Sharing their love story, Ruby recalls that it was 2009 when she was a freshman at university. On a beautiful day, her best friend in class gave her dormitory room a set of invitations to a hotel and restaurant exhibition at the My Dinh National Convention Center.
At first, she didn’t go because she had to cycle from the Academy of Finance to My Dinh, but after a friend told her that there were free food and drinks at the fair, she changed her mind. “At that time, poor students only needed to hear the food, but it was free to ignore everything. So the next day, the first day of the fair, I and my friends in the room were determined to overcome our laziness to ride a bicycle to “eat festival”Ruby recalled.
At the fair, fate took a turn when she passed Brice’s cafe. At that time, Mr. Brice was giving coffee to everyone to try. Because it was too crowded, she just looked in and then left. However, how did the ghost do it, when she took 2 steps, she turned her head and saw Brice looking at her.
“We looked at each other with four eyes, he kept staring at me, then smiled, raised his paper cup and asked, “Do you want to try coffee? I asked again “Is it free?”. And when he said “Yes” I turned around. He handed himself a shot of espresso, along with his business card: “You can contact me at this information.” I thanked him and left and was not impressed with him. After that, I went back to his counter to ask for more coffee, but because it was too crowded, I stopped going to the dormitory.”Ruby smiled.

After returning home, Ms. Ruby texted Brice to thank Mr. Brice according to the business card he gave him. “Thank you for the coffee! I went back to ask for another cup but it was too crowded so I went home, have a nice day!”.
A few minutes later, Brice replied to her and thanked her for texting him. Thanks to her message, he was able to contact her – the girl who made him fall in love with lightning the first time he saw it.
“Later, he told me that he noticed me and liked me from the moment he saw me passing by the counter, so when he gave me coffee, he gave me the card. But at that time, it was crowded, but I was rude and moved too fast. I didn’t have time to ask for my phone number. I also looked for me and hoped that I would come back but didn’t see it, so I regret it forever. Who thought I would text again, it’s the right number.” Ruby said.
To this day, whenever she recalls that fateful meeting, Ruby laughs because she “died” for free things, but unexpectedly she met her future husband. Brice also told her that if he hadn’t met her at that time, he would have met her somewhere else in the end and would still love her in the end because he knew it was fate, so she “run away to escape”.
After the fateful meeting at the fair, Mr. Brice texted her every day. He asked her to help him learn Vietnamese. In return, he would help her learn English if needed. Then they had their first date to eat pizza and drink coffee after he finished the fair in Saigon and returned to Hanoi. Then he planned his next meeting for sushi.
The two regularly dated, talked in the sky and under the sea, and gradually developed feelings. Because at that time, Ruby was still a student and at first, Brice was still in Hanoi, so the two often met on weekends and drove each other around by motorbike around Hanoi for coffee and snacks.
“What makes me feel most sympathetic to him is that he is very delicate and cares to protect me from very small actions. For example, when going anywhere, he also opens the door, keeping the door for himself. When I sat at the table, he also pulled out a chair for me to sit. When crossing the street, he always pulls himself behind him to avoid the lane. Or when he sees that his shoelaces are loose, he bends down to re-tie the laces for me so that I don’t have to sit in the way… This habit has not changed until now.”sister Ruby shared.
The shortest way to the heart is through the stomach, so he used this technique to cut her down.
Although she loved Brice since she was a student, when she graduated from college, Ruby officially announced her lover to her family. Her parents were also surprised and quite shocked when she told her family that she would go to Phnom Penh with him. In particular, she was strongly opposed by her family, causing Mr. Brice to fly back to ask her family’s permission. And his sincerity and the “family meeting”, her parents agreed to let them stay together on the condition that they complete the marriage registration procedure as soon as possible.
Western husband proposes no flowers, no gifts or rings
It is known that Ruby and Brice registered their marriage in 2013, both held a wedding in Vietnam in 2014 and held a small party with his family in the US. Sharing about the proposal, Ruby said that during a walk on the beach, he hesitantly asked her “do you agree to be my wife?”. He proposed to her without flowers and gifts, rings were just feelings until he had not prepared anything. However, he then spent several months designing her wedding ring. He found and ordered gemstones by himself, then designed the ring design according to her preferences. Witnessing the process of his dedication, she was very touched.
They registered their marriage in 2013.
Currently, Ruby’s small nest has 2 children. Over 10 years together, it is inevitable that conflicts due to different viewpoints and cultures are inevitable, but she always sets the rules of respecting each other and respecting differences. In particular, if one of the two is angry, the other person should be quiet to avoid pushing the matter too far. Thanks to that, the past 10 years have been 10 years of harmony and happiness together.
“My husband and I always try to take the time to talk to each other every day, respect each other, and if we feel there is a problem, we need to say it to solve it right away, not keep it in our hearts. Always learning to improve yourself and always have something that your partner admires.
In addition, I always pull him into family activities with my two children, when the family spends quality time together, the affection also increases.” Ruby said.
She is happy because her husband loves her like a daughter.
For Ruby, Brice is a responsible and loving husband and father to his family. Outside of work, he spends all his free time with his family. He always helps her play, read books and teach her children necessary skills. Although he is not a romantic person, he often buys her gifts for no occasion, so every time she receives a gift, she is quite surprised.
Especially for more than 10 years of being married and being an American bride, she feels lucky because her parents-in-law are extremely psychological and pamper their daughter-in-law. Every time she visits her husband’s parents, they take care of her as much as possible, always instructing her husband to treat his wife well, not to let her do anything. When her mother-in-law goes shopping, she buys a lot of things for her daughter-in-law, and her father-in-law loves to cook for the whole family. That’s why she feels lucky to always be loved.
