Jen and Izzy are the latest "LI-Kick Couple" to get engaged. Their love story began on the volleyball court. Here is their love story in Jen's words.
"A friend asked me to sub for a kickball game where I met some people who eventually convinced me to join their volleyball team too. I was just starting a new job so I was in a good place in life, however the men I had been going on dates with weren’t ready for the type of commitment I was looking for. The first night of volleyball is when my life completely changed. I met Izzy who had joined the team via a friend, similar to how I joined. I have never smiled so much during volleyball. I would always hear Izzy shout words of encouragement and we started to hang out more, first after the games with our team, and then more and more one-on-one. We started officially dating a month later and 2 years later we got engaged. If you were to ask me where I'd meet my future husband, I would have never thought it'd be at an adult sports league, but it's where I met Izzy and it changed my world."
A friend asked me to join his volleyball team. I was busy with school, but I liked the idea of doing something other than work and schoolwork. At the first game, Jen immediately caught my eye. Before and after games, our team would meet up for a few drinks, and that's where I made it a point to get to know Jen on a more personal level. I can't believe we'd be engaged two years later and I never would of thought it would be because of a volleyball league.
If he isn't on a field, court or bar, Sal is most likely on his couch catching up on the latest episode of "The Bachelor", this binge watching behavior isn't just mindless junkfood for the brain, its an opportunity to do oppositional research. While "The Bachelor" has the benefit of casting the most eligible 'contestants', the ability to take couples on lavish helicopter dates and travel to exotic locations, just 1 couple in "The Bachelor" history remains married till this day and in fact has led to 14 broken engagements. When adding "The Bachelorette" to the mix, the number of married couples increases to 5 (while the broken engagements becomes 30). Perhaps this lends credance to our theory that the couple that plays together, stays together.
