Love Notes: Liz & Ed – Married 30+ Years
How did you and Ed meet?
Liz: I was working at the Hungry Tiger in Westwood as a cocktail waitress, and I was married to someone else, and it wasn’t really going very well. Ed was a friend of one of the bartenders that I worked with, so he would come into the bar. He was a really good looking guy, nice guy, and all that. So that’s how I met him. He was a friend of a guy I worked with. Then he came to work at the Hungry Tiger as a bartender.
When did you know he was the one?
Liz: I guess I knew it before I knew it, because I was telling people ‘he’s the kind of guy you should marry.’ So I guess in my mind I’d already figured out that I was married to the wrong kind of guy, and he was the kind of guy women should marry. So I have to think that I knew that, but actually, the thought of marriage hadn’t really crossed my mind because I had a lot of baggage around marriage that took me a number of years to get over. Ms. T: From your first marriage? Liz: Yeah, and when I kind of surmised that Ed was going to propose, I mean I was panic-stricken. ‘Oh my god, what will I say? I don’t know if I want to get married. I don’t want to not be with him, but I don’t know if I want to be married. Because when you get married, that’s when they do the weird shit.’
