Gage and Lili met during their time in the Marine Corps. When I asked Lili about their love story she said "Throughout our entire Marine Corps career we "just" missed meeting each other. We were almost deployed twice and when I came back from my Japan deployment I saw Gage walking with a cane. I thought dang what a fox!"
Their mutual friends tried setting them up but Gage said he would never date another marine. Lili decided to go for it anyway and messaged him. She found out they both had military related surgeries. They clicked immediately and have been inseparable ever since. She said as soon she met him she felt like she knew him her whole life.
