TheDailyBeast: Couples We Can Still Believe In

6 of 10

Elton John and David Furnish

Five years after Elton John came out, he met then-advertising executive David Furnish on Oct. 30, 1993, at a dinner party he was hosting. The musician reportedly asked Furnish for his phone number, and the two had a private dinner the following night, on Halloween. But their relationship was no trick or treat. John and his partner have had their trials and tribulations, but eventually they made their union official at a Dec. 21, 2005, ceremony at the Guidhall, Windsor, followed by a lavish affair at their Berkshire mansion. "Meeting David has been the greatest thing to happen to me," John told The Daily Mirror of his Rocket Man. "Yes, we spend a lot of time apart and it’s hard, but we make it work. We phone each other five or six times a day and we still send each other a card from wherever we are." Correspondence certainly helps the couple of 16 years maintain their romance, but so do flowers. Says John: "David’s best advice to me all the time is: ‘Just stop and smell the roses.’ But I don’t stop. I’m not one for looking back, I’m one for looking forward."
