AB Quintanilla and Evangelina Almeida's marriage
AB was 24 when he exchanged vows with Vangie in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1988. Evangelina Almeida, wife of AB, was also speculated to be in her early twenties. AB was a traveling musician at the time, as depicted in the drama series's first and second episodes.
The lovebirds used to live in a house near AB's parents. AB continued making music but switched careers to music producer and the second season of the series focuses on his growth as a music producer. The lovebirds appeared strong in their union during this time due to a lack of drama.
