Horseradish was more important than romance. That was the hard truth for Melissa Gold, who had a fellow very interested in her but she had to attend to business. He wanted to go out. She had to think of Passover and the Seder table.

Melissa was a graduate of Syracuse University (business studies) and a fifth generation worker in the family firm: Gold Pure Food Company. Her father is the president of the kosher condiment firm in Hempstead, New York. Millions of jars of Gold horseradish had to be ready for the holiday. She hoped that Adam would wait.

Godsend: How Josh met Amanda

Josh met his bride-to-be in 10th grade when he left the private Hebrew Academy in Great Neck, New York and moved to the town's North High. "At first I thought he was a pest," says Amanda. '"I found him to be annoying."

By 11th grade, they had become friends, and Josh Wein realized he had a crush on Amanda Levine.  It was obvious to everyone. Even their English teacher said to him, "Why don't you ask her out already?"

Amanda: "I found him to be annoying."
