Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (also known as AOC) is on her way to marrying her fiancé Robert Riley.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez verified the announcement of their wedding on Twitter through a friend, and congratulations began to stream in. Roberts, a marketing executive, and Ocasio-Cortez, 32, met as undergrads at Boston University. They’ve been dating for a long time.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was born into a Puerto Rican household in the Bronx, met her future husband Robert while studying at Boston University. She was a sociology student at the time. In college, she majored in sociology and finance. She received a distinction in both Economics and International Relations as a double major.

She is well-known in the United States because, at the age of 29, she was the first woman elected to Congress. She was an activist and worked as a bartender and waitress before standing for Congress. In New York City, she represents the eastern Bronx, Queens, and Rikers Island. Her then-boyfriend Robert, who really sponsored her congressional campaign by designing her website, was a huge supporter.
Robert Riley, on the other hand, was born in Arizona to a wealthy family, his father being a real estate agent. Robert campaigned for Alexandria during her primary race for Congress against 10-term incumbent and Democratic heavyweight Representative Joe Crowley. Crowley’s fall in the 2018 primaries was one of the year’s biggest surprises. He also worked in the left-wing “Squad” of Democratic Socialists of America’s food service. Alexandria and Robert had split up after graduating from college, but they reconciled in New York after Robert returned from Arizona, where he worked as a website developer.
