    I met the love of my life in High School. We started dating and became each other’s best friends for seven years before our marriage of thirty-three years—and I think we have a love story that is very, very rare. Last year, I got in a horrific accident. I was on my bike, which is how I exercised every morning, and a drunk driver hit me at 4:30 am before I went to work where I was a second grade school teacher. The accident left me in a coma for 6 weeks until I awoke with a brain injury and virtually l had to relearn absolutely everything again. All my safety equipment was on. And now at my school, Kitty Ward Elementary, everyone will always wear their helmets. Mine was smashed into seven pieces. But if I did not have that on I would have died. My husband is still with me even after the accident. AMAZING!,, which is what HE is! Most people would have called it quits by now but we still love each other and always will. We enjoy our three beautiful sons and we are expecting our first grand baby girl in November. Though the accident was a challenge, we are so glad to have each other and look toward a great future. Please consider us for the contest. For “You are still the one”, part with Shania Twain, one of our favorite singers. Oh, today is our anniversary, too! He left Flowers and my favorite sweet treat, and a darling card! 7-26-79-Scott and Ilene Sorenson-Phone:702-682-4242. Address:3641 White Plains Drive, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89129.This is a surprise for my husband—so don’t tell him! K?

    I met my husdand Jeff at a restaraunt 21 years ago. We have been married 19 years. (our only marriages which we are both extremely proud of) He was wearing a baseball hat eating dinner, but he did use his knapkin which impresssed me. I was 30 & he was 26 years old. He lived with his parents & I lived on my own for 9 years. Tree days later he showed up at my apartment doorstep with a long stemmed rose on my 30 birthday. We came from 2 totally different families. Mine with alot of etiquite & his not at all. Jeff moved in with me 3months later due to a surgery I had to have so he could take care of me post-op. He is not “still the one” but he “IS THE ONE.” I am blessed everyday that I have chosen him to be my soulmate. We are both Catholic and we follow our marriage vows till death us do part. I have had 7 surgeries in our marriage & 6 years ago diagnosed with multiple-sclerosis(M.S.)it’s quite expensive for my weekly shots & other medicines and yet he doesn’t say a word. Our son is 17 yr’s old and is caring & loving like his father. Jeff is a wonderful human being & a husband that any woman would be proud to have. I am beyond proud of him and tell him everyday that I am blessed to have him. I could write all day but I have to give someone else a chance. (if I spelled any words wrong I am sorry for I do struggle with the MS.) Thank you. (married 6/26/1993) :)

    I couldn’t get a email to Sharon Osbourne when she was so upset about her son Jack being diagnosed with multiple-sclerosis. I will take this moment to please let her know that life does go on. Stress, heat & high humidity is not good for Multiple-Sclerosis. He will do just fine. I’ve been doing it for 6 years and so can he. Sharon and Ozzie are tough cookies, so I’m sure Jack is too. Thank you

    I have been married to my wonderful husband for 34 years this coming Sept. we have 3 children &3 grandchildren, who lives close to us and we are so lucky to see them all everyday, we are so close to them. We had the opportunity to go to Vegas for our 25th Anniv. to renew our vows in a cute little Chapel with two of our closest friends. We had the greatest time in Vegas then. Since then we have not had the finances to go anywhere together my husband is a very hard working contractor out of work, and I had to get a job to help pay the bills. Even though we have no money we are so fortunate to have Love and family that helps us when we get down. If work doesn’t pick up for us then we will probably lose our home that we worked so hard to keep all these years. however we still have each other. He is my knight & shining Armor who I love dearly and I know he feels the same. I would love to go back to Vegas with him and pretend we have no money problems and go back to our little chapel and remember the good time we had there. Thank you for reading our story and I hope we win. We have a WINNING MARRIAGE that will never end.
    Betty & Mario maietta

    My husband is still the one because we met in highschool in 1974,dated ,married had our child in 1979. Kevin has been steady in support always loving and careing. If I need help he helps, if I just need quiet he makes it happen, he waits til I ask before he gives oppinions. He allows me to lean heavily on him, he is my rock. Kevin is a good father my best friend an awesome grandad (Baba). My life has been just great because he has smoothed out every bump I have ever experianced since 1974, and I hope I have done the same for him. God has truly blessed me with the man he placed in my life. We have grown up together, when everyone else we knew grew apart.That is why he is still and always was and always will be the one.

    Wow, what a devoted spammer. To get away with it and not have everyone realize you are just one person, though, you need to use good grammar and punctuation in some of the posts instead of poor grammar and awful punctuation in all of them. Though what is the point to spamming here anyway? No one is giving away any prizes based on what is posted on this page.

    Why is this contest not open to Canada too? Seems unfair not to open it to Canadians too. Afterall, Shania is Canadian.

