On behalf of non-religious marignalized straights who have no trouble living next to and working with gays and can't get our hyperreligous bigoted nutball cousins to shut the hell up and mind thier own buisiness, I'm sorry it took so long for you to get what you should have gotten a hell of a long time ago.

You two look very good together.

Mad props to AdRi for consenting to photo. I've often wanted to put a face to that name.

Good luck to you both.

YEP! Congrats! BUT THERE MUST be a big story here....crowds? Waiting Line? Chatting with all the other couples in line? Must be a great feeling! WE couldn't go today....and we know we better go soon....before "somebody" gets this stopped. Hah. We got married in 2004 for 4 months....so we'll see how this one goes. Congratulations, both of you! I see happy faces.

Irish Wedding Blessing


May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.
May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase.
May the saddest day of your future
Be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
May your hands be forever clasped in friendship
And your hearts joined forever in love.
Your lives are very special,
God has touched you in many ways.
May his blessings rest upon you
And fill all your coming days.

:)
