Bethany (29 and a resident physician) and Nicholas (29 and a pharmacist) got to know each other in college and grew close through a shared physics lab junior year, but they didn’t start dating until the beginning of their senior year. They then spent four years apart as she went to off to med school (at SIU) and he went to pharmacy school (at UIC), where they lived over five hours apart from one another. When she graduated, Bethany moved to Chicago to be with Nick, and eventually they moved in together. Nick proposed on their seven-year-anniversary after a year of shopping with her closest friends to find the right ring.
