Ms. Zarin and Mr. Groberg met at a restaurant in Washington in October 2014. They were each invited to a large social gathering there by the same mutual friend.
At the time, Mr. Groberg, who lived in nearby Bethesda, Md., was receiving treatment for his war injury at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he had undergone more than 30 surgeries over two years. He had not yet been retired by the Army.
Ms. Zarin, who was living in Washington, was sitting outside on the patio and dropped her cellphone by accident at precisely the same time as Mr. Groberg walked past her.
He picked up the phone and while handing it back thought to himself, “Oh man, she’s hot.”
Ms. Zarin was thinking much the same. “I thought he was very handsome,” she said. “I hoped to meet him when we went inside.”
As it turned out, she never got the chance. When Mr. Groberg walked out the door to run an errand, Ms. Zarin thought he had gone home, and she soon departed, more than a bit disappointed.
But the next day, Mr. Groberg called, explaining that he had returned, and when he didn’t see her, asked their mutual friend for her number. Two days later, they went on a first date to a French restaurant in Washington.
“I found him to be very smart, very gregarious and at the same time, very warm,” Ms. Zarin said.
Mr. Groberg liked what he found as well. “She was beautiful and super sweet,” he said. “She was also very funny, and we had some great conversations.”
They became an instant item, and were dating for 14 months when Mr. Groberg received a call from Washington telling him that he had been chosen as a Medal of Honor recipient.
“It was a very emotional ceremony,” said Mr. Groberg, who donated his medal to Fort Carson, where it remains on display.
The couple were engaged in December 2016, and in 2017, they embarked on a U.S.O. tour to Afghanistan, Iraq, Abu Dhabi, Spain and Poland.
The couple’s timing was off in January 2015 after they were first introduced online and then met over a beer at Duboce Park Cafe in San Francisco.
“I had just gotten out of a pretty serious relationship,” said Ms. Schumer, who dated Ms. Weiland for about a month. “She asked where it was going, and I just wasn’t ready.”
In May 2016, Ms. Weiland reached out to her on Facebook.
“What’s the statute of limitations on getting a cup of coffee?” Ms. Weiland said.
Ms. Schumer said she was “thrilled” to hear from her, and they soon met for dinner at Ragazza in Lower Haight in San Francisco.
“I compare her to two literary characters,” Ms. Schumer said. “Scout from ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ and Elizabeth Bennet from ‘Pride and Prejudice.’ She has the integrity of Scout and the stubbornness of Elizabeth Bennet.”
When Ms. Schumer arrived at dinner, a quotation from Mr. Darcy, another character from “Pride and Prejudice,” was weighing on her: “My good opinion once lost is lost forever.”
But her concerns quickly dissolved. “Honestly I remember us gazing at each other during dinner,” Ms. Schumer said, and they began hanging out.
In July, when Ms. Weiland mentioned that Crater Lake National Park in Oregon was on her bucket list, Ms. Schumer quickly said, “O.K., let’s go,” and they embarked on a seven-hour car ride in Ms. Schumer’s Volkswagen Golf named Schmidt.
The night before they got to the lake they stopped at an Airbnb tepee two hours away. Ms. Weiland built a fire and cooked Hebrew National hot dogs on a stick, explaining they were her favorite food.
“And being a girl from Brooklyn, meeting someone with a fondness for Hebrew National, I knew she was someone special,” Ms. Schumer said.
The next morning they parked at the top of the caldera and hiked down to the lake.
“It’s stunning, it’s huge, it’s massive,” Ms. Weiland said. “The water is so, so blue. Alison loves to swim, and she decided we had to go swimming.”
They decided to jump into the lake — and further into the relationship.
“We thought it would be a summer romance,” said Ms. Weiland, who knew that Ms. Schumer would move back to New York that fall.
