When did Michael and Vanessa start dating?

You stayed when, oftentimes, I didn’t deserve it,” the Texas native began.
“You’ve loved me for ME from day one. Completely unselfishly. You’re undeniably the spark that reignited my fire,” Michael continued. “I’ll never have enough words to tell you how much I love you, but I promise to always show you.”
