Love in California

Last night, after spending half a century together, Phyllis Lyon and Del Martin were married by the mayor in a private ceremony in San Francisco's City Hall.

What could be sweeter than that?

I heard about this on the radio, then saw it in our Oregon paper.

I really love this story and think it is so wonderful.

Thank you for posting about this!

Absolutely nothing could be sweeter! I'm glad to see that California's come to their senses concerning the Gay Marriage ban :-).

At 5:01 pm yesterday, our wonderful County Clerk, paid for the license and married Shelly Bailes and Ellen Pontac (by now famous from being on the front page of every newspaper in the country) as promised, when she told them years ago she'd pay for their marriage if the state ever came to their senses. They've been together for 34 years! A Letter to the Editor from Shelly and Ellen appeared in our local (Davis) paper inviting everyone in town to their reception Saturday night at the Veterans Hall. Love is love no matter how you slice it!

I was wondering if you'd post on this topic, I think it's just wonderful! Let's hope it keeps going until gay marriage is accepted in our entire country!

What a wonderful day in California! I think Doublesaj and Ol Blue said it best: "Love is love no matter how you slice it!"

I couldn't agree more!!

I have loved seeing all the happy smiling faces all over the news today as there has been a real run on love in the Golden State.

I feel so happy for so many of my gay friends. Breeders shouldn't be the only ones allowed to marry. :)

Bravo to CA...we'll do it...one state at a time!!

Usually the news makes me rant, but this story just made me smile. I was especially touched when one of these ladies made a statement "with her hand resting on her wife's wheelchair." Yes, they waited a long time, and have definitely been together longer than more than half of "straight" marriages in our country.

I guess it's true! True Love Knows no boundries, and for that matter, time limitations too!

Bravo! Let's hope this starts a trend in the US. Who really cares about gener if the love and respect is mutually shared?
