My wife, Patti and I, were married on Loving Day, 1971. We did not know it as Loving Day at the time. We got married in Carson City, Nevada, with only one couple (friends of ours) present. We eloped because we were an interfaith couple whose parents did not approve of our relationship. We have been happily together for 40 years.

We met in high school when I attended as the only black female in the whole school. When we graduated, we parted ways and married other people. 25 years later we made our way back to each other and we are getting married June 11, 2011. Our symbol is the yin-yang because we are truly an interracial couple who made our way back to each other! We don't even really have the money to do so, but we are doing what we can to blend our families and celebrate the freedom to spend the rest of our lives together without prejudice!
Todd and I met in December 2008. On August 27th, we officially became engaged to be married. We have chosen June 10th, as close to Loving Day as possible for us to marry. We want to celebrate and offer thanks to those that have made this possible for us, a black man and white woman. We would love to know of how others have done the same and share ideas.
We met in 2004 and were married in 2009!
We met on the internet in 2004. We got married a year later in the county of Denton in Texas. We are originally from Costa Rica and Germany.
