Megan BERNARDO and Ryan MICHALSKI -- Match
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, March 12, 2005 Page M6
If you love something, you can set it free, but it may need a nudge in the appropriate direction. At least that's what Megan BERNARDO reasoned as she "pushed, more than encouraged," a reluctant Ryan MICHALSKI to follow his dream and move to England to play basketball.
The 6-foot-4 athlete, whom she had been dating for five years, had recently obtained his Chartered Accountant designation and a position with Deloitte and Touche LLP. But this bean counter wasn't keen on being tied to a desk. He had been thinking about trying out for a spot on the Northampton Neptunes, ever since Friends from his days at Mount Allison University had ended up on the team and encouraged him to join them. "It was always in the back of my mind," Mr. MICHALSKI, now 26, says, "and Megan said, 'If you don't go, you'll regret it.' "
"I was worried if he didn't go, he'd regret me," Ms. BERNARDO laughs.
His employers were supportive as well, he says, guaranteeing his position for a year, so Mr. MICHALSKI decided to make the move in August of 2003.
He wasn't exactly a stranger in a strange land. "My mother's parents, five of her brothers and sisters and a whack of cousins lived within a hundred miles, and when you come from Canada, a two-hour drive isn't far."
Living and working with his former university teammates helped him feel at home too.
The biggest challenge was being away from Ms. BERNARDO, whom he had met in 1998, when they were both third-year students at Mount Allison, in Sackville, N.B.
"We did stats homework together and became Friends," says Mr. MICHALSKI, who is originally from Saint John's.
The summer after they met, he lined up what he thought was a solid job offer in Toronto, where Ms. BERNARDO lived, and called her.
"My parents always welcomed everyone into our house," Ms. BERNARDO says. "So when they heard Ryan's dad and friend Dave were here, they said, 'Bring everyone.' "
When the families were chatting, they realized that Mr. MICHALSKI's father, a professor at Memorial University in Newfoundland, knew a close family friend, Judy ROBERTS, from when she was a PhD candidate at Memorial. Both families felt an instant rapport.
The connection even led to an offer of employment for Mr. MICHALSKI, who had just learned that his original job offer had fallen through. Hearing the news, Ms. BERNARDO's parents immediately offered him summer employment at Camp Wabikon, a former Hudson's Bay post near Temagami, which they owned and operated.
That fall, the couple started dating, and by graduation in 2000, they were viewing each other in a starry new light as they toured Europe for a month. Ms. BERNARDO decided to return there after the two came back to Canada, to study Italian and formulate her future. "It was hard because Ry had just moved to Toronto and I was going away. But he was very supportive," she says.
While Mr. MICHALSKI completed his 30 months of accountancy requirements, Ms. BERNARDO searched for her niche. After travelling in Europe, she had returned to Toronto, completed the Canadian Securities Course and found work in the investment field. But she wasn't satisfied with her career decisions. "I was miserable in the city being away from what I loved, and midsummer decided I was on the wrong track. I realized that what I had been trying to get away from was what I loved and wanted to do forever."
Happily, in 2003, she joined her siblings on Wabikon's staff as an assistant director. "It's a family affair," she beams.
Meanwhile, Mr. MICHALSKI was preparing to leave the country. He had the ring and envisioned proposing at Christmas, when Ms. BERNARDO planned to visit him. But when she dashed back to the city to bid farewell two days before his departure, the catalyst of nerves and ardour spurred him to immediacy. He missed his opportunity during a romantic dinner when a group in banker's blue noisily invaded the restaurant they had chosen. He skillfully rebounded, however, and proposed later at home. After her slam-dunk response, they bounded off to his scheduled touch-football game.
Just engaged, they were soon an ocean apart. "It was tough being without Megan," he says. "She came over for a month at Christmas, and I surprised her in April."
After that brief visit, he returned to England and stayed three months longer, coaching in primary schools, a job made easier after he had interacted with campers at Wabikon. And by fall, as their wedding approached, he was back here for good, working once again as a Chartered Accountant.
On October 22, Reverend Deborah HART led the ceremony in Eglinton St. George's United Church. The processional and recessional were two versions of the Trumpet Voluntary, played by internist and family friend Lynn SARGEANT, who had performed the identical repertoire at the wedding of the bride's parents in 1969.
