You could say the love between Jenny MacLean and Edward White is rock solid.
After meeting on the curling ice seven years ago, they have been celebrating their love of the game and each other ever since.
Just a year out of high school, White of Fredericton, N.B., was taking part in a curling tournament in early February at the Silver Fox Curling Club when he looked over and noticed MacLean of Summerside on another team.
White worked up the courage to go over and talk to MacLean.
“I’m usually a pretty shy guy,’’ White told The Guardian on Thursday. “Both of our teams were in the semifinals, and her team was warming up. For some reason, I saw them there and walked over and said (to Jenny) ‘I bet I can do more pushups than you’.’’
It was said in pure fun but MacLean was smitten by her suitor.
“I would say (it was love at first sight),’’ she said. “We didn’t really talk the rest of that day, (but) the next day, Ed asked me if I wanted to go for lunch before he went back to Fredericton. We just kept talking since then.’’
The newlywed couple recently won the P.E.I. mixed doubles curling championship at the Silver Fox and will represent the province at the nationals in Portage La Prairie, Man., in March.
