1. Milagros Melendez (32) and Shean Leigon (26) of Las Vegas, Nevada

I learned in my 30s what being in love was really about: Respect for each other. Once you have respect, the rest comes easily. We can be ourselves with each other, knowing that we will not be judged, no matter how crazy or silly we get. Being in love is great, but being loved is AMAZING! —Milagros

2. Laura Avina (34) & Everardo Garcia (23) of Los Angeles, California

We share a love of the arts and that love transmits into the intense and profound love we have for each other. We’re both entertainers—he’s a musician and I’m a burlesque performer. = Plus, we’re both Cancers, so our crab signs result in a dynamic relationship. —Laura

3. Cindy Diaz (31) & Carlos Perez (32) of Queens, New York

We first met while working in our high school library. We liked each other, but my mom didn’t allow me to date. We lost touch, but 12 years later, we rekindled our friendship after running into each other in church. Now we’re in a romantic relationship! —Cindy

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
