JOAQUIM m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2005-11-19 published
Edward Manuel CORDEIRO and Noelia Maria JOAQUIM -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, November 19, 2005, Page M5
The kinks in the once-budding relationship between Nelly JOAQUIM and Ed CORDEIRO were merely bookends to their rediscovery after 26 years apart.
They had both arrived in Toronto as young children from Portugal. By their teens, he was an M.V.P. football player at Parkdale Collegiate Insitute, and she attended West Toronto Secondary School. When she was confronted by the ultimate crisis -- no date for her 1977 prom -- her cousin Lydia recruited Mr. CORDEIRO for what would play out like an episode of Happy Days.
"I got dressed up in this long, gorgeous, sexy red gown, [and] drove with my cousin and her boyfriend [future husband] Joe MELO in his Camaro over to Ed's place," she recalls.
Ed had played football, gone out for a few with the boys, and was lying down for a nap. Bedraggled, he showered and the quartet floored it to the Park Plaza Hotel, arriving late. "They set up a folding table for us smack in the middle of the dance floor," Ms. JOAQUIM recalls. "I didn't know if that was to embarrass us." If not, the table collapsing and depositing Mr. MELO's dinner in his lap sufficed.
Ms. JOAQUIM, now executive assistant to the president of Holt Renfrew, says: "Ed was good-looking, a nice guy, not the macho type, but my parents were strict and I was not allowed to date."
Using his sister as a go-between, Mr. CORDEIRO managed a handful of dates with Ms. JOAQUIM until she went abroad for a month. "I sent him a postcard, which he just found among his memorabilia," she says. "We're not sure to this day why we didn't reconnect."
During the intervening years, each followed a distinct path of marriage, family and divorce. It was Mr. MELO, their lifelong mutual friend, who served as a catalyst when he invited the pair to his pool party.
"I'm not a matchmaker," Mr. MELO says. "I didn't tell anyone in case it didn't work out, but I felt they had so much in common."
The party fell on the day of the blackout of 2003, and Ms. JOAQUIM was almost a no-show, hesitant to leave her children alone. She set out when the lights came on, not knowing her football hero would be there. "His blond hair was grey, he had a grey mustache, and I didn't recognize him until he smiled, and I thought, 'Oh my God, that's Eddie!' " she says.
"I felt the sparks and the magic," says Mr. CORDEIRO, 48. "It was an amazing evening."
But Ms. JOAQUIM had emerged from tattered relationships and admits she was mired in doubt. "I needed someone who would treat me as an equal," she says, "love me for who I am, not someone they wanted me to be."
Mr. CORDEIRO, who runs his own technology business, sought "that multidimensional relationship where you connect on all levels, and you are stronger as a team than individually."
Within two weeks, he had hurdled her barriers and professed his love. "The words just came out of my mouth and I was shocked," he says.
Their families met a month later, sharing travel and adventure over the next year. That November, as the two were celebrating Ms. JOAQUIM's 45th birthday at her favourite restaurant, Auberge du Pommier, he proposed with a poem and a diamond nestled in petals of a white rose.
The bride's vision of a tropical destination wedding was trumped by family practicality, but they transformed Sunnyside Pavilion into a Polynesian paradise. There, they recited personal vows on August 26 before Reverend Robert BUCKLEY. The attendants were the couple's children: maid of honour Melanie JOAQUIM, 21, her brother Jeffrey, 16, best man Adam CORDEIRO, 18, and his sister, Megan, 16.
"When my mother reconnected with Ed, I knew he was going to be part of our family, and [I knew] that my mom had fallen in love with him even before she did," Melanie JOAQUIM says. "She just radiated a different kind of happiness."

Elizabeth SCOTT and John JOHNSON -- Match:
By Judith Tenebaum, Saturday, May 21, 2005, Page M6
When John David JOHNSON, a Huntsville lawyer, couldn't negotiate an out-of-court settlement for one of his clients, his case proceeded to the examination-for-discovery stage, in May of 2001 in Lindsay, Ontario But his ultimate discovery would be Elizabeth Ann SCOTT.
