Her Parent’s Marriage is Still Going Strong
Genevieve Mecher’s parents have been married for over a decade, and their union is still going strong. The two were reported to have met around 2006 while functioning as members of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Their common interest in politics played a big role in bringing the couple together.
According to reports, Gregory fell for Jen in 2006 after she gave him the wrong direction to a very crucial political event; this happened over the phone. However, the misinformation didn’t upset Gregory as expected; instead, the fact that he was already attracted to Jen made him forgive her instantly.
The duo eventually went on their first date and commenced a romantic relationship that led to a wedding on the 8th of May 2010 after four years of dating. Their wedding ceremony was a private affair hosted in Maryland, precisely at the Woodlawn Farm in Ridge. Only family, close friends, and associated were invited. A Protestant minister officiated the ceremony.
The couple already spent five years as man and wife before their first child, Genevieve Mecher, appeared in 2015. Another four years passed before they welcomed their second child, Matthew, in 2019. It has been twelve years of marital bliss, and the couple’s union is still as strong as ever – no cheating scandal, no attempted divorce, and no reported controversies. Jen and Gregory look set to take it as far into the future as possible.
