It's Official!

I just thought I would share some good news with you guys. After 7+ years together my partner and I are officially engaged. I couldn't be happier. I thank DC for legalizing gay marriage for making it possible for us to eventually be legally married.

Nothing official planned yet. It will be 2 separate things tho. First the legal marriage in DC. Then down the road when we are able to, we will have the church wedding and reception with friends and family.

I'm so excited for you! 7 years shows you guys are meant to be and I'm really glad you live somewhere that you can make it legal. Now if only the rest of the country would get with the program!

Definitely... It's been a long road, it wasn't always easy... probably mainly due to the fact that I was only 20 when we met, so I had a lot of growing up to do, but we've learned a lot from each other.

I hear ya on the rest of the country, but we're definitely making progress. So far it's Connecticut, Iowa (which surprises me), Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and DC. Also New York, Rhode Island, and Maryland recognize same-sex marriage but do not grant same-sex marriage licenses. So it's better than nothing!

Hey in a month or so it'll be legal here in Illinois. One thing people need to remember is how far acceptance for homosexual people has came in a really short time. For example when I was a kid back in the late 70's it was rare for anyone to be out. I remember there was a couple living in the apartment next to my Dad. To a close group of friends they were out but to most of the world they were just roommates. I think it's awesome that America can get a clue and change for the better.

Have Fun

Hey we're all family so why be closed minded. Besides when you close your mind you miss out on all the fun.

Have Fun
