With only three month’s until my partner, Rusty, and I say I do, I cannot express the joy in my heart about today’s Supreme Court decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act! We will now be able to access over 1,000 federal benefits that we would have previously been denied.
Our planning process has been amazing knowing that New York State recognizes our union, but this is the cherry on top of the wedding cake-flavored sundae.
I am also excited that our friends in California may now have the chance to feel the same joy we do! Prop 8 was dismissed on procedural grounds and opens the door for same-sex marriage in California.
We've always supported love for everyone.
