  1. Brianna McWhorter: "We met at work, it sure was fate. I was dressed like a clown (literally), but then we began to date. He saw past my makeup, and work uniform. He helped me wake up and see his charm. So we have been together, for over a year now. Not a day goes by that I don't say, "wow!"
  2. Melanie Phillips: "We spotted each other as we were walking to our cars. We locked eyes and he was distracted he got into his car on the passenger side. The next day he showed up on my door step and we have been together ever since. 10 years and two kids later we still adore each other."
  3. Elyse Marie Lohrbach: "We had been in love for five years when he told me he was gay. Never had either of us felt love that legends are made of until we had to let each other go. We still love each other today, and yes, that love is not the same as it was. But, poems and songs should be written about it anyway for being noble, selfless and true. And the most legendary love of all is the love I was able to find for myself in the end."
  4. Suzanne Traub Hesselbrock: "Our love story began 20 years ago when I met my future husband while on a date with someone else as a result of a dare involving answering a personal ad! That date didn't work out by my husband, who worked as a security guard at the time, safely walked me to my car, asked me out, and 1.5 years later we were married! Just 4 years into our marriage we suffered an unimaginable loss that would destroy most couples when our almost 3 year old son passed away from a rare genetic illness called Tay-Sachs Disease. We fought on through the turmoil of losing him and went on to have 2 more amazing and healthy children. After 20 years together, almost 19 of them married, we are still going strong and can say, "What doesn't break us can only make us stronger."
