And that somebody’s me! If this post goes up when I scheduled it to, the ceremony will have just started.
It’s been a crazy year of planning, but everything seems ready to go as planned. Tomorrow we go on a honeymoon and I’m obliged to leave my computer behind, so no blogging until late August.
Debbie and I are both particularly grateful to Judge Vaughan Walker for the early wedding present he gave us this week. His decision striking down the hateful Proposition 8 is filled with powerful reminders of the importance of marriage in society at large, and its importance to married couples. Until marriage is accessible to every loving couple, we’ll both feel like our marriage is incomplete, and we’re grateful that Judge Walker helped move California and the nation so much closer to true equality.
On a less abstract level, I’m proud to say that my sister-in-law will be marrying the woman of her dreams next year, and we live in hope that her marriage will always and forever carry the same significance in law and custom that our marriage does today.
Truth be told, though, we’re just as happy to have you honor our wedding by giving to Equality California, which continues its work changing people’s minds about marriage equality. Help them end marriage segregation!