"As soon as it started, all of my emotions came up," says the bride, 27. Among her seven bridesmaids were five housemates from university. "It was the first time we had all been together since graduation, and I needed them with me," the new Mrs. MICHALSKI emotes, adding, "Our Friendship came before Ry and I were ever a couple."
Still, she says, nothing can match the bond she has with her husband. "We have the same Friends, are accepting of each other's lives and dreams and make each other laugh, which keeps us sane."

Maria Augusta FAGAN and Michael Claude ROGERS -- Match:
By Judith TENENBAUM, Saturday, December 10, 2005, Page M6
The sun always shines on Regatta Day in Saint John's, a municipal holiday unique in North America because weather conditions determine the date. In August, 1994, Maria FAGAN and Michael ROGERS were among the passengers in a car returning from the regatta, where Ms. FAGAN had competed. "We decided to go for a swim in a pond just outside of Saint John's, but ended up getting into a very bad car accident and never made it," he says.
The car wound up on its roof, the occupants sent to hospital, and their distraught parents meeting -- unaware of the portent -- for the first time.
That fall, Mr. ROGERS recalls, their Friendship intensified "when Maria asked me if I would be her date for graduation." She was a year older and a grade ahead, but, she admits, "I had a big crush on Mike."
The two were out for a drive couple of months later, and as she turned left at a particular intersection, Mr. ROGERS says, "I decided it was time that I became more than just Maria's prom date, and asked, 'Do you wanna try going out with me?' "
"I got butterflies in my stomach," she says. "It was very exciting."
Meanwhile, Ms. FAGAN entered a psychology program at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Still in high school, Mr. ROGERS joined her for evening study sessions at the university library, making him a campus veteran by the time he enrolled the next year to study physics.
Later, when she began a master's degree at the University of Guelph, their two-year separation was inconsequential. "You have to let the other person have freedom to grow and become whatever it is they want," Mr. ROGERS says. "In a lot of ways, we were very lucky. We didn't have to try to make it work; the shoe fit."
In September, 2002, their academic and personal aspirations flourished when both were accepted for postgraduate studies at the University of Toronto -- he as a master's student en route to a physics doctoral program and she as a PhD candidate in clinical child psychology. Two years later, Mr. ROGERS bought a ring. "I was reminded a few times over the years that I wasn't much of a romantic," he laughs. To counter that, he stashed the ring for three months until their visit home to Saint John's.
On Christmas Eve, as they drove to his parents' for dinner, they arrived at the legendary intersection of a decade ago. One hand on the wheel, he executed the same left turn, pulled out a ring box, and echoing his teenaged self, made a more enduring request: "So, do you wanna marry me?"
An intimate wedding of 30 was anticipated, but the couple were delighted with the enthusiastic response of 100 Friends and family from across North America.
On September 3, at the University of Toronto's Emmanuel College Chapel, Dr. Antoine AOUAD wed the couple. Afterwards, the assembly walked across campus to a reception in the Hart House music room. The bride describes their gift to their guests with true island pride: "Mike's mother made little jars of partridgeberry jam with the Newfoundland tartan on top."
The new Mrs. ROGERS, 28, currently holds a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Doctoral Fellowship, and sees her career as a researcher and clinical child psychologist as being portable.
Mr. ROGERS, 27, has been featured in physics journals for his pioneering research in the realm of buoyant plumes and vortex rings. He explains that, while it's of great academic interest, there are no practical applications to date. "I never got into this for the money or a job," he says with a laugh. "She'll be the moneymaker."

After the wedding, the chill is gone
James STARES, Kathy MITCHELL wed in a wintry maze of ice
By Louise BROWN, Staff Reporter
The bride wore white -- long johns.
In fact, so did the groom. The best man wore a toque and guests tucked hot pads in their mitts.
When it's 9 below Celsius at the altar, it takes a few props to keep love warm.
But romance also kindled the mood yesterday, when snow buffs Kathy MITCHELL and James STARES tied the knot in ultimate hoser style, inside an ice maze near the C.N. Tower.
"It's a true Canadian wedding," laughed the 31-year-old bride, who has heard every possible cold-related joke since the couple agreed to marry at the Pontiac Ice Maze, built this week for the Canadian International Auto Show.
"I've been called the Ice Queen, the Ice Princess, you name it, but we just did it because a friend of a friend at a publicity firm was looking for a couple to get married at the maze," said MITCHELL, a former women's hockey player who snowboards, skis and skates with her new husband. They're going to Vermont for a ski honeymoon.
