Kelly Lynn Irene BELBIN and Lee Garrett Patrick MYSKA -- Match:
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, January 21, 2006, Page M4
A mutual friend, convinced that Kelly BELBIN and Lee MYSKA would hit it off, shaved a few years from his age, added several to hers and persuaded the pair to meet in February, 2002.
The ploy didn't entirely work -- "I think he thought I was younger than I was supposed to be," recalls Ms. BELBIN, now 28 -- but intrigued by his conversation, she gave him her number, which led to dinner and a movie.
The pair were soon an item. Although their lives meshed with a plethora of common interests, a semi-generational gap occasionally reared its head. Mr. MYSKA, now 41, is a devotee of seventies and eighties television. "It was funny she didn't know anything about shows I'd watched when I was younger: Sanford and Son, The Rockford Files or Bob Newhart," he says. However, shared evenings watching cable enhanced her appreciation for these small-screen classics.
Still, Ms. BELBIN wasn't sure how serious he was -- until he introduced her to his now 89-year-old grandmother. At their first meeting, "she was quiet, listening to what I had to say," Ms. BELBIN recalls, "but the next time, she asked my religious background and how I grew up." For the future bride and groom, both from close-knit families, it was an important sign.
Ms. BELBIN felt mutual respect and compromise bridged their difference in age. "At parties, I was nervous. I didn't know his Friends, and they'd talk about their kids and the old days," she says. Yet she fondly notes that Mr. MYSKA encouraged her to tread her own path. "I think it's understanding you are in different spots in your life," she says. "My Friends still like to go to clubs, and Lee's done that."
Earlier, work at a summer camp for adults with disabilities had Ms. BELBIN abandon two years of psychology at Trent University to enroll in the development services program at Humber College. That led to her present position with Community Living Toronto, where she instructs in a variety of subjects including social and life skills. The union activist and steward says her philosophy and politics can clash with those of Mr. MYSKA, a manager of trust accounting at Manulife Mutual Funds.
Fortunately, the pair have learned to separate labour relations from personal relations. "Sometimes the discussions do get a little heated," Ms. BELBIN says. "We… have an open mind about each other's views. If it gets too tough, [we] drop it and revisit it.
"We balance each other."
On October 22, at the Toronto Board of Trade's Airport Centre, officiant Sarah BUNNETT- GIBSON performed a non-denominational ceremony.
To the rhythm of This One's for the Girls, the bride's aunt, Nancy PAUL- DUDDY, presented a slide show of women whose influence had helped sculpt the bride. Her inspiration came from the valiant effort of the bride's grandmother, Cara PEACOCK, who succumbed to cancer September 9 without realizing her dream of attending the wedding. "The girls in our family have an unbroken bond," asserts Mrs. PAUL- DUDDY.
Less than a minute into their first dance to Van Morrison's Sweet Thing, Mrs. MYSKA, who will retain her maiden name professionally, lost a shoe, but didn't miss a beat. "I knew if I kicked the other one off, I would have fallen on my dress for sure," she laughs.

Broken leg forces pair to alter marriage plans
Amanda SPRUCE may roll down the aisle in a wheelchair.
By Kelly PEDRO, Sun Media, Fri., June 22, 2007
Something old, something new, something borrowed and something... chrome?
Amanda SPRUCE of Ingersoll, set to get married tomorrow, could be rolling down the aisle in a wheelchair after she slipped and broke her leg in two places a week ago.
"The hardest part is knowing I can't walk down the aisle like I wanted to and my first dance might be in a wheelchair," the bride-to-be said.
Undeterred, SPRUCE, 29, and fiance Brian PARKE, 34, are going ahead with their big day, subject to a few changes.
SPRUCE has traded in her heels for one white running shoe. She's also been outfitted with a pink cast to match the dresses of her bridesmaids.
And with extensive walking out of the question, the couple has cancelled their honeymoon -- a trip to Niagara Falls, the Elora Gorge and Canada's Wonderland.
"You have to have fun with it. You can't be bummed out about it because you can't change it," SPRUCE said.
SPRUCE and PARKE were walking from their yard to a neighbour's pool last Friday when SPRUCE slipped and fell.
She spent the night in the emergency department of the Ingersoll hospital before being sent to London for surgery.
She was back in the Ingersoll hospital that night and has been home since Monday.
"I was pretty hysterical," said SPRUCE, who spent her time in the hospital preparing wedding seating charts.
