Susanna & David

I met my husband, David, while at Somerville (1984-88).

We were in the same group of friends throughout our time at university (he was a Keble physicist, and hung out with the the Somerville physicists a lot, and worked in the college bar at weekends), but didn’t really get to know each other well. I didn’t have a date for the Somerville Ball in 1988 (just after my Finals), so David joined me. It was the first time we’d spent a whole evening together. Forced to make conversation over dinner, we discovered that we had loads in common, and found ourselves walking hand in hand around the quad by 10pm! And the rest is history…we’ve been very happily married for almost 27 years!
