Building love over time
Our “Now & Then” column often focuses on the built environment, but in anticipation of Valentine’s Day, we turn our cameras (and hearts) to the architecture of romance.
We are delighted that PacificNW magazine of The Seattle Times granted Jean and Clay the opportunity to prepare this “Now & Then Special” cover story on four longtime couples for the print edition of the magazine’s pre-Valentine’s Day edition of Feb. 13, 2022.
Below are links to:
- The personal backstory
- The stories of the four couples, with “web extras”
You also can visit the Seattle Times website for the four couples in our cover story plus the backstory. Enjoy!

Clay and Jean, I thought this Valentine “Now & Then” was splendid. Ann and I were second-time-arounders, now in our 43rd year, and can relate to the article stories. Well done! Tom Taylor
Thanks so much, Tom (and Ann)! –Clay
