For Kristine and Don, it was love at first sight. Kristine shares, "We were classmates in first year college. Don said, the first time he saw me, he told himself that I'm the one he'll marry. Since then, he pursued me, and we were a couple by December." The two dated for 12 years, and according to them, their relationship was breezy.
Don proposed to Kristine at the place were they had their first date. Kristine narrates, "On the morning of my birthday, he asked me to go with him to a shop near our school for an errand he had to do for his dad. When we were near, he said he wanted to go to the toilet, and so we stopped at Mc Donald's outside University of Sto. Tomas. As we were about to eat, he showed me the ring, and had me in tears. He chose that same McDonald's branch where he first treated me for breakfast when he was courting me in 2000. We then spent the morning walking around the university and reminiscing."
