Gaines and Marina met in the summer of 2010 while Marina was doing research at NYU, after which she returned to Brazil. Following several years of continued friendship and multiple international visits, they were reunited in Brazil early 2018. On December 1, 2018 the couple was married in a small civil service, performed by long-time friend Sean Troxel, at Baraco Restaurant in New York City for friends and family who could not attend the ceremony in Brazil. The couple lives in New York City, where Gaines works as an audio engineer for New York Public Radio and The Public Theatre. Marina and Gaines thank their families and friends for all the love and incredible support during this time.