After he conducted 45 minutes of questions, "I sat back in my chair, proud, congratulating myself," he says. Mr. JOHNSON then suggested Ms. SCOTT, a Toronto lawyer representing another party in the case, might have further queries. "She asked her first question, and I thought, 'I should have asked that,' and then another that was good too, and so it went for about an hour.
"Elizabeth was showing me how to do my job. That was the first time we met."
Ms. SCOTT says she found Mr. JOHNSON "pretty smart and cute," but other than that, she didn't think much about him at that point.
However, when the examinations concluded in November of 2001, Mr. JOHNSON and Ms. SCOTT lunched that final Friday with a fellow lawyer before each headed home. "I didn't know if there was a boyfriend, so I asked questions designed to elicit a 'we' response, and gathered by the end of lunch she was single," says Mr. JOHNSON, who was newly available after a divorce.
When Ms. SCOTT said she would be working that Sunday, he mentioned that, coincidentally, he would be in Toronto that day and invited her out to dinner. "That's when I realized, whoo, he's asking me out on a date," says Ms. SCOTT, who cites timing and fate as instrumental in their romance. She notes that had the lawsuit against her client been dropped, "John and I would have never met."
As they got to know each other, they learned that they had taken the same bar admission course in Toronto in 1993. "I'm sure we passed each other in the hall, and never knew who the other was. If we had met, it wouldn't have been the right time," says Ms. SCOTT, since Mr. JOHNSON was married at that time.
Strong parental influence prompted both their careers. "When I was a child, I was so argumentative my parents said I'd be a fine lawyer. I'd wanted to be one from the time I was 10," says Mr. JOHNSON, a Queen's University graduate who hails from Sundridge, Ontario, north of Huntsville.
"My dad always said, 'You should work for the underdog and help people who need help.' "
True to that tenet, he says his clients are frequently "people who have been hurt, or are sick, and trying to get benefits from their insurance companies." As well, Mr. JOHNSON, 35, has worked regularly with house-building charity Habitat for Humanity, participating in five projects, including one in Guyana.
Ms. SCOTT accepted her lawyer father's advice and entered law school at the University of New Brunswick after completing an honours degree in psychology and taking off a year to tour Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. After graduating, she found her niche with Lawson McGrenere LLP representing insurers.
"I'm 39 now, dated a bit, and knew what I wanted. John is not your conventional lawyer. He was like nobody else I had ever met and treated me like gold," she says.
After only their second date, a smitten and hopeful Mr. JOHNSON made an oblivious Ms. SCOTT his life-insurance beneficiary. Meanwhile, he had unwittingly won her over when he arrived at her home toting a toolbox and ready to hang a heavy mirror that other suitors had only promised to do. "I thought it was a sign," she says, recalling that she had mused to herself, "Wouldn't it be funny if this is the one I'm going to marry?"
Despite the playful chastisements of Friends that he was consorting with the opposition after eight months of commuting from Muskoka to Toronto, Mr. JOHNSON arranged a transfer and joined Ms. SCOTT in a home they purchased. He became a partner in Johnson Clonfero LLP and revived his adolescent passion for motorcycles. He purchased one with assurances to a nervous Ms. SCOTT that at the driver's certification course he had taken, the examiner had deducted points for driving too slowly.
On Friday evening of the 2004 Labour Day weekend, he persuaded a wary Ms. SCOTT to hop on his sport bike.
She clung to him tightly as they wound their way to Cherry Beach. Alone there, she recalls her surprise as he reached into his motorcycle jacket, pulled out a little box and got down on one knee. "It was sweet," she says, "and by the water you feel like you're not even in Toronto."
At Leaside United Church on January 22, Reverend Betty JORDAN, whom the bridegroom had met through Habitat, and Reverend Erin TODD performed the nuptials, with a luncheon at McLean House capping the event.
Considering that they often find themselves on the opposite ends of arguments, they are remarkably adept at keeping their relationship free of tension. "For the most part, we see things the same way and bring the same philosophy to the practice of law," Mr. JOHNSON says, adding, "Elizabeth is smart, sexy, independent, everything I wanted in a partner."

