Eduardo and Laisa Mireya met while talking on the telephone. She lived in Arizona, he in Colorado. They talked for two months, then she asked him for marriage, and he accepted. Four months later, Dec. 12, 2007, Laisa came to Colorado to meet Eduardo in person. They went to dinner and got to know each other better. They were married Dec. 13 in the Glenwood Springs court.