"I've never had a broken anything," she said.
Friends and family are helping with the last-minute wedding details, PARKE said.
The couple is getting married at the Ingersoll Golf and Country Club, which has offered golf carts to get them around.
"At the end of the day, when it all comes down to it, we'll still be married," SPRUCE said.

PELOSO m@ca.on.middlesex_county.london.london_free_press 2007-08-05 published
Ontario health minister to wed gay partner today
By Canadian Press, Sun., August 5, 2007
Toronto -- Ontario's first openly gay cabinet minister has just one day of bachelorhood left before he takes himself off the market.
Health Minister George SMITHERMAN is tying the knot with his partner Christopher PELOSO today at a lakeside lodge near Sudbury before 202 close Friends.
With the imminent end of his freedom in sight, the colourful and gregarious deputy premier said he wasn't nervous about anything -- except the co-operation of Mother Nature.
"But I can't control that," said Smitherman, 43.
After talking about having a "shotgun wedding" if the federal Conservatives reversed the country's law allowing same-sex marriage, SMITHERMAN made his engagement public in February.
He has joked about the need to get in shape for the big day to avoid wearing a "Homer Simpson inspired muumuu."
Training for a recent three-day charity bike ride from Toronto to Kingston took care of any excess weight and SMITHERMAN said he's both mentally and physically ready to get hitched to 33-year-old PELOSO.
"It's going to be great," he said. "I'm really excited about it. It's going to be fantastic."|

PERSAD m@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2006-06-17 published
Leila Andrée SHENOUDA and Joseph PERSAD -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Page M5
When they started dating at the age of 15, Leila SHENOUDA and Joseph PERSAD had no idea they would build a life together.
She was a shy rocker chick in fishnets; he was confident and stylish.
"At first, I didn't think I'd want to be with someone like him," she says. "But we were such good Friends, and communicated so easily…. There were sparks, and that was it."
"I was a one-track person -- my way or the highway," Mr. PERSAD recalls.
"But Leila made me listen and look. I was set in one genre, and she made me more accepting about the world and what it had to offer."
Theirs was the classic high-school romance until she learned at 18 that, because of a medical condition, it was unlikely she could conceive. "Being a mother had always been a No. 1 goal in life," Ms. SHENOUDA says. "I dreamed of it playing with my Barbies."
With her maternal aspirations devastated, it was an improbable event when she found herself pregnant four years into the relationship. At 20, the couple were the proud parents of Zephan Shenouda PERSAD.
"His name is about the only thing we never agreed upon. I was flipping through the Bible and saw Zephaniah, and if you say it three or four times, Zephan works," chuckles Mr. PERSAD.
Their little miracle motivated Ms. SHENOUDA, then working at Royal Bank, to change her career.
"The day that I had my son, I realized I wanted to work with people on a real level…. My life had been touched and blessed, and from that moment I felt I owed the world and wanted to serve God and do good," she adds.
"But I think every nurse goes into the profession because they want to help."
Thus, with sacrifice and much support from her family, Ms. SHENOUDA became a registered nurse. She is now in the cardiology unit of the University Health Network at Toronto Western Hospital.
"Her job is gratifying. She comes home knowing she's helped people every day, and it shines on her," notes a proud Mr. PERSAD, now a compliance officer at Georgeson Shareholders.
His first marriage proposal, in his parents' basement at 17, was a little premature, he says with a laugh.
The second came years later, in October, 2004, when Ms. SHENOUDA helped him choose a ring and then went on to foil his candlelight-and-wine plans, asking: "Aren't you going to give it to me now?"
But the marriage would wait until all their ducks were in a row: her education and career change a fait accompli, a new home purchased in June, 2005, and their son attending school.
The Canadian-born couple had already bridged their cultural differences he is Catholic, with a Trinidadian background and Hindu grandparents, while she was raised Coptic Orthodox by her Egyptian father and French-Canadian mother.
"We've learned to embrace all of that throughout the years with religious events, different foods, and family gatherings," she says.
On April 23, at Bluffer's Restaurant in Scarborough, the pair, both 26, recited personal vows, including one to the ring-bearer, Zephan, who lit his own unity candle.
"Neither one of us wanted to convert," says the new Mrs. SHENOUDA- PERSAD, "and Sarah" -- Sarah BUNNETT- GIBSON, a non-denominational minister -- "offered us something unique, just as our relationship has been."
