Stahl and Latham's love story goes all the way back to 1973 when he was scrounging for Watergate anecdotes and was advised to talk to Stahl. Their first encounter happened on the telephone, but it wasn’t the start of their love story at least not from Lesley side.

In  Aaron Latham's Words: 

How dare you call me at home? If you want to talk, call me tomorrow at the office, she barked, and then slammed down the phone.

Also, he added,

I said, my God, I’d better turn on the TV to see what this person looks like I thought, ‘She’s so beautiful. My heart stopped, my mouth dried up and I said, ‘What have I got myself into?

Though they met for dinners frequently, they didn’t see it coming. It took them two years to realize they were in love. 

Suddenly we started seeing something different from what we had been seeing—almost like the old story of the boss who marries his secretary after 35 years.

They say, when you are made for each other, nothing can separate you. Seems true now doesn't it?
