Honoring our Past, Celebrating our Present, Creating our Future

Valentines 2008

Stephen and Teresa Wee

Our story began at the University of Hawai`i Mānoa campus in 1972. We were premed/biology majors and both need help with physics. With our large undergraduate classes, Theresa never even noticed her future husband, Stephen. We met during a study session for the "physics impaired." We began to study together but always maintained a strict platonic relationship. This routine continued throughout undergraduate as well as through medical school at the UH. As we entered our final year of medical school, we began to plan for our residency programs on the mainland. By now, our friendship had blossomed, but still no "official" date after all those years. Theresa though Stephen would make a great husband for someone, but certainly not for her. They considered themselves like brother and sister. Our turning point came at Christmas 1978, perhaps our last Christmas together for a while. Stephen came to a family dinner with Theresa and was introduced strictly as a friend, which everyone went along with. That evening, after dinner, we went to Ala Moana Hotel to catch the Brothers Cazimero, still not an official date. Stephen and Theresa are now both physicians and have practiced medicine in the same office for 20 years. We love to work together but cherish the time with our four children the most. We look forward to our next 25 years together all the joy and surprises that are still in store for us.
