Favorite Couple: Diane & Les Corieri, Co-owners, Evening Entertainment Group
How long have you been married? 26 years. Time flies when you’re having fun!
Key to a successful marriage? Four simple words: Separate closets, separate restrooms.
Favorite thing about one another? We make each other laugh. Ever since we first met as young 20-somethings, no matter how stressful life gets, I love that we can always lighten our day with laughter.
Favorite date night: Staying home and cooking and watching a movie or just hanging out. It sounds boring, but considering we are out and about all the time for work, we really cherish any downtime we get.
Scenic spot: We are both transplanted Midwesterners, so we love spending time at our summer cabin in Idaho.
Spot to spend a Sunday morning: Diane: Les likes to get up and go watch football with friends, but I’m all about lounging around at home in my PJ’s, usually cooking something. That is my creative outlet.
