Deep in slumber, I dreamed about a boring conference I was attending. Trapped in the middle of the 2nd row of black chairs, the person next to me was spilling his papers all over the place. I impatiently reached for my cell phone for the millionth time, anxiously awaiting the SCOTUS ruling on legalizing same-sex marriage. Then my partner AJ gently woke me up.
The crack in his voice was all I needed to know how the verdict came down. He said to me “They…”
And I started to cry.
“…ruled in our favor. Gay Marriage is legal.”
I held him and couldn’t stop crying. We laid in bed for an hour, just holding each other.
I’ll be back on Monday with a recipe. For now I’m going to celebrate.

We shall all be celebrating for and with you – from now on, it’s “marriage” not “gay marriage”. xoxo

I can’t imagine how awesome this must be for you guys!! For the whole community, too! It’s just such a wonderful, historic day :))))
This made me cry. I’m so happy for you all and I look forward to my darling grandson’s wedding in Atlanta one day soon. I’m over the moon.
Never thought I would see this in my lifetime!! So joyful for you all!!

This made me cry. Finally, finally. So very happy for you. I won’t ask (because I know it’s obnoxious), but be prepared now for everyone under the sun to start asking when you guys are getting married. 😀 Oh, my goodness, and if you do then AJ will be your HUSBAND. I loved saying that after I got married. My husband.
Happy for you guys, hope its an awesome wedding.
I never thought I’d see this in my lifetime! Isn’t it grand???????????
All over the world people went rainbow-colored. Even here (Germany) a lot of gay friends were celebrating the day. From a European view the biggest surprise was to see America set an example on same sex marriage (as we consider Murrica to be rather conservative in many respects, hmh). Wether you guys decide to act on it or not, I really believe that equality (of race, color, sex, or spiritual beliefs) in face of the government and the law should be the basis of any state claiming to be a democracy in the year 2015.
