Soon we’ll be all caught up in Legal Eagle Wedding Watch. Here are the three couples for the weekend of December 23-24, 2006:
Discussion of these couples appears after the jump.
1. Kathryn Connor, John Ridley Jr.
Résumé score: 7.8. Neither Kathryn nor John is a lawyer; we’ve included them because of a dearth of lawyer couples for this week (and because both of their fathers are lawyers). Kathryn is a Hamilton grad and first-grade teacher. John is an Ohio Wesleyan grad, who sells access to websites containing data about hedge funds.
Family score: 8.4. Her father is of counsel to an admiralty law firm; her mother is a special education teacher. His father is a partner in Drinker, Biddle & Reath (nice); his mother is an interior designer.
Balance score: 8.5. It’s nice that both of their dads are lawyers.
Overall score: 8.23.
2. Ilyse Langer, Steve Metzger
Résumé score: 8.6. She’s a Barnard grad (but her current occupation is unspecified). He’s a Tufts and Hofstra law grad, now at Schulte Roth & Zabel.
Family score: 8.1. Her father is a sales rep for a courier service; her mother is an ESL teacher in Queens. His mother is a resource specialist at a magnet school; his father is an assistant principal at a high school.
Balance score: 8.4.
Overall score: 8.37.
Additional comments: The officiant was Rabbi Steven Graber. Is he any relation to the sexy Judge Susan Graber (9th Cir.)?
3. Nancy Montgomery, Leonard Lombard
Résumé score: 8.2. She’s an associate professor of adolescent education at St. John’s. She graduated from Indiana University and received a Ph.D. in English education from NYU. He’s a real estate lawyer and broker, a graduate of Queens College and Boston University School of Law. (Both are a bit older: she’s 54, and he’s 63.)
Family score: 8.5. Her father is the retied CEO of an ad agency; her mother is a retired high school music teacher. His late father was a cardiologist, and his late mother was an artist.
Balance score: 8.3.
Overall score: 8.33.
