    I've tears in my eyes making this post. Paul and I met one fateful Friday night and started living together 21 years ago 6 days after we met. Making the realtionship legal has never been that important but tonight I asked him to marry me and he wept then said yes. I'm making the arrangements for November when some of our family are over visting from the UK. :biggrin1:

    Never felt so proud and happy.

    I love seeing and hearing about long lasting gay relationships. It gives me faith in what I want and believe relationships should be. If that just made any sense. Didn't know how to word it with out getting all deep.

    Hey Davey: Congratulations to you and Paul! Some of us are lucky enough to find a partner who we can hang with and who can hang with us, not just when things are great, but through all the hurdles and challenges that life throws at us. Best of luck to both of you!
