Avraham plunged intrepidly ahead, violating conventional shidduch wisdom!

Marsha (47) from United Kingdom & Avraham (54) from New York, New York

Match #: 389 & 390

JWed played the part of international intermediary in the recent marriage of (former) subscribers Marsha and Avraham!
Marsha, a widow residing in London , and Avraham, a divorced denizen of Queens , New York , began a circumspect JWed correspondence in February.
Marsha understandably withheld her e-mail address until her dossier on Abbey was complete. Avraham, on the other hand, plunged intrepidly ahead, violating the conventional shidduch wisdom – pursuing the relationship without speaking to any third party about Marsha, having been duly persuaded of her sterling middos!
Marsha finally agreed to meet in early April at London's Waterloo train station, in the course of Avraham's visit to his daughter in Paris (getting exotic, isn't it?). The plot accelerated thereafter; and after another flurry of e-mails and phone conversations, the story reached its dénouement April 28th (or 29th - it was around midnight) on Chol HaMoed Pesach, during which the couple became engaged – much to the surprise of Marsha's two older children, her son who was married in January, and her daughter, engaged to be married in July.
Marsha and Avraham beat her daughter to it – they were married in London on June 16th, and presently reside there. We couldn't have done it without you, JWed!


Marsha and Avrham, JWed Match #195 were married on 9th Sivan 5765, 16 June 2005.