"Leila trusted me and my groomsmen to decorate. We had flowers, butterflies, doves, stars, and glitter," Mr. PERSAD jokes.
"I was in black and silver. I wanted blue and white -- but it didn't matter, the Leafs weren't playing."
The honeymoon was classic: a trip to one of the seven wonders, Niagara Falls, with the eighth, their son Zephan, in tow.

Same-sex married couples rejoice
Ruling recognizes union of couples married in 2001; others rush to wed
By Estanislao OZIEWICZ Wednesday, June 11, 2003 - Page A4
Toronto -- For Kevin BOURASSA, 45, and Joe VARNELL, 33, becoming Canada's first same-sex married couple is bittersweet, even as advocates call their union a world first.
"Gee, I wish my mom could have seen this," Mr. VARNELL said. "Because of what the court did in Ontario today no mother will ever again not be able to dance at her son's wedding. That's a wonderful thing."
With his "lawfully wedded husband" at his side, Mr. VARNELL said they planned to celebrate by going home, popping a bottle of champagne and cuddling with their cat.
"If you forgive me, I never want to see any of you in my living room again," he said.
The pioneering couple, who were wed on January 14, 2001, and other same-sex couples seeking to be married in civil ceremonies were speaking at a news conference after a historic Ontario Court of Appeal ruling that they have a constitutional right to marriage.
"Canada gets the gold medal for same-sex marriage around the world," said Trent MORRIS, lawyer for the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto.
"I would like to congratulate them for being the first same-sex couple married not only in Canada but, as Mr. MORRIS indicated, the first same-sex couple in the world," said Cynthia PETERSON, lawyer for Equality for Gays And Lesbians Everywhere, a national advocacy organization for gays and lesbians.
The Netherlands became the first country in the world to legalize marriage for gays and lesbians on April 1, 2001. This year, Belgium became the second country to open marriage to same-sex couples. Unlike its northern neighbour, Belgium did not allow such couples to adopt children.
Mr. VARNELL, an e-commerce consultant, and Mr. BOURASSA, a former bank manager who is now a full-time advocate for marriage equality, were wed at the Metropolitan Community Church before the Dutch law was changed, using an ancient -- and legally valid -- Christian tradition of publication of banns, which amount to a notice of intent to marry. This allowed them to avoid having to get a marriage licence issued by the city.
The hitch, however, has been that whether a marriage in Ontario is preceded by civil licence or by banns, it has to be registered by the province's registrar-general.
Yesterday's court ruling not only ordered the City of Toronto to issue licences to same-sex couples but also told the province to register same-sex marriages. The city complied immediately, and by late yesterday morning had issued licences to several couples, including Ontario Crown attorney Michael LESHNER, 55, who a few hours later married his partner of two decades, Michael STARK, 45, in front of Mr. Justice John HAMILTON of the Ontario Superior Court.
"This is first and foremost a Canadian love story," said Mr. LESHNER, who has been a thorn in the side of the Ontario government for years.
"This is why people come to Canada, because they marvel at our values, and we've sent an unmistakable message that love can conquer all, the love of two good men can defeat everything.... It [homophobia] is dead legally as of today."
The joy and optimism of homosexual groups was tempered by the Ontario government's reluctance to embrace the ruling immediately without reservation.
Attorney-General Norman STERLING told the legislature that he was waiting to hear whether the federal government would appeal the decision to the Supreme Court. Although municipalities and provinces administer marriages, the federal government is responsible for defining marriage.
"We will, of course, follow what the court says in the decision and follow that to the letter of the law," Mr. STERLING said.
Among those celebrating yesterday were Joyce BARNETT and Alison KEMPER, who also picked up their marriage licences at Toronto City Hall and will marry in July, 2004. The women, both of whom are ordained in the Anglican Church, have been together since Their two children were delighted. "I knew that nobody could say I didn't have a family," said Robbie, 11, who was born to Ms. KEMPER. " Canada has finally figured out it's unfair to deny this to anybody."
His sister Hannah, 17, said she has grown up to find that she is heterosexual. She said she is indebted to her parents for bringing her up "where it's okay to be what you want to be."
The court ruling did not sit well with some religious organizations, including the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada.
Evangelical Fellowship of Canada president Bruce CELEMENGER said the court has fundamentally redefined marriage.
"It is not an appropriate use of the Charter to redefine pre-existing social, cultural and religious institutions," he said.
