I’ve been thinking, and I’ve decided that “Gay marriage” is a funny term.
I’m just married. Not “gay married”.
Because we are a same-sex couple, does that make us any different than heterosexual married couples? Are they “straight married”?
What’s the difference?
Our wedding was very similar to heterosexual couples’ weddings:
We traveled to New York City and had a ceremony at the court house. We took wedding photos. We came back to our home in Oklahoma City and had a beautiful reception with 100 of our closest friends and family. We had a first dance…we tossed our bouquets… We ate cake.
We do all of the same things that other married couples do:
We go to work…we go grocery shopping…we pay bills…we have date nights…we have arguements…we hangout with our friends…we love each other.
Our love is not less than anyone else’s love.
I dream of the day when the world recognizes our marriage for what it is:
Two human beings that fell in love. Two human beings that want to have a family. Two human beings that want to grow old together. Two human beings that aren’t so different from everyone else.
