Married To Husband / Boyfriend?

Elaine is yet to get married to the love of her life after getting engaged to her musician boyfriend, Jonathan Singletary, in 2016. 

Initially, Elaine met her future husband when she was just twelve or thirteen in the mutual church. But outside the church, they never spoke until three years. Elaine and Jonathan went to different colleges, but they only met during Christmas break. 

It was when Elaine visited her hometown in her New York, Jonathan felt something and decided to make a move on her before it was too late. So, now, his one-step has bound them in a single string.
