Sam told Cosmopolitan: "She was the first person I met when I walked in the door, and we talked all night, and I ended up driving her home because her friend wanted to leave.

"And on the way home [after I dropped her off], I called my friend—it was late too, because we talked a long time—and I left a voicemail and said, "I just wanted to go on the record to say, this has never happened to me before and I guess I wouldn't believe in this until it happened"—it was love at first sight. Love at first sight is real. It happened to me."

"By the time I met my wife, I wasn't thinking that marriage would even be a thing," he added. "I didn't mind the concept of having a partner for the rest of my life but I wasn't sure about the whole legal aspect of it. But when I met my wife, I knew immediately that my life would be very heavily impacted by this woman. And then shortly thereafter knew it was a done deal."
