"Life is really simple if you think about it. If you love something... fight for it. Sacrifice for it. Love it so much that it makes you want to love yourself in a way you never knew you were even capable of loving," Tyler wrote in the caption.

"It's been 13 years together & that's not because of luck or us not arguing or not getting upset with one another... that's because everyday, we choose to love each other unconditionally, with all the flaws & all the baggage our past lives has given us," he continued.

"We choose to listen to one another & be heard by one another. We choose to confront our issues head on & fix them together. We choose to nurture our spiritual bond together & share lives ups & downs with one another," he shared. "We are lovers in this life, so we can be soulmates in our afterlife."

"@catelynnmtv... You Are Beautiful. You Are Worthy. You Are Strong. You Are Safe... & I love you more than this realm will allow to express in all my desired ways," Tyler concluded.
