STEVEN CAFIERO: Marriage, Babies,
Steven Cafiero took his girlfriend, Donnamarie Striano,
to Las Vegas in August, he wanted her to marry him then
and there. She told him she would rather wait until
family and friends could be with them. "We were more
married than most, because we lived together and we were
so happy," she said. "But I only wish I could have
fulfilled his every wish."
Mr. Cafiero and Ms. Striano, both 31, met on the
Internet three and a half years ago, and it took them a
year to meet in person. He swept her off her feet. "We
had the best lives," she said. "We did everything. We
traveled, we went out to fabulous dinners in the city. He
taught me how to play golf."
The couple lived in Whitestone, Queens, and in August
he started working as a client specialist for Aon, the
insurance broker, dealing with customer service problems.
"He just wanted to be married and have lots of babies and
travel and drink red wine," Ms. Striano said.
