My friends James and Anthony just got married. My breeder friends make a big deal any time any one does that. Even though these days most of them have done some exploratory poking around or are into serial monogamy.
It’s an even bigger deal when it just became legal for you and your mate.
They have been together for 33 years. They own a house and a business together.
I explained to an unsympathetic redneck neighbor that marriage is a LEGALITY that declares two people related IN THE EYES OF THE LAW. That makes it hard for hostile relatives to swoop in and steal assets they didn’t earn (in the event of a partners death) and simplifies tax issues…
And so much more.
I could tell by the look in her capitalist libertarian eyes that it was the one thing she had never considered. To hell with the “not Adam and Steve” crowd.
In the eyes of the state, marriage has nothing to do with religion.
I never dreamed I would live to see Gay Marriage legal where I live but it recently became legal in Santa Fe County. There was a long line…
After 33 years they already had a toaster. So I took a can of linseed oil and greased their porch rocking chairs. Paste waxed them too. 😉 Left a cheap bouquet on the kitchen island….
