Allegra & Natasha
Every so often life comes along and gives you something unexpected yet wonderful! Tash and I were mutual friends who developed a timely romance that is often described as "few and far"! She has been the manifestation of my most sought-after affirmation: that real love does exist. We are proof that love indeed knows no boundaries and no gender.
Mark & James
We met at the mailbox of our apartment building. If ever there was love at first sight, this was it. We had a commitment ceremony after 2 years, then married after 17 years. We are approaching our second anniversary. We have always had the support of our families. Our parents have been married 54 and 48 years. We had good role models! We now have 10 nieces and nephews who have never known us as anything other than a couple.
