• Betina is a VP at Citigroup. Hassan is the owner of entertainment consulting company BegBiz. Their love began with an introduction from a mutual friend. The electricity between the two was undeniable, but patience proved to be a virtue— they dated for eight years before getting engaged. On their wedding day, Betina was sad her childhood friend couldn’t attend. Knowing this, Hassan had the woman listen to the entire ceremony on his phone, which was hidden in his jacket pocket. Betina loves that she and her husband “have similar values.”
