Ben Stokes was just starting off with his career when he met his future wife. She sent a friend request on Facebook and that’s how it all started off. Stokes later took her to some of his games and taught her some of the finer strategies and points.
The pair maintained a long-distance relationship in the initial stages as Stokes was living in Durham and Clare was studying in Taunton. After five months of knowing each other, they made their relationship official on Facebook.
