And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Loving One Another - Issue No. 027 - Ryan Joseph Lopez

And this is what Loving One Another is all about...  My beautiful, handsome husband, Ryan knows how to really make my day.

You Are My Brick
We may fight, argue, disagree or discuss a subject kinda loudly; whatever you may call it, it doesn't make our love any less stronger than the moment before. More than likely the conversation probably helped solve a problem to make our bond even more powerful.

After nearly 8 years, no matter how much you may frustrate me at times, even though the instances are few, in the end I cannot hide the love I have for you.

I look into your eyes as you go to bed at night, and see them first thing in the morning as you kiss me goodbye. And I can never get enough of that.

Nothing could ever replace that feeling of compassion.

No one could ever make me feel that same way.

It's a constant reminder that after nearly 8 years together, there can always be too much of a good thing, except when it comes to you.

You are my better half that I do not wish to survive without. You are the brick which holds us together, the foundation that keeps us from sinking and the roof that always protects us from whatever comes our way. I'll be the tiny nails and screws in the wooden beams - though they may be small, they are mighty.

Together our loving relationship not only survives, it thrives and will continue to venture on for many more years to come.

I couldn't be prouder of the house we built together, and I couldn't be happier to live in it with you, my partner, husband and best friend forever.

Almost happy eight years together, my love.

We'll face all challenges together and conquer them, smiling, knowing nothing can ever stop us now.

Love you bunches, my one true love.
