I will not tell you our love story, because like all real love stories – it will die with us, as it should.” – John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

While couples are exchanging candy and enjoying romantic dinners today, Coral Shores High School (CSHS) Principal Mr. Fry and his wife CSHS history teacher Mrs. Fry will not be celebrating Valentine’s Day. Instead, they say, they appreciate every day together.

The Frys, who met in their hometown high school in 1972 or 1972, do not celebrate Valentine’s Day; the couple simply does not believe in it. Despite attending different colleges, their relationship survived. They were married in 1988.

When asked, Mrs. Fry was more than willing to elaborate on why she doesn’t celebrate Valentine’s Day.

“We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day because we don’t need one special day to signify appreciation for each other,” Mrs. Fry said. “I enjoy spending casual time together rather than planning something special for a commercialized day.”

Not only does the couple enjoy their personal time together, but Mrs. Fry said she likes working with her husband every single day.

“We have a great time coaching sports and attending school functions,” Mrs. Fry said. “In fact, some of my most memorable moments were working track meets together or running with the track team across the Seven Mile Bridge.”
