Todd and Rose Anne both worked for TV Guide in the 1980s, but it was a co-worker friend, Emma who would bring them together, writes Kellie Patrick Gates for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Rose Anne, from Newtown Square, divorced in 1991. She and Todd had both left TV Guide by then, but Emma suggested they all go out to dinner.

Todd and Rose Anne clicked and with some more prodding from Emma, the couple started dating, including visiting each other’s church services. She’s Catholic. He’s Lutheran.

“I got the feeling pretty quickly that this one was the keeper,” Todd said.

Todd had been through some rough times, describing himself as “wounded and damaged”.

His father was verbally abusive and in 1980, he lost his best friend and confidant in a car accident. He found himself turning to alcohol.

Rose Anne was centered with strong religious beliefs.

Their feelings synched up, Rose Anne said.

“There are times when I can be too serious, and he can make me be not so serious.”

They married on July 9, 1993 and bought a Newtown Square home together in 1996.

Now retired at 65 and 70, they will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary on July 9.
