For many, it takes rummaging through a plethora of suitable partners before finding the right person to start a family.
Maria, however, didn't have to put herself through the experience of nitpicking husband prospects to share "I Dos" at the wedding. Thankfully for her, her first boyfriend would become her only.
Speaking about her very first date with her husband Dale Stephanos - an illustrator by profession whose work has featured in magazines such as Rolling Stone, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated - in 2016 WCVB interview, she shared:-
"My boyfriend at the time (now my husband) had just moved to Groveland from Swampscott and I think we walked home together in two feet of snow."
By her admission, that's at least what their kids - Isabella, age 20 & Liam, age 17 - grew up believing.
