Stephen’s girlfriend had given him an ultimatum at the time: they will get married or separate. Stephen decided to spend a week back in his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina to think about it and soon realized he wasn’t ready to marry her yet. While he was there, his mother invited him to see a musical, where he saw Evelyn across the room. He immediately thought there’s your wife, you’re going to marry her. She cut into line for him at the after-party, he had gathered the courage to talk to her, and they realized they had grown up together but gone to different schools. They ended up talking for two hours, but Stephen was convinced she was just being nice, not that she liked him. He decided to test his theory when someone else stepped in to talk to them. He turned his back for a few minutes to give her a chance to get out of the conversation with him… and when he turned around she was still there, smiling at him.
