When Omar Anani first met his wife, Namira Islam Anani, he was instantly smitten. But for Namira, it took a literal wake-up call to realize that he was the one.
In a StoryCorps conversation last month, Omar, 39, and Namira, 33, shared their love story from Detroit, where he works as a restaurant owner and chef and she's a nonprofit lawyer.
After meeting on a dating app, the couple went on their first date in August 2019.
A week later, Namira asked Omar for a favor.
"I had asked you to wake me up early, and then you did," Namira said.
