I love you Marty. You make us a family. You support and defend, love and laugh. You bring me pride. You give unconditionally. I choose you not only on Valentine’s Day, but for the past 18 years, and always.
With love,
Mark.

Christopher,
Hard to believe that we have been together for over a year now and I will say the best year in my life. Gay Pride in Lansing was the highlight of last year when we went through the “Special” Ceremony.
I will love you forever and ten days after forever.
Greg

KC and I have been together for over 3 years now. In God’s eyes and in our hearts, we are married. Totally committed to one another… through thick or thin. In sickness and in health. Til death do us part. And even then, I know KC will find me again and be by my side.
KC never gave up on me. Took her three and a half months to convince me that she didn’t have a “third eye.” She made me laugh during a time in my life that I never thought I had it in me. I have “come home” finally. I have come home to the most beautiful, courageous, unselfish heart that I have ever known. She is my brave soldier. My friend. My lover. My partner.
I have never loved more authentically. I have never trusted someone so completely. The moment I let her into my life was the moment I began to live my life.
I love you, KC. Today. Tomorrow. For always!

What tree did you want to carve RG&CM on?

Dear Sweetboy,
Do you vow to never marry me and to be my sexy, poly queer boytoy, whom I cherish and respect? Do you promise to help me show the world that queer marriage isn’t what everyone aspires to, and yet, they can be surprisingly fulfilled and committed and loving? Will you be my “whole person,” who enriches, supports and affirms my “whole person,” while continuing to appreciate and love others who bring joy to our lives?
Love and spankings,
Your femme daddy

Jamie,
To the one I love and always will. You are my sweetheart.
Michelle

GEO,
You have been there from the beginning, providing love, support and passion to me in body, spirit and mind. I pray we will be together always sharing the love that God has blessed us with. You are my friend, partner, lover and soul mate. Thank you for blessing me with your being!

Thank you for the last 13 years of love, joy, happiness and laughter. I love you even more today -(plus one). You are the best part of my life. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day Love! I am grateful every day that you are in my life. You are one of the most wonderful people I have ever met.
Love Always,
Slick

My Dearest Emily,
Two years ago on Valentine’s Day I asked you to marry me. Even though we cannot legally marry in this state yet, I still look forward to the day you and I will be wife and wife legally instead of in our hearts.
Lots of Love,
Peaches

DAS – From the moment you entered my life, I knew that it was possible to have sunshine on even the cloudiest days. I am truly and deeply honored, heart and soul, to be a part of your world. I love you, baby. Happy Valentine’s Day – MAT

Tyra,
The only ladybird I will ever love, please fly with me!
Happy St. Valentine’s Day!

This Valentine’s Day, I want to let you know how much you mean to me publicly. Getting to know you, learning how you think, what you value, your dreams and desires, finding out exactly how wonderful you are has been the best. It’s been almost four years and together we have formed a household and family. With your gift of parenthood we have both helped raise your child to be the exciting intelligent beautiful passionate young woman she is today. You are my confidante and friend, my teacher and student, my lover and wife. The one thing I thought I would never do, I have done – thank you for that beautiful service in the church with our families and friends. The flowers, candles, music, our daughter playing guitar, the friends and family, the beautiful rings, and the tears of joy will live in my heart forever. We have been through some rough times, scary moments, and real challenges, but whenever those moments appear, we stand closer together – our love makes our family stronger. You have made the responsibilities of life worthwhile, and the joys and the newness of our experiences together outweigh any passing fears. Please know that I am so blessed and so thankful for YOU. I hope I can help make your dreams come true, and I hope I bring you the joys, the strength, and passion that you bring to my life. I know our valentine wishes have come true and will keep coming true over and over again, and we will grow closer and more in love as we travel this journey of life together. Thank you for being my valentine!

To Jon,
Without you, I would have no idea who has a chance for the Oscars.
Love,
Peter

Cathy Schneider, we’ve shared our vows in front of thousands of people at Pride in Lansing on 6/22/96. We’ve repeated our vows at every opportunity. We’ve been to the Oakland County Court house every year. We’ve gone to Canada to make our vows legal. I’ll repeat my vows to you every day until the end of time. I love you.
Your loving Wife,
Linda

Aaron,
It has been a rocky and turbulent year but as you say, “we’re still together.” I love you and want to celebrate all that life has in store for us! Be my Boo Boo forever and I will be your big Yogi bear.
Love,
Jamie

Oliver,
Thank you for being exactly who you are everyday! I love you very much.
Martone

To my loved one:
Together for 6 1/2 years our love is strong. Me so tall and you only 5’3. When we slow dance your head is low on my chest. O my, I love you so. With all my doubts an fears for the future. And you with no doubt at all. This Valentine’s Day I want to tell you, Blue eyes I love you!

Bob and Dann, sitting in a tree… that’s all, they’re just sitting in a tree… TOGETHER! Because They Love Each Other.

Even still,
D’Anne

Bobby,
I can’t possibly express how fortunate and happy I am that you came into my life. I am continuously amazed at how well our two totally zany and chaotic lives mesh together so perfectly, and even more amazed that you put up with me in the first place. I can’t wait to spend many more Valentine’s Days with you and I know that we’ll continue to cherish the days between them.
Love always,
Greg

BMH, you are truly one in a million. Words do no justice for the love I have for you. You are the reason I smile every day; you bring more joy to my life than you will ever know. YAMGFAYAB, always and forever. I love you.

Ricky,
Words alone can the love, passion, respect, honor, carnal magnetism, and pride I hold for and of you. Mi corazone te adora chulo.
Tim
