Lauren Shell and Seth Ratner dated on and off after meeting on a Disney cruise in 2014. A chance encounter at a Billy Joel concert in 2018 finally sealed their romance.
Lauren Lazare Shell wasn’t looking for love when she met Seth Michael Ratner on a Disney cruise in February 2014.
Ms. Shell, who at the time was separated from her previous husband and casually dating someone else, had come on the cruise with her two sons. Mr. Ratner, then a recently divorced father of a son and daughter, was traveling with his children. His son and her eldest boy recognized each other from day camp and introduced the two.
After the cruise, they talked on the phone and via text message for months. In September 2014 Mr. Ratner, who was living between Manhattan and Roslyn, N.Y., asked Ms. Shell, who was living in Manhattan, for places where he could take his children over Christmas break. By then she had ended her other relationship, and when she told him that she and her family planned to stay at her time share in Aruba, he decided to rent a unit in the same resort.
