They were born in 1936, attended a school where boys and girls were segregated. They lived around the corner from each other in NYC, but never played together. They walked up to the same altar to receive their First Communion on the same day. They didn't notice each other. Why would they? He was a boy and she was a girl. Girls were no fun and boys were stupid.
