The One: Rufus Wainwright and Jörn WeisbrodtFrom Rufus: “I knew he was the one for me when … In the first heated discussions involving my mother, Jörn and I, Jörn always took her side. That pretty much sealed the deal. Not to mention the first sight of his backside in Martin Margiela pants.” (Photo: Lucas Jackson/Reuters)

The One: Second City’s Ashley Comeau and Connor Thompson“I knew Ashley was ‘the one’ when, early in our relationship, she had the decency to take two large steps and turn away from me before unleashing the most violent, Earth-shattering fart anyone has ever issued, ever. (As I wrote that sentence she was behind me, farting. Some things never change.)”

The One: Cartoonist Seth and Tania van Spyk“I’m not sure if I should call it love-at -first-sight, as that might sound kind of creepy considering that the first time I saw my lovely wife Tania, she was completely naked. We met at a life drawing class and she was the nude model. And let me just say right up front that I would never have even spoken to her if she hadn’t talked to me first. It is utterly unacceptable and crass to chat up the nude model. I am a gentlemen if nothing else.“Whatever we label it — we were married within a few months time. That was exactly 10 years ago. Honestly, I’m not sure I could narrow it down to any specific moment when I first knew — but I can say that every single day is a day where I know she is ‘the one.’ A perfect friend of tireless patience and sensitivity and encouragement. A sweet refuge from the world.” — Cartoonist Seth (a.k.a. Gregory Gallant) on wife Tania van Spyk (Photo: Darren Calabrese/National Post)
