Last year we featured a great love story about Steve and Beth Rothstein.

When Steve Rothstein decided to ask his girlfriend Beth Pepper to marry him back in 1984 he wanted to do something a little different, which is why his brother arranged to have the words "Beth Will You Marry Me Steve" put up on the marquee sign of Theatre Three.

When they were dating, the couple always went to dinner in the village. With the help of his brother, Rothstein came up with the idea of putting his proposal in big letters outside of Theatre Three.

"I thought it would be really cool to come down the hill and see the sign," he said.

We are hoping to fill this photo gallery with photos of local couples and words of advice from area readers. Can you help us out?

All you have to do is post a wedding, engagement, anniversary or couples photo here and include in the caption of that photo your advice on what keeps your relationship strong. 

Posting a photo simple! Here is what you will need to do: 

  • Click on the giant "Upload Photos and Videos" button right above the photo gallery
  • Select a photo of yourself and your significant other
  • Add a caption with your names, duration of marriage, and piece of advice
