Aminah had two miscarriages before she gave birth to a baby girl in 2012. After making a formal request to contact her sperm donor, the Australian pair started meeting monthly, then more, until they realized they were falling in love. Now they're engaged!


6. Vipurva made a video for his girlfriend, who couldn't be with him on his backpacking trip across Bhutan and Northeast India.

The photographer set the video to Ryan Adams' "Wish You Were Here" and had locals and fellow tourists help him send the message.

Dear Gail,

I look at newspaper pictures of new brides every Sunday. I'm searching. I want to see if there is now or ever will be another bride as lovely as you. Been doing that since June 27, 1953. Actually, I already know the answer. There is not - and never will be to me - your equal in loveliness. On our wedding day you were the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. The delightful truth is that you still are. Happy anniversary, sweetheart. You've made me and you keep me the happiest and most grateful husband any bride could ever know. I'd gladly welcome another 61 years of marriage with you. Beyond that I pray we will spend eternity together.

All my love,
