We have been together since September 1989, and we are still very much in love. We are lucky in that our interests are quite similar, but we are different enough to still surprise each other sometimes. We have quite different personalities but our differences tend to be complementary. That we come from disparate cultural backgrounds has enriched both our lives, and has probably been an asset to our relationship rather than any kind of barrier. We are also fortunate that both our families have accepted us and our relationship well, and that we are blessed to have our own gay family unit with our godson Bank and his partner Peter.
