Elton John and David Furnish have become a symbol of enduring love, having spent over 25 years together. Their story began in 1993 at a dinner party hosted by Elton John himself. Despite their differing lifestyles at the time, with David just having turned 31 and leading a vastly different life from Elton’s, the spark between them was unmistakable. They dated for 12 years before Elton popped the question, and they eagerly tied the knot as soon as same-sex marriage was legalized in the UK in 2014. The couple expanded their family by welcoming their son, Zachary, in 2010, and their second son, Elijah, in 2013, both born through surrogacy.
