Once you read the above comic you'll probably appreciate this background Jui told us about their relationship:
"We overlapped for one year in Beijing when we were 12 before she moved back to Michigan and I moved back to Ohio. I guess you could say we were middle school sweethearts (I took her to the end-of-year formal after all). We kept in touch over the years through the letters and would grab a meal if we ever crossed paths, but for the next 15 years, one of us always had a significant other.
We were finally both single at the same time when we were 27. She was working in LA and my parents were living in San Diego. She told me to come visit the next time I was seeing my folks. I did, and the rest is history!"
