By now you're hopefully familiar with our 'Love on the Streets of..." series where we spot real-life couples in some of the coolest metropolitan cities on the planet. So far, we've hit up NYC (home of Cosmo's headquarters), London, and for our third installment, we headed to beautiful Mexico City.

We scoured CDMX and scouted nine clearly-obsessed-with-each-other couples to photograph for our Summer 2024 issue and asked them about how they met, how long they’ve been together, and exactly what makes their relationships work. Our takeaway after chatting with these lovers south of the border? That we've got further proof that true love does, in fact, exist.

Our next stop is Los Angeles. Stay tuned: We may be coming to a city near you soon. ;)

Oscar, 29; María José, 29, real estate lawyers

Years together: 5

María José: We met in law school. I missed a class and I was kind of a nerd, so I asked him for his notes. But he didn’t take any, so that was a terrible approach.

Oscar: We saw each other in the hallway, and I was really ashamed because I didn’t get her notes that time. That was the starting point of our relationship.

María José: We started having cafés at university.

Oscar: Now it’s been almost one year since we became husband and wife.
