Guillermo was a 21 year old college student and Teresita, the girl who caught his attention everyday, was 14. (Stop. Wait. It’s a beautiful story. I promise. Keep reading.) Guillermo had rented a room in Teresita’s home. So he did the only thing that a nice young man could do. He asked Teresita’s parents permission to ask her out. They said, “Yes.” But when Guillermo asked Teresita, her response went along the lines of, “I guess so.”
Their dates, if you could call them that, were more like play dates that were highly supervised. Their first kiss would not be until months later because Teresita loved him as friend. In fact, Teresita would take him to teacher conferences saying that he was her brother. One teacher fell for his charms and changed her F to a B-. They grew up listening to the Beatles and taking Karate Classes together and they broke up a lot. Of course Teresita fell in love with him. He was noble, forgiving and an excellent son. If to others he portrayed himself as tough, with her, he showed his emotions. Now she was 21 and he was almost 28.
Guillermo graduated and was offered a job as manager for a chain of stores. They were broken up. But Guillermo knew that Teresita had always been the one. So before leaving to Mexico City for his job training, he knocked on her door and asked her to marry him. Teresita said, “Come back tomorrow. I’ll think about it.” Guillermo did and Teresita said, “Yes,” because of course she loved him. She was ready to marry him.
But Teresita’s father was not ready to hand over his daughter so fast. He told them that they would have to wait nine months before getting married. That way if there was a reason they had to get married, everyone would know. Guillermo told him, “We can wait a year.” They didn’t. Guillermo went for training for 6 months and three months later they were married. And 5 years after that, they were blessed with a little girl, Paulina. And then Juana Maria and then Nora. Guillermo and Teresita have been married for 30 years.
