Love and Marriage Go Together

Those who have been reading my blogs may already have figured out that I love my partner, Dimitris, very much. Since January, when marriage equality arrived in Florida, we have been talking about making our relationship legal and permanent. When we were in Dubai in March, we bought wedding rings. They have so far only been worn once: we both wore our rings on our way home from Greece. On July 1st, I notified my family of our intent to get married on August 8th. We had already contacted an immigration attorney and the pastor of our church who agreed to marry us. We have already collected a number of items for the attorney and this week applied for our marriage license. We were told by the county clerk that the office has not caught up with the changes so one of us had to sign in as Groom #1, Thom; and Groom #2, Dimitris. We would love to have the blessing of our families, but we are content in ourselves and happy to begin life together as a married couple. Please put some gray hair in the groom on the left (smile).1212447-Cartoon-Of-A-Male-Same-Sex-Couple-Embracing-At-Their-Wedding-Royalty-Free-Vector-Clipart
