    From the good OLD days:
    Natalia Bestemianova is married to Igor Bobrin (has been since the days they were both competitors), while
    Marina Klimova is married to Sergey Ponomarenko.

    They went to vacation together and judging from their general behavior/looks I think they really are a couple, but I can't remember where I read it that they actually are.

    If it's true that it actually is platonic it means
    a. they don't regard themselves as (sexually) attractive
    b. see each other as brother and sister
    c. Andrew is gay
    d. they aren't a couple anymore

    Since I think that none of the above is true I'd say that it's stretching the truth... IMO, Americans are more conservative than us Europeans when it comes to living together before marriage especially at their age. So they're probably afraid to admit that they're actually living together.

    That has to go down in history as one of the weirdest articles out there...why publish such a line? There are plenty of skaters whose living situations we are not sure of, while there are a few examples of unmarried couples who talk about living together (ie Charlie and Tanith, who have a condo together)

    There was an interview with Scali after he and Faiella stopped competing and in Detroit to join Krylova/Camarlengo's team in which he said he was hoping to find love, or fall in love, or something to that effect, which aren't usually the words of someone in a relationship.

    If you're really not in a relationship with your skating partner, and everyone assumes you are, it could be to set the record straight for the benefit of the person you're actually in a relationship with. I don't know if that's the case with W/P, but there are valid reasons in general.

    Who can forget Rena Inoue and John Baldwin, who famously had a marriage proposal on ice after their 2010 Nationals Pairs Freeskate performance? They now have a baby girl. Not sure if they have had the marriage ceremony or not, but they have been together for many years and have built a beautiful home together in SoCal.

    Tiffany Vise and Don Baldwin are also an off-ice couple and skate together as a pair team.

    I always thought Weaver and Poje were a couple since they have a lot of PDA going on when they show backstage shots..

    The picture of the two of them as her facebook profile picture also looks VERY cozy and couple-ish.

    Except they aren't American. At least Andrew isn't.

    I'm not so sure if they're a couple. I saw them a lot at the GPF...in the stands, at the official hotel and the airport. (No I wasn't stalking them, but they seemed to be everywhere! :lol:) They clearly did everything together, but I saw nothing to make me think there was a romantic relationship. At all.

    I'm sure I got that impression from one of the early GP comps where the commentator mentioned something along the lines of he was dating Madison and they wanted to skate together :shuffle:

    I think it was mentioned earlier that Evan is dating a US singles skater who I think is extraordinarily beautiful, but right now I can't remember her name :duh:

    Is Michal Brezina with Isabella Tobias? I saw them together at Europeans in Sheffield. I then saw him pursuing Ekaterina Brobova later on that night. Seems to have a thing for pretty blonde ice dancers.

    It's not gossip/slanderous if it's true.

    Even if it's true doesn't make them of age.

    But it's not forbidden to TALK about underaged skaters, it's forbidden to spread gossip about them, so if something's confirmed as truth, we're free to discuss. Just saying.

    I may be incorrect, however my interpretation on that rule and how it applies to this thread (and the forum in general) talking about the dating life of an underage person is not tollerated.
    Whether the information is confirmed as true or not, I would agree that discussing the dating life of children is not appropriate.

    Do you mean....Amanda Evora? She's still with Mark Ladwig. I think you mean somebody else.

    She skates with Mark Ladwig, but she was dating Jeremy Barrett. And they recently broke up :(

    I think they are talking about dating, not skating. She's still skating with Ladwig, but was dating Barrett. Weren't they engaged, at some point?
