America’s Most Captivating Couples 2007

It was difficult to narrow down the entries, but we finally did it–and the result is the year’s most captivating couples! Ranging from a historic preservationist to a superhero to a TV talk show host (times two), it’s great to see so many proud women, not just in love, but spreading that love around and making the world a brighter place. Their stories inspired us, and we know they’ll inspire you, too. Say hello to this year’s sweethearts.


Sara Jane Stoner
27, Writer, Editor, and Writing Associate at the Cooper Union

Jenny Egan
26, Media Relations Liaison for the ACLU

Brooklyn, NY
Sara and Jenny met in 2002. Once an office assistant to Gloria Steinem, today Jenny deals with the media for the American Civil Liberties Union [ACLU], while Sara Jane is a writer and editor who helped noted author Jennifer Baumgardner with her book on bisexuality. These two have a lot of theories on what makes a good relationship: “Learn all of one another’s buttons, good and bad, and learn to push them appropriately. Compromise. Don’t compromise. Look for queerness everywhere. F— marriage because you can come up with something way better.”