"We talked it over and embraced the idea because we love the outdoors."
Mind you, the bride worried her bouquet of white hydrangeas and red roses would freeze before she could throw it. Wind scattered the rose petals and fake snow being strewn along the path by the eight flower girls and "snow boys."
And the groom cut the ice cake with a chain saw.
"This gives new meaning to the term 'having cold feet,'" joked STARES, 35, as he wielded the whining power tool through all four see-through layers.
"But despite all the glitz, we were still really getting married, so we wanted it to be meaningful," said MITCHELL, who had the Louis Armstrong hit "What a Wonderful World" playing as she emerged from the maze with her twin sister at her side, to take her place on the makeshift stage.
"We were actually thinking they were going to have a beach wedding in the Caribbean, so this was a bit of a surprise," explained Dorothy MITCHELL, mother of the bride, who clutched a red blanket over her lap in the front row of the open-air chapel with fold-out chairs and the Gardiner Expressway in the background.
"But you only live once, so it's fun."
MITCHELL and STARES both work in product management, and were introduced 18 months ago by mutual Friends who yesterday served as maid of honour and best man on the gusty stage.
The couple got engaged last December and had been thinking of getting married on a sun-baked island until approached about the frosty alternative.
"But they've both been married before in traditional church weddings, so I think they wanted to be more casual this time, and just thought this would be a lot of fun," said Bev STARES, mother of the groom.
Still, there are logistical challenges to putting your nuptials on ice:
A heated tent was provided where the 50 guests could wait until the 15-minute ceremony began.
Burlap was laid along the bride's route in the maze so her red high heels wouldn't slip on the ice.
The bride wore a heavy white fur-trimmed cape over her gown, which was bought in the Spadina fashion district and featured an unusual red top.
City hall marriage official Aestus ROGERS had to compete to be heard with the wind howling across his microphone as he read the non-denominational vows. ROGERS too wore many layers beneath a heavy cape.
Guests were handed gift-wrapped hand-warmers for inside their mitts as they watched the exchange of vows. The bride kept on her white gloves as she slipped on her wedding ring, while the groom donned his on a bare hand.
The newlyweds drove off in a car dragging ice cube trays off the bumper.
After the sub-zero service, the party proceeded to warmer digs for the reception at a King St. restaurant.
But flower girl Hannah BARRICK, the bride's 12-year-old niece, summed up the family's sentiments about the unusual ceremony.
"I think it was cool -- in both ways."

Gay couple married after ruling
Couple celebrates end of 20-year fight
Judges rewrite definition of marriage
Tracey TYLER and Tracy HUFFMAN Staff Reporters
Two gay men said "I do" yesterday, after Ontario's highest court said "they can."
Crown Attorney Michael LESHNER and his long-time partner Michael STARK were married by Mr. Justice John HAMILTON in a hastily arranged ceremony in the jury waiting room of a Toronto courthouse, as a crowd that included everyone from judges to janitors looked on.
Just hours before, the Ontario Court of Appeal rewrote the definition of marriage to include same-sex couples, saying denying gays and lesbians the ability to marry offends their dignity, discriminates on the basis of sexual orientation and violates their equality rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
A unanimous three-judge panel, made up of Chief Justice Roy McMURTRY and justices James MacPHERSON and Eileen GILLESE, then took the issue further than any other court in the world.
Gay and lesbian marriage became legal in Ontario, effective immediately.
"Michael LESHNER, will you please repeat after me," said HAMILTON, as he began the short, civil ceremony. "I do solemnly declare that I do not know of any lawful impediment why I may not be joined in matrimony to Michael Clifford STARK."
Both men repeated the declaration before pledging their vows.
"I Michael, take you Michael, to be my lawful wedded spouse," said LESHNER. "To have and to hold, from this day forward, whatever circumstances or experiences life may hold for us."
HAMILTON, an Ontario Superior Court judge, asked both men to place rings on each other's fingers, then made it official.
"By the power vested in me by the Marriage Act, I pronounce you Michael, and you Michael -- affectionately known as 'the Michaels' -- to be lawfully wedded spouses."
"You are now married," said HAMILTON, who later said it was "an honour" to perform the ceremony.
LESHNER, 55, and STARK, 45, kissed and popped champagne.
Speaking to reporters, LESHNER said he regards the court's judgment as, "Day One for millions of gays and lesbians around the world" and the culmination of a personal 20-year battle to end "legally sanctioned homophobia."
