happy marriage equality day, DC!!!


 Today, the city of DC will begin to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.  One of my old bosses is going to apply for one today after having been with his partner for over 25 years.  I couldn't be happier for them. 

I don't think I truly grasped the magnitude of this law until yesterday.  I was chatting with a very politically involved co-worker when I suddenly remembered March 3rd and it's significance.  "Tomorrow is the big day!" I said.  He replied, "I know!  It's so exciting.  I've been with my partner forever and we can finally start talking about marriage and having a family and...I've been so afraid that this wasn't going to happen that we didn't really talk about that stuff before.  This changes everything"

A life-changing law?  It truly is.

Congrats to all the gays applying for marriage licenses today and beyond!
