We await. We await with nervous trepidation for the United States Supreme Court ruling on same sex marriage, otherwise known as marriage equality. Will the Supreme Court do the right thing and strike down DOMA? Will the Supreme Court strike down California's Proposition 8 in which California voters decided that same sex marriages were illegal? I don't know. I know what my "gut" feeling is but I won't say because I'm superstitious. I am hoping the Supreme Court does the right thing and recognizes that same sex couples are entitled to the same rights, respect and benefits that heterosexual couples have taken for granted for hundreds of years.
I'm not big on attending weddings. The very first wedding I was invited to was my best friend Larry's wedding to his sweetheart Lois. That was to take place in September of 1962. Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the wedding because I had to attend the funeral of my much loved Uncle John Tipton, who died accidentally.
