Working under the same company gave them a lot of time together, and their little romantic relationship went on to be strong enough for them to take it seriously. 

Rhonda already had a daughter from her previous relationship before Troy; her name is Rachel. After a steady relationship and coming out in public in 1998, this couple decided to exchange the marital vows after Troy asked the big question, and Rhonda was all excited and agreed. This exchange of vows transpired in front of their friends and family members at Troy’s mansion situated in Plano, Texas.
