Maria didn’t know how to swim. She had never had the opportunity to learn as a child. Not only that, she was afraid of the water. Every time she got into it, she felt it would engulf her and she would drown.
Ironically, Maria met and fell in love with a swimming instructor. Apparently they are found in places other than swimming pools. James was probably the only man in the world who could have made her overcome her fear of the water.
They settled on an island, had 3 wonderful children and lived happily ever after.