Shelley Lynn SCARROW and James Andrew HURST -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M4
Shelley SCARROW and James HURST learned how to take criticism from each other long before they became romantically involved. As co-writers on the television series Degrassi: The Next Generation, they sparred regularly over plot lines and character development.
"Being in the same room with a person when they are throwing out creative ideas and you are shooting them down is a recipe for disaster," Mr. HURST says.
Fortunately, Ms. SCARROW adds, "we conversed like co-workers, and it made romance a piece of cake because we had figured out communicating early on."
Their careers first intersected on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation series Riverdale in 2000, and a flirtation flickered. Later, Ms. SCARROW -- hired on to the Degrassi series, and fond of the savvy Mr. HURST -- recruited him to train her on scriptwriting software. Both were in relationships at the time, she notes. "It was sort of Sex and the City: the guy so sweet, and so taken, a completely safe crush."
By the show's second season, both were unattached, but Ms. SCARROW played it coy. "When he'd come round, I'd make rebound noises -- bong, bong -- because I knew if I fell for him, it would be eternal brokenheartedness, or marriage."
But a watershed moment came when he offered her two mix CDs. "With quotes and graphics, they were like works of art. The fact he spent so many hours on them was a little ding!"
Mr. HURST remembers being smitten during an early date when he touched her and "felt a magic thunderbolt." Still, they kept their romance a secret, lest it appear to compromise their creative efforts. "I needed to be able to say, 'James, that's the dumbest idea I've ever heard,' " she laughs.
But when both went to the hospital with food poisoning, a co-worker in crisis called his home looking for Ms. SCARROW. Since their secret was clearly in the open, the two "came out of the closet," she says.
Degrassi storylines and characters often paralleled their personal realities. "We wrote our own romance, in a weird, oblique sort of way, but I don't think we were aware," Mr. HURST says. "One episode Shelley wrote was so beautiful it blew me away. I'd like to think [that], in it, she was describing feelings for me."
With television movies and documentaries to his credit, he has won two Writers Guild of Canada awards and at 36 is an executive producer and head writer on the sixth season of Degrassi. Ms. SCARROW, whose Degrassi writing is characterized by raw and jarring subject matter, was a co-Gemini nominee with Mr. HURST. The duo, both B.F.A. graduates of York University, are social and environmental activists. They drive a Prius, support Amnesty International, the World Wildlife Federation and (in his case) the Green Party.
"James makes me laugh every day," she says. "I know if we got stuck in a cellar for 30 days, we'd never run out of things to talk about and there'd be a lot of giggling."
He counters: "Shelley's the best of both worlds, beautiful and brilliant, but we have fun and goof around."
On a showery Valentine's evening in 2005, a ring in his pocket, he visualized parking a block from the trendy Rain restaurant and huddling under an umbrella to offer a proposal. But the gods dissented, and when he was forced to wheel into a space right in front of the restaurant, the uber-cool Mr. HURST was flummoxed. "I ordered a large drink, couldn't eat, and the room was spinning. I was a nervous, babbling mess," he admits. But they joined the world of hokey hearts as he rattled off his proposal to the approval of nearby diners.
Officiant Virginia Cresswell JONES married the couple at the Distillery District's Blue Dot Gallery on May 6. The new Mrs. SCARROW HURST, 35, looked like a torch singer in a Marcel wave and thirties-style trumpet skirted gown, complemented by her bridegroom in shadow pinstripe. "We felt Hollywood," she recalls, "a little Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald."

Elizabeth SCOTT and John JOHNSON -- Match:
By Judith Tenebaum, Saturday, May 21, 2005, Page M6
When John David JOHNSON, a Huntsville lawyer, couldn't negotiate an out-of-court settlement for one of his clients, his case proceeded to the examination-for-discovery stage, in May of 2001 in Lindsay, Ontario But his ultimate discovery would be Elizabeth Ann SCOTT.
