Daysy: How did you two meet and how long did you date before you decided you wanted to get married?
Viviane & Fabricio: We’ve met at a party through his sister whom was from my group of friends. We immediately noticed an affinity between us. Two weeks later, we saw each other in a nightclub when we shared our first kiss and from then on we started dating. Curiously, I knew his sister for a while and have been to her house a few times, met their younger brother, but never heard about Fabricio. I was completely surprised when I learned she has an older brother. Probably because by that time he was on the air force which was in another city. Everything happened so fast, within a year, on May, 4th 1990 we’ve got married. I remember by the time our parents were concerned with our decision since we were too young . We both believe that everything happens for a reason, in our case, it was meant to be.Three years later we’ve decided to start a new chapter in our lives, moving to the USA.
