1992, 27 years ago today, we set up housekeeping together, joining our lives. Four years ago, after society and the law caught up, and recognized that our committed long term relationship is valid and deserves protection, we married.
We are good for one another. We comfort one another, we make one another laugh. We respect each other, and remain faithful to one another. We balance one another, we share curiosity and intellectual capacity. We are both responsible, but not overly stingy. Our intellect and whit are good matches.
I can't say I love you, enough times a day, knowing that someday I won't have the opportunity to do that again. LOVE YOU!
Facebook reminded me that 10 years ago this past weekend, I took part in a march on Washington for marriage equality. In law school, I had had looked at the Constitutional issues and understood the line of reasoning that would win, but honestly, I didn't think society was ready. Five years ago when the cases were being litigated I feared that prejudice would win over legal reasoning. I am so glad I was wrong.
