Holy Matrimony Batman

If you haven’t heard, California legalized “gay marriage.” I put “gay marriage” in quotes in honor of my friend C who HATES that phrase. She’s right though, if we just called it “equal marriage,” or just “marriage,” maybe there’d be less issue for the homophobes.

Anyway, as of 5:01pm today, we are legally allowed to marry each other. And we will be – next Tuesday. Due to the legal uncertainties of the November ballot issues, we aren’t doing a big to-do over it. But I feel like we owe it to each other and to the kids to do it.

So in 8 days, we’ll be married. At 8:40 in the morning, with our children in our arms. And by 9:30, we’ll be back at work. And while nothing will change in our hearts, we become part of a community that until now we’ve been denied membership in.

8 days. Pretty cool.