"I wanted to put a stake through that sucker," he said.
His 90-year-old mother, Ethel, who beamed and sang in her wheelchair, drew her satisfaction on a smaller scale.
"I feel wonderful, if he does. And I'm sure he does -- take a look at his face," she said.
"I can't 'rah, rah, rah.' I'm not the type of person to do that," she said. "I'm just happy my son is happy -- I know he's getting a nice guy."
While LESHNER and STARK are believed to be the first gay couple to wed after same-sex marriage became legal yesterday, they may not be the first gay Ontario couple to be legally married. That distinction appears to fall to two same-sex couples who were married in a double ceremony at Toronto's Metropolitan Community Church in January, 2001.
The appeal court ordered the province to register marriage certificates issued to those couples, Kevin BOURASSA and Joe VARNELL and Elaine and Anne VAUTOUR. The judges also ordered the clerk of the City of Toronto to issue marriage licences to LESHNER and STARK and six other couples whose licence applications were held in abeyance pending a ruling by the courts. The province and the city told the judges during a hearing in April that they would abide by whatever the appeal court decided.
Less clear is where the federal government stands.
Justice Minister Martin CAUCHON told reporters yesterday he believes Members of Parliament should have a say in the debate about same-sex marriage, but the government also sees where courts across the country are heading on the issue.
The British Columbia Court of Appeal and a Quebec Superior Court judge have also ruled the common law definition of marriage violates the Charter's equality provisions, but didn't go as far as Ontario in immediately extending marriage to same-sex couples, preferring instead to give Parliament until July, 2004 to change the law.
The Ontario Court of Appeal said there's no need to wait: Changing the definition of marriage, effective immediately, won't create any public harm.
Federal justice department spokesperson Dorette POLLARD said the government has until September 9 to decide whether to seek leave to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.
In the meantime, the government does not have the option of seeking a court injunction to stop same-sex marriages from taking place, she said.
If a further appeal to the Supreme Court is in the cards, it could return to the Court of Appeal to ask for a stay of yesterday's ruling, effectively putting it in suspension, POLLARD said.
She was unable to say how that would affect same-sex marriages that have already taken place.
Opponents of same-sex marriage, however, had no difficulty expressing an opinion on yesterday's decision.
By reformulating the definition of marriage, the appeal court ignored "centuries of precedent" and rendered "ordinary Canadians' views irrelevant," said Derek ROGUSKY, a vice-president of Focus on the Family, whose interests were represented by The Association for Marriage and the Family in Ontario, an intervenor in the case.
In its decision yesterday, written not by one judge in particular but collectively as "the court," the appeal panel changed the definition of marriage from being "the voluntary union for life of one man and one woman," to "the voluntary union for life of two persons to the exclusion of all others."
A person's sense of dignity and self worth can only be enhanced by the recognition that society gives to marriage and denying people in same-sex relationships access to that most basic of institutions violates their dignity, the court said.
"The ability to marry, and to thereby participate in this fundamental societal institution, is something that most Canadians take for granted. Same-sex couples do not; they are denied access to this institution simply on the basis of their sexual orientation."
Preventing same-sex couples from marrying perpetuates the view that they are not capable of forming loving and lasting relationships and not worthy of the same respect and recognition as heterosexual couples, the court added.
It was ruling on an appeal from an Ontario Divisional Court decision last year. The Divisional Court said the common law definition of marriage as an exclusively heterosexual union was unconstitutional, but decided 2-1 to leave it up to Parliament to rewrite the law by July, 2004.
The dissenting judge in that case, Mr. Justice Harry LAFORME, who would have changed the definition immediately, attended yesterday's ceremony.
In its 60-page decision yesterday, the judges systematically disposed of Ottawa's arguments for preserving marriage as a heterosexual domain, saying they were filled with irrelevancies, stereotypes and "circular reasoning."
The government argued that marriage has always been understood as a special kind of monogamous institution that brings the sexes together for the purposes of procreating, raising children and companionship.
That isn't something that lawmakers dreamed up; it predates the law, the government said.
Who invented the concept of marriage doesn't matter, the court said; What does is how gays and lesbians fare under a legal regime that excludes them from the institution.
The government was avoiding the main issue by arguing that marriage "just is" heterosexual and benefits society as a whole, the court said.
"The couples are not seeking to abolish the institution of marriage," wrote the judges. "They are seeking access to it."
