Donna Hanover News
After a public battle over alimony, the house (she did not want to leave Gracie Mansion) and even dog support, Ms. Hanover said she never expected to fall in love again.
Then, last August, she got a phone call from Mr. Oster, her high school and college sweetheart. Mr. Oster, who is also divorced, wondered if she would be attending their 30th reunion at Stanford.
Mr. Oster, 52, is the managing partner of Barger & Wolen, a law firm, in Newport Beach, Calif. He received his law degree from the University of California at Davis. He is a son of Katherine Oster of Auburn, Calif., and the late Dr. Edwin A. Oster, who was a general practitioner in Cambrian Park, Calif.
Ms. Hanover and Mr. Oster met as members of competing high school debate teams, she in Sunnyvale, Calif., and he in Los Gatos, Calif.”She was very quick-witted, very intelligent,” he remembered. Even today, both have a fighting spirit in their voices, as if they still love debating.
Both came from ”hardworking, middle-class families,” she said, the kind of homes where children and even visitors were assigned chores.
”I remember one Saturday during our senior year in high school when he arrived to take me on a date,” Ms. Hanover said. ”I was still doing my chores so my Mom handed him a Windex bottle, suggesting he go to work if he wanted to take me out anytime soon.”
On weekends, the couple would often team up and compete in car rallies, scavenger hunts by car. They rarely won prizes. ”But we won each others’ affection,” she said.
They broke up during their freshman year at Stanford. And when he called last summer, it was the first time the two had spoken since college.
Soon after, he traveled to New York and took her for a cup of coffee, then a long walk in Central Park. ”We talked about our children, our jobs, what had happened in the interim years, the state of the world,” she recalled. ”There was an immediate re-attraction.
”We were very good partners during the car rallies, and that has come to light again. We feel we are still very good partners.”
A few days before the wedding, speaking from a cab in New Jersey, each made a list of things he or she likes about the other.
Mr. Oster: ”Compassion, thoughtfulness, intelligence, wit, gentleness and grace.”
Ms. Hanover: ”Integrity, intelligence, kindness, sense of humor and the fact that he is good to my children.”
The bridegroom, who has three daughters, and the bride, who has a son and a daughter, plan to be bicoastal, they said, traveling between Newport Beach and New York.
