WATCH: Meet Bill And John, A Loving Couple Together For 54 Years Who Never Got The Chance To Marry

William Campbell and John HIlton saw each other through seven decades of love, companionship and laundry. In “More Than Ever” — this short, touching video from Freedom to Marry — they reminisce about their 54 years together, most spent in the same Manhattan apartment. Sadly, Bill passed away in May 2011, seven weeks before New York legalized same-sex marriage. Named after the way Bill used to sign his letters to an enlisted John, “More Than Ever” is also a fitting way to describe the need for marriage equality now.
