After graduating from Cherry Creek High School, Mandy went to the University of Colorado, while Kyle went to Texas, Austin.

The lovebirds reunited when Mandy was at her worst as her mother was battling cancer, and Kyle stood beside her like a pillar giving her strength.

Kyle would fly over to her on the weekends, take her for walks, and write her letters when they were apart.

The horrible experience rekindled their love and finally brought them even closer than before.

Marriage With Kyle Shanahan

Since his high school days, Kyle had been dating his childhood sweetheart, Mandy.

But he had no plans of getting married at a young age. However, seeing Mandy go through her mother’s illness and death made him change his mind. 

Finally, Kyle tied the knot with Mandy on July 5, 2005, as he felt marriage with the right person is always “OK.” At that time, Mandy was just 25 years old.

Kyle and his wife, Mandy, have lived 18 years of a married life without disputes or separation rumors.

Unfortunately, after three months of diagnosis, Nancy, at the age of 57, succumbed to her illness on January 31, 2002.

As a boyfriend, Kyle stayed beside his grieving girlfriend. Mandy realized that she could not imagine being with anyone else but him; call it her vulnerability or her destiny. They started dating again.