After he conducted 45 minutes of questions, "I sat back in my chair, proud, congratulating myself," he says. Mr. JOHNSON then suggested Ms. SCOTT, a Toronto lawyer representing another party in the case, might have further queries. "She asked her first question, and I thought, 'I should have asked that,' and then another that was good too, and so it went for about an hour.
"Elizabeth was showing me how to do my job. That was the first time we met."
Ms. SCOTT says she found Mr. JOHNSON "pretty smart and cute," but other than that, she didn't think much about him at that point.
However, when the examinations concluded in November of 2001, Mr. JOHNSON and Ms. SCOTT lunched that final Friday with a fellow lawyer before each headed home. "I didn't know if there was a boyfriend, so I asked questions designed to elicit a 'we' response, and gathered by the end of lunch she was single," says Mr. JOHNSON, who was newly available after a divorce.
When Ms. SCOTT said she would be working that Sunday, he mentioned that, coincidentally, he would be in Toronto that day and invited her out to dinner. "That's when I realized, whoo, he's asking me out on a date," says Ms. SCOTT, who cites timing and fate as instrumental in their romance. She notes that had the lawsuit against her client been dropped, "John and I would have never met."
As they got to know each other, they learned that they had taken the same bar admission course in Toronto in 1993. "I'm sure we passed each other in the hall, and never knew who the other was. If we had met, it wouldn't have been the right time," says Ms. SCOTT, since Mr. JOHNSON was married at that time.
Strong parental influence prompted both their careers. "When I was a child, I was so argumentative my parents said I'd be a fine lawyer. I'd wanted to be one from the time I was 10," says Mr. JOHNSON, a Queen's University graduate who hails from Sundridge, Ontario, north of Huntsville.
"My dad always said, 'You should work for the underdog and help people who need help.' "
True to that tenet, he says his clients are frequently "people who have been hurt, or are sick, and trying to get benefits from their insurance companies." As well, Mr. JOHNSON, 35, has worked regularly with house-building charity Habitat for Humanity, participating in five projects, including one in Guyana.
Ms. SCOTT accepted her lawyer father's advice and entered law school at the University of New Brunswick after completing an honours degree in psychology and taking off a year to tour Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. After graduating, she found her niche with Lawson McGrenere LLP representing insurers.
"I'm 39 now, dated a bit, and knew what I wanted. John is not your conventional lawyer. He was like nobody else I had ever met and treated me like gold," she says.
After only their second date, a smitten and hopeful Mr. JOHNSON made an oblivious Ms. SCOTT his life-insurance beneficiary. Meanwhile, he had unwittingly won her over when he arrived at her home toting a toolbox and ready to hang a heavy mirror that other suitors had only promised to do. "I thought it was a sign," she says, recalling that she had mused to herself, "Wouldn't it be funny if this is the one I'm going to marry?"
Despite the playful chastisements of Friends that he was consorting with the opposition after eight months of commuting from Muskoka to Toronto, Mr. JOHNSON arranged a transfer and joined Ms. SCOTT in a home they purchased. He became a partner in Johnson Clonfero LLP and revived his adolescent passion for motorcycles. He purchased one with assurances to a nervous Ms. SCOTT that at the driver's certification course he had taken, the examiner had deducted points for driving too slowly.
On Friday evening of the 2004 Labour Day weekend, he persuaded a wary Ms. SCOTT to hop on his sport bike.
She clung to him tightly as they wound their way to Cherry Beach. Alone there, she recalls her surprise as he reached into his motorcycle jacket, pulled out a little box and got down on one knee. "It was sweet," she says, "and by the water you feel like you're not even in Toronto."
At Leaside United Church on January 22, Reverend Betty JORDAN, whom the bridegroom had met through Habitat, and Reverend Erin TODD performed the nuptials, with a luncheon at McLean House capping the event.
Considering that they often find themselves on the opposite ends of arguments, they are remarkably adept at keeping their relationship free of tension. "For the most part, we see things the same way and bring the same philosophy to the practice of law," Mr. JOHNSON says, adding, "Elizabeth is smart, sexy, independent, everything I wanted in a partner."
