How It All Began (The Lighting of Their Eternal…
20 years ago today: Michael and Lisa Marie were married in the Dominican Republic.
Today would of been Michael and Lisa’s 20th anniversary.
"Had it been just he and I, towards the end, I don’t think we would have divorced."
‘How’s it going with Debbie?’ Lisa wanted to know, according to what she later recalled to a friend.
Half-heartedly, Michael said it was ‘okay’ with his wife. He had another glass of red wine, his fourth. He told her that as much as he cared for Debbie, when he was with her, ‘I focus on what I don’t have, instead of what I do have. I just want to be in love. Like what you and I had. I was so afraid,’ he told her, according to her memory. ‘I know now that I closed you out. What can I do now?’
Lisa says that she didn’t respond. She no longer had the answers to his problems – not that she ever did – or the solution to his life. There wasn’t much she could propose, except perhaps the most basic of offerings between two people with a history who still care about each other. ‘I want you to know,’ she told him, ‘that if you ever need a friend, I’m here for you. You have such a good heart, Michael,’ she added.
‘I love her,’ Michael told one of his associates the next day, ‘more than anything, more than anyone, I still love Lisa. We have such a strong connection.’ His eyes filled with tears. ‘That was my one shot, man,’ he said. ‘I did a lot of foolish things. I may never get another shot, you know?’ ‘In another world, we would be together,’ Lisa would say, ‘just not in his world, I’m afraid.’

"The brilliant thing about us is that we were often together but did not let anybody know about it. We got to see each other that way over the years. We were really quiet and comfortable with each other. That’s pretty much how the dating started happening."
“I was really in this lioness thing with him - I wanted to protect him. Naive as hell. I never thought for a moment someone like him could actually use me.” - Lisa Marie
“Why should I have to explain how I feel about my wife in a press release… Let people think to what they want.” - Michael Jackson
Not a huge fan of this couple but the way they acted around each other was so sweet! :)
