Annise Mabry and Benae Ingram met online in 2013. Shortly afterwards, they began dating long-distance and married one year later in December of 2014.

In that time, however, Benae’s multiple sclerosis took a turn for the worst. In the StoryCorps Atlanta booth, they talk about navigating uncharted territory together.   

This story was recorded in partnership with the Family Equality Center Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps Booth.
