It may seem impossible, but last month, the first couple to marry after meeting online celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary, according to a story in the Chicago Tribune. It may seem odd these days, but this 1983 story was a big deal back in its day. According to the news story:
Chris and Pam’s courtship and wedding caused a bit of a media frenzy. The couple appeared on “Good Morning America,” “The Phil Donahue Show,” “20/20” and in numerous magazine and newspaper articles, including a Chicago Tribune story on Jan. 26, 1983, headlined “Cupid and Computers Conquer All.”
The couple met on CompuServe, using a program called CB Simulator.
They are trailblazers in more ways than one.
