home."
They would be blessed with four children, Tom, 23, Robynn, 22, William, 14, and Katelynn, 12, all of whom demonstrate academic and athletic excellence. They share their parents' love of the outdoors and respect for the environment. The two younger children and their mother regularly cycle the Martin Goodman Trail to Toronto.
When the couple decided to renew their vows, she explored the bridal salons with her daughters. "My youngest daughter picked out a Cinderella dress," laughs Mrs. COOK, an administrative assistant at Extendicare.
Wearing the gown was a highlight of the trip for her. "I wasn't allowed to see it until the day of the wedding," says Mr. COOK, a supervisor with Toronto Hydro, adding that she dined and danced in it until 4 a.m.
Before the trip to St. Lucia, their children arranged a surprise party to mark their parents' silver anniversary. Robynn encapsulates the couple's journey: "My parents have never had things easy. From day one of their marriage at such a young age they have strived to stay afloat even when the going got tough. They have supported me along the way in every goal that I have achieved -- and even those I've failed."

GRIFFITHS m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-01-14 published
Annabel Jane GRIFFITHS and Timothy Stuart FITZSIMMONS -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, January 14, 2006, Page M4
While they were still just Friends, Annabel GRIFFITHS wrote in her diary about her affinity with Timothy FITZSIMMONS: " Time we spend together is like we are building a step in a staircase. One day we will complete the staircase, look at this world we have created together, and kiss."
The two met in 1995 at Ryerson's theatre school, but the next year their careers and lives took divergent paths. An English graduate from the University of Western Ontario, Ms. GRIFFITHS established herself as an actor, writer and certified yoga instructor. She co-wrote (along with Alison Lawrence and Mary-Francis Moore) a semi-autobiographical play, bittergirl, a sassy comedy about getting on after getting dumped. The three starred in its London, New York and Toronto hit runs. Mr. FITZSIMMONS, during this time, graduated in English from McGill University and pursued a master's in journalism at New York University.
The two exchanged perfunctory e-mail messages and phone calls, but sustained their Friendship with a Jane Austen-like exchange of letters, where they shared sentiments that tiptoed around romance. "We loved the way we could express ideas and talk about things going on in our lives," Ms. GRIFFITHS says.
Queried as to why he was so obsessed with Ms. GRIFFITHS by fellow student Yon MOTSKIN -- later his best man -- Mr. FITZSIMMONS admitted: "I think this is the girl I'm going to marry. I have to go and see Annabel."
Thus, on a Labour Day visit home in 2000, he arranged a dinner date, shifting their standard scenario from coffee to candlelight as he resolved to "put it all on the table and tell Annabel." Despite an enchanting evening, Mr. FITZSIMMONS was afraid unrequited love would jeopardize their Friendship. He abandoned his effort and, disconsolate, trundled off to visit his parents in Kitchener.
Speaking to her friend Jen COMISH, Ms. GRIFFITHS lamented: "He's going back to New York. It will be months before I see him, and am I always going to wonder?" Ms. COMISH -- her future maid of honour -- persuaded her to call him before he left Kitchener, and she cast her fate with a message.
"I met him at the bus stop. We were grinning from ear to ear, went for a drink, and had our first kiss," she says of their decisive moment.
That fall, Ms. GRIFFITHS visited Mr. FITZSIMMONS several times. They walked all of Manhattan, enjoying Central Park, the East Village and Broadway.
By 2001, he was back in Toronto working as a website writer and editor until he entered Osgoode Hall Law School the next year. By December, 2004, they had moved "from hesitation to certainty." So after requesting Ms. GRIFFITHS' hand from her parents with a written declaration of his love, he surprised her with a weekend at Niagara-on-the-Lake's Oban Inn.
Mr. FITZSIMMONS recounted fond memories of vacations there as they crunched past his grandparents' former home, to the lake, where he proposed. "I said, 'Of course, but will you marry me?' " she recalls, teary-eyed. "We put the ring on, jumped in the snow, hugged and held hands just as the sun was setting."
On October 9, the Pillar and Post welcomed her English family and his Scottish family to their rose garden wedding, where Rev. Derek RYMARCHUK officiated. Their gifts to one another reflected a Victorian sensibility: He offered a love letter and diamond necklace in exchange for an engraved pocket watch.
Today, Mr. FITZSIMMONS, 32, articles at Fraser Milner Casgrain, as the new Mrs. FITZSIMMONS, 34, who will retain her maiden name professionally, juggles her artistic career while directing OmZone, a yoga and wellness company. "It's almost as if our souls were circling one another and when the time was right we came together," she says.

