Alan Frew - Happily married to Wife Marcy
Alan Frew is happily married to his long-term partner Marcy Mihalcheon whom he met on a blind date in 1988 through a mutual friend while traveling to Toronto. At that time, Alan had a snooker charity event and called Marcy to say that he would pick her up in the evening.
Indeed, one of their mutual friends wished Alan and Marcy would meet. And, when they finally met, Marcy had her heart leaped, and her tummy had a whirl of butterflies, which remained for the duration of the date. Interestingly, they have been inseparable since that day.
Before marriage, Marcy and Alan spent a few years in a long-distance relationship. Despite the distance being tough on both of them, Alan and Marcy always managed to find a way to make it work. The lovebirds eventually tied the knot on 23 September 2007 in a private wedding ceremony when their daughter was two.
