The most love-winningly, heart-warmingly, and equality-affirmingly normal thing happened at John and Michael’s wedding on Sunday. Friends of both of theirs told Lucia and I stories of how they had hoped that each of them would find someone perfect for them, and what an incredible blessing it was that they had found each other.
If there’s nothing unusual about that, you’re probably from New England, where New Hampshire legalized same-sex weddings six years ago. But as marriage equality has been the law of the country for only just a year, I think it’s worth celebrating that none of the conversations were about John and Michael’s legal rights. That conversation is over – love won. None of the staff at the Wentworth by the Sea snickered about having two grooms; none of the guests at the hotel worried that their kids would see a gay ceremony; and the only thing anyone wanted to protest was the heat. Love won.
And for John and Michael, two men who found each other after years of each of them not having a soulmate, their love triumphed.