Christine Mary SHALABY and Michael Donohoe KILBY -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, October 29, 2005, Page M6
Emerging lawyers Christine SHALABY and Michael KILBY could argue a case for their relationship either way. If common interests, lifestyle and family values are the ties that bind, the pair share a virtual bounty; yet the paradox that opposites attract also fits their parameters.
Their families are complementary: Stocked with teachers and engineers, as well as twins -- including Mr. KILBY. And Ms. SHALABY, whose parents had emigrated from Egypt more than three decades ago, was born in St. Joseph's Hospital, as was the father of Mr. KILBY, who is of Scottish descent. Furthermore, Mr. KILBY's mother, Helen DONOHOE, remembers of her son, "As a child, Michael's burning ambition was to be an Egyptologist; he still treasures his King Tut pencil case." And, she adds, "Christine, with an ear for languages, has studied and perfected subtle Scottish regional accents."
In the Honours Arts and Science program at McMaster University in 1999, living with housemates off campus, the pair seemed polar opposites. "I'm a bit of an introvert, quite quiet," Mr. KILBY says. "Christine had no trouble standing up in school and singing an impromptu song, or talking to anyone randomly on the street. I wouldn't be so bold. She was someone very different from me [whom] I was attracted to."
"Mike is a good listener, extremely intelligent, always has another angle, and new insights, not ever predictable, which is exciting for me," notes Ms. SHALABY.
With a first kiss in March of 2001, their Friendship veered into romance. Concerned things might spiral out of control, they moved into different residences. "I did not feel it would be appropriate for us to live together and continue seeing each other," Ms. SHALABY says. "We are both fairly traditional people with a sense of propriety."
Upon graduation the next year, he began law school at the University of Toronto and, before eventually following suit, Ms. SHALABY chose a year's sojourn at her parents' Mississauga home. "I was a bit of a tourist, visited Europe, relatives in Egypt, and improved my spoken Arabic at [Cairo's] Kalimat School," she says.
"E-mail correspondence, where you can be very honest because you are not face to face, probably prompted us along," she admits, but she still managed to rendezvous with Mr. KILBY. "We visited by car, train, subway, and knew a lot of different routes to get to each other. We had a lovely year."
About that time, the pair began earnestly attending Walmer Road Baptist Church. "This is not a dogmatic, conservative church," Ms. SHALABY says. "It's more liberal and welcoming. There is a lot of diversity in belief, culture and age." It appealed to her Presbyterian and his United Church sensibilities.
Touring Scotland in June, 2003, was pivotal for the pair, who are now 25. "I visited and met Mike's relatives and stayed with his grandparents in Edinburgh," Ms. SHALABY recalls. "We had talked about getting married, but I think that probably sealed it for us."
When Mr. KILBY took Ms. SHALABY to visit the Power Plant gallery, she was hopeful: "He was fidgeting in his pocket and I thought for sure this was it." When he produced his wallet, her heart sank.
The gallery featured a John Kormeling installation, Mobile Fun -- a working, 30-metre Ferris wheel constructed to carry passengers in one of four mounted Saab automobiles. Over a couple of circuits, their auto and his courage soared. He produced the engagement ring, designed by Christian HASLER of Yorkville. "We came on as two single people, and got off engaged," Ms. SHALABY says.
On hearing the news, his fiancée's tightly knit phalanx of relatives humorously asked Mr. KILBY whether he had seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding. "It would be a useful primer for what lay ahead," laughs Mr. KILBY, slightly taken aback by the grandeur of wedding preparations. "I ended up making a chart of Christine's family and kind of knew who people were before I shook their hand."
On August 13, at Walmer Road Baptist Church, a piper greeted the 270 attendees. The pastoral officiants, Steve and Buff COX, greeted bridesmaids in eggplant dupioni silk cocktail dresses belted and hemmed in lime green, groomsmen in tuxedos with lime ties, the kilted bridegroom, best man, and the bride, gowned in an ivory silk Valencienne creation wearing pearls like an inverted pyramid. Three-year-old ring bearer Lucas GRUBB, from Edinburgh, handed a traditional horseshoe to the couple to capture good luck. Classical organist Imre Olah provided background music. Then at the register signing, Mr. KILBY's brother Scott, lead singer with the rock band Zeitgeist, sang David Francey's Come Rain or Come Shine, accompanied by piano and guitar.
The Liberty Grand reception livened up as Scotsmen -- many in kilts for the first time -- craned their necks at women, including the bride, gyrating with belly dancing moves during the Arabic music mix. Mr. KILBY was handed a cane and, prompted by his new wife, attempted the Saiidi dance.
Winner of McMaster's Hurd Medal for the highest mark in undergraduate economics, Mr. KILBY is articling at Stikeman Elliot LLP. Ms. SHALABY, who will finish her law degree this year, volunteers at the Barbara Schlifer Commemorative Clinic for women survivors of violence. "It's nice to be able to use law in a meaningful way," she says.
