Elton John and his husband, David Furnish, could be a portrait of the perfect relationships. Even after two decades together, they send each other romantic notes saying how much they love each other.
A breathtaking love story of Sir Elton John and David Furnish
In his interview with Parade magazine, Elton John recalled his first meeting with his partner, David Furnish. The British singer confessed he was instantly attracted to David.
In his 62, John was sick and tired of dating someone younger, who just used him for exotic trips and expensive gifts like Cartier watches and sports cars. That is why, Sir Elton felt some inexplicable attraction to David Furnish, a shy Canadian filmmaker, who was just beginning his path in showbiz.
The men met at the AIDS Foundation party in 1994. John said they talked the whole evening, and next day, they had their first real date.
The next night we had dinner. After it, we consummated our relationship. We fell in love quickly.
Since that time, the couple’s relationships developed with enormous speed. David and Elton were almost inseparable and immediately stole the spotlight with their every public appearance together. In his interview in 2001, Furnish recalled what it’s really like dating Elton John:
I am the luckiest of all men on Earth.
Successful marriage and happy family
Elton proposed to David in May 2005 at a dinner party with friends and family. Speaking about their civil partnership, the singer said:
I would like to place my life in my hands with a wedding vow. I have never been so happy.
Furnish explained he always considered them as a couple as Elton was the person that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with.
Five years later, their first son Zachary was born via surrogacy. In 2013, the happy parents welcomed their second son Elijah. After gay marriage became legal in England, John and Furnish got married in March 2014.
Talking about a secret how the couple keeps their relationship strong for so many years, Sir Elton revealed:
Every Saturday for 16 years, we’ve sent each other a card, no matter where we are in the world, to say how much we love each other.
Elton John and David Furnish are not an ordinary family couple. Their beautiful and romantic story proves that despite any social prejudice, excessive public attention, and busy working schedule, Elton and David will always love and support each other.
