Sorry, but I'm Just Not That Into Jack & Rebecca From 'This Is Us'

Sorry, but I'm Just Not That Into Jack & Rebecca From 'This Is Us' I have a confession to make — one that will very likely fall under the umbrella of “unpopular opinion” for most fans of NBC’s most tear-jerking series. So, here goes: I no longer worship at the altar of Jack and Rebecca Pearson on This Is Us. Or to put it simply, I’m just not into the main couple at the heart of the series. In full disclosure, I love the show. I even like Jack and Rebecca individually. In fact, I love Rebecca and Jack individually. What I find problematic has much more to do with the way their relationship has been aggrandized. Hear me out. Both Rebecca and Jack are imperfect people — a wholly endearing facet of This Is Us.

At Long Last Love is a 1975 American musical-comedy film written, produced, and directed by Peter Bogdanovich, and stars Burt Reynolds and Cybill Shepherd. The film attempts to pay homage to the great Hollywood musicals of the 1930s, such as Swing Time and Top Hat.

At the time, they were neighbours. Both had families and young children.

Nevertheless, Lorraine​ remembered thinking Robert had beautiful blue eyes.

"It was taboo. There was no way I was thinking [romantically] about him," she said in a French-language interview with Radio-Canada, 50 years later.

"I blocked everything. We continued with our lives."

A lucky surprise

Robert moved away in the late 1960s, and Lorraine assumed she would never see him again.

Woods finds inspiration in Mickelson's win at Pebble Beach

Woods finds inspiration in Mickelson's win at Pebble Beach Tiger Woods kept a close eye on Phil Mickelson's win at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am over the weekend in hopes of replicating his old friend's success. "My entire career, Phil will probably attest to this, we've always looked at the board to figure where one another's at," Woods told ESPN's Bob Harig on Wednesday. "So, we've always had that type of enjoyment of competing against one another. And to see what he's done or to see what he did last year in Mexico at 47 years old gave me confidence that I could somehow do it, maybe last year. And I was able to finally end my season just like he did with a win.

Decades later, after her husband died, she moved into Domaine des Trembles, a seniors' residence in Gatineau.

Then, last September, fate brought a lucky surprise: Robert, whose wife had also died, moved into the same home.

When she heard he'd moved in, Lorraine didn't hesitate. She walked right up to his room and — her heart beating fast — knocked on his door.

Soon enough, they'd picked up right where they'd left off, resuming their old conversations and filling in the blanks for each other about the years in between.

She told him about her son in Australia, how she wanted to visit him but was too frightened of the long journey to go alone.

Robert immediately said he'd go with her — and it was that moment, she said, that she realized she was in love again.

A winter wedding

In December 2018, a few days before Christmas, Lorraine and Robert made a promise to look after each other until the end of their lives.

"We were at the restaurant with the family," Lorraine recalled. "And he said to everyone, 'Do you know that Lorraine and I are getting married?'"

That's when Robert proposed.

"I don't know if you got on your knees, but it was close," Lorraine recalled, turning to her new husband. "You took my hand, then proposed to me."

The couple had a winter-themed wedding with their families three days before Christmas.
