It seems Paul Forziano and Hava Samuels were made for each other. She giggled at his knock-knock jokes and he just thought she was beautiful.
The pair met nearly three years ago and talked about marriage for quite some time before actually standing in front of the preacher last month.
Paul and Hava spend their days together but state law requires they return to their respective state sanctioned non-profit facilities at night. You see both are developmentally disabled.
The couple and their parents are challenging the policy in the first lawsuit of its kind in the nation.
The facilities have differing reasons for disallowing the two to be together at night. The home Forziano lives in says people who need to live in a group home aren't capable of being married and Samuels' home argues she doesn't have the mental capacity to consent to sex.
The case will be a strong test of the Americans With Disabilities Act.
The ADA states that public entities have to make exceptions in some cases to avoid discrimination.
As for the couple, they just want to be able to stay together. "I'm not happy. We live apart," Samuels pointed out. Forziano added "we're very sad when we leave each other, I want to live with my wife, because I love her."
