“It wasn’t quite love at first sight, but there was definitely an attraction!” Roz told BT of meeting Ian at her parents’ hotel in early 1967. “One day I went to a dance and Ian took me home — the rest is history. It was quite a whirlwind romance.”
“It was just one of those things — we drifted apart and decided to call it a day,” Roz said. “We stayed friendly, and we’d see each other at family gatherings.”
They spent so much time with each other over the course of the wedding that they kept it up once they returned home, going to shows and out to dinner.
“We waited a while to tell people, but I think my son Ian had his suspicions at the wedding that there might be a spark between us again,” Roz said.
They moved back in together in May 2014, and decided to remarry in Jan. 2015.
“Our first wedding was a big traditional affair, so we didn’t feel the need to do it again — we decided to keep it quite low-key with our family and friends,” said Roz, who now wears her original wedding ring again. “Everyone said it was such a lovely romantic story — I never thought we’d get married again, but I’m so happy that we did.”