    Ken and I met in a restaurant in October 2004 and we have not been apart since. We were married in February, 2005 in Reno. We never had a honeymoon. In August 2011 I woke up on a Sunday morning and couldn’t walk. After two hospitals and 2 months, the dctors finally decided I had an infection in my hip bone. They cut off my femur and replaced it with what they called a spacer (a ball packed with the antibiotics). Now I had to try to walk with a ball in my hip that moved with each step. Six weeks of intervenous antibiotics then 4 weeks of waiting to ensure the infection didn’t return. I was allergic to the antibiotics and itched constantly. Finally they operated and did a full left hip replacement on January 23, 2012. All this time I was in a nursing home for rehab. Finally I was released and allowed to go home with a walker. I was not allowed to do almost anything by myself. Ken was with me constantly. Then on April 20,2012, just 3 months later, I had a heart attack. Back to the hospital for a quadruple by-pass and more nursing home rehab. All together, I was in the hospital or rehab for 10 1/2 months, Ken NEVER waivered. He sat with me every day…never missing an opportunity to help me. I will love this “one of a kind” man forever. We have been married over 7 years and he still reaches for my hand, opens the car door, does the laundry and cooks. I am just now walking with a cane and able to help around the house. Oh, and by the way, I am 11 years older than he is. His love has brought me through all these adversities. He will always be “THE ONE”

    The one. I met this man several years ago prior to separating from my husband. At that time I just assumed we would fall in love and live happily ever after. After a few years of me being on my own and still spending more and more time with him, I was diagnosed with brest cancer. My world changed but he was there every minute, whatever I needed, whenever. I have always wished there was someway to repay him for all he did for me, attending all of my surguries, my chemo, picking me up every morning to take me to radiation (33 days). Not making me feel ugly when I lost my hair, as a matter of fact – he cut my hair for me to make me look “cute”. People could not believe he actually cut my hair. He is a gentleman with the most caring heart in the world. He is a very rare individual and I am so very fortunate to be the person he cares about. But it’s not only about the cancer — he is just that type of person. The number one main thing between the two of us is respect. I now know the difference between quantity and quality.

    I’m not writing for myself. I’ m writing for my mom & stepdad. They are the strongest couple I know. This November will be their 20th wedding anniversary. My mom always does things for others, but not much for herself. & my stepdad, he works a lot to take care of his family. Last year we (the adult kids) thought it was their 20th anniversary & gave them $160 & made reservations at a SUPER nice seafood restaurant. We shortly found out it was only their 19th anniversary! They’ve always done things for us kids, so we wanted to do something for them. Now that this year is their actual 20th anniversary we don’t have any ideas of how to top last year. I believe they deserve to win this contest to renew their vows in Vegas, solely because they are the strongest loving couple I’ve ever known, & because my mom would never enter herself. Also, every time they plan a trip for the two of them something always prevents them from going. My stepdad has loved my mother through every milestone us kids threw at them, surgeries, loss of her father, loss of her job of 15 years, & menopause. He’s the most patient man I know. My mom has loved my stepdad through the diagnosis of Autism in his son, family drama when they all said it would never last, & being a father figure to her kids that they felt comfortable with. Being a blended family is a lot of work & the fact that they didn’t give up is amazing! They still look at each other with stars in their eyes. It’s beautiful. The words ‘I love you’ aren’t used in vain with these two. They don’t just say it, they project it; & you can feel it when you are around them. They are eachother’s best friend first, lovers second. God is first, then us kids (still), & when there’s time they spend it together. I think all that has made them last this long. My mom sings, pretty well I might add. When I was a teen she & I kareoked Shania songs together. She sometimes chooses ‘Still The One’ to sing to my stepdad, among other songs.

    John and I met in 1959, back in the day of cotton picking. He was passing by in the truck and he waved. Back then a lady was not to wave so I raised my arm half way and thought that I would never know who that young man was. On a Sunday afternoon, while walking home from an errand with a friend, I saw this blue 1952 Ford pass us by. Every year people would travel to our hometown because Taft, TX was considered the “best cotton picking town in Texas”. So we didn’t give it much thought. A week latter, the same blue car stopped by our house and the young man asked me what my name was. Much to my surprise, his name was John and my name was Janie (nickname), his last name was Torrez, mine was Torres! Only difference was the spelling. To make a long story short, I did not know at the time that the day I was walking home from the errand, he told all his friends who were with him in his car that I was going to be his wife. They laugh at him but he told them you wait and see. It was love at first sight! We communicated through mail because back then we didn’t own a telephone. We saw each other only twice during the next two years but we knew we were deeply in love. In September, 1961, we were married and have had a good life. There have been many ups and downs but our love for each other helped us through the rough times. As like most marriages, there have been illness, poverty at the beginning, but there has also been lots of love, four children, seven grandchildren and to this day we hold hands because we are so close. We have cried tears, have known hardships, but have also lived to experiece joy, peace and most important of all, God’s love! We will celebrate fifty one years this September 20, 2012. We had dreamed of having our Golden Anniversary a special celebration with family and friends last year, but financially things didn’t work out that way. We did, however celebrated our 50th Anniversay with a Mass and what better way then to celebrate the blessing of a marriage after fifty years? God has been good to us. John and I would be honored and would love to be chosen but if we are not, we pray someone that is worthy of this blessing will be.

    My Husband is still the one and will always be the one. He is my best friend and sole mate. He knows me sometimes better than I know myself. Their could never be anyone like him. This man stuck by me when I broke his heart, I broke our engagement off with feeling of thinking he was to good to be true and thinking that I didn’t deserve this one. He was so kind and trusting,something I was not accustom to. He is my night in shining armor. We have seen 26 yrs marriage and I know we will enjoy our rocking chairs together on our front porch till death do us part. We have had our share of troubles, loosing all four of our parents within six months was horrific. That was just three yrs ago now, if my behavior or mood was off at times he just had more compassion for me,it was a very hard time. We pulled through. Everyday the bond we share grows stronger. I love him so much that words can’t describe what my heart feels. I will enjoy everyday I can with this man, he is still the one for me!!!