It is also, perhaps, a hint of their future. "We don't know where we will end up or what we will do," Ms. SHALABY says. "But we hope we'll end up as a family making a meaningful contribution."

GRUDI m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.toronto_star 2006-10-02 published
65 years and counting
Two Toronto brothers, their little sister and their spouses celebrate an incredible 65-plus years of marriage
By Andrea GORDON, Family Issues Writer
Jennie GRUDI and her brothers Joseph and Harry SPENCER have always shared a lot. Their Ukrainian heritage, many a Christmas Eve feast and a passion for music and dancing.
But how's this for a family tradition? As of last week, all three have been married for 65 years.
For Jennie, 85, and her husband, it's actually been 66. Their anniversary was two weeks ago. Then last Wednesday, Joseph, 89, and his wife celebrated 65 years. Harry, 87, and his beloved Margaret hit the 65-year mark in June.
"I think this is a pretty good story," Jennie says, smiling at her husband Stephen, 90, as the six long-time love birds gathered around the kitchen table in the GRUDIs' Etobicoke home.
No doubt about it. Why should celebrity breakups get all the ink? Brad and Jennifer, Nicole and Tom indeed. Where are the paparazzi when the really big marriage stories come along?
The Queen sent a letter of congratulations to the GRUDIs. So did the Prime Minister, the Governor General and Ontario's premier. The least they could do. It's not often you get to extend Happy 65th Anniversary wishes. You have to look long and hard to even find a card for the occasion.
Between them, the three couples have almost 200 years of marriage. Eight children, 21 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
In the period they've been married, Elizabeth Taylor has done it eight times. Courtship has moved from the soda fountain to the computer keyboard. Romance is more likely to blossom to the strains of hip-hop than big band.
But the secrets to long, strong marriages endure.
"We could always go to each other and talk anything out," Margaret, 85, says of her connection to Harry. "And we never went to bed mad."
"That's right," he adds, a twinkle in his eye. "She always had to apologize first." (Clearly, a sense of humour is important, too.)
A strong constitution helps. Joseph, who has been smitten with Dorreen, 87, for almost as long as he can remember, cites his mother's cooking. "Kapusta (cabbage soup) and borscht."
But their parents Victoria BARON and William CEPENDA, who were born in Ukraine, met in Toronto and married in 1916, raised their three kids on more than hearty soup. Love. Loyalty. Discipline. A strong Baptist faith. The boys eventually anglicized their last name to Spencer.
Their dad cried when the last child moved out of the west-Toronto house where they all grew up. He died at 69, their mom at 82.
These couples don't say it in so many words, but their marriages have flourished because of partners who are caring and generous. And not just to each other.
Harry, who quit school at 12 and later worked in a foundry during the war, has spent 60 years as a prison volunteer counselling inmates.
At home in Orillia, where the couple moved from Toronto 17 years ago, he often mows neighbours' lawn and clears their snow.
Steve, a long-time sheet metal worker, and Jennie, who just finished harvesting a good crop from her vegetable garden, both volunteer in their community, preparing food for other seniors and driving them to appointments.
Joseph had a long teaching career at Central Technical School and was honoured by the Governor General for his distinguished volunteer service with Saint_John Ambulance.
He still teaches Sunday school.
Last week, there was romance in the air as the couples reminisced about when their first sparks ignited.
Jennie remembers encountering Steve. "He met me and he said in Ukrainian, 'Where have you been all my life?' He was with his girlfriend."
Thank goodness the gal only spoke English. Eleven months later they were married.
It was at summer camp in the late '30s that Joseph fell for Dorreen. He found out where she attended church and one Sunday morning took the streetcar across Toronto to greet her as she emerged.
They married in 1941 and a few months later he was overseas with the air force. They wrote twice a week, still have the letters.
Harry and Margaret have Jennie to thank.
One day as a teenager, Margaret handed over her little autograph book to Jennie, hoping her friend's older brother might pen something memorable. He did. Then he returned the book in person. And the rest is history.
The six have always been close. Every Christmas, Dorreen did the turkey, Steve carved and Margaret made the dessert. "Squares, all kinds," she says, reluctant to blow her own horn.
That's okay. The others will. They never stop singing each other's praises, finishing each other's sentences and urging one another to expound on their accomplishments.
"A big asset is being part of this family," says Dorreen.
She tries to explain further, but it's hard to talk when you're all choked up.
No need to say more anyway. They all know.
Steve's wit takes a backseat, too, when it's his turn to reflect.
"I wish I could go for another 65 -- with the same woman."
He looks around the table, realizing he speaks for them all.
And really, what better anniversary gift could you get than that?
