Ron and Bill 1965 - Pennsauken, New Jersey (after I moved into Bill's apartment)
On this summer day in 1964, at a gay bar on the corner of 15th and Spruce Streets in Philadelphia, PA I met Bill, my life partner.
Today we celebrate our 46th anniversary. Since same sex couple are not allowed to marry in this country, most of us count as our anniversary the day we met. Thus, July 3, 1964 is the date of our anniversary.

Perhaps someday in our lifetime we can officially get married. Perhaps. But for now I rejoice in the fact that I have been able to live the past forty six years of my life with this wonderful man who has always treated me like a prince.
Happy anniversary Bill. I love you!
