Cyndi and Ian, St. Petersburg
It is very exciting that everyone is on the brink of receiving the “privilege” of getting married. We do not understand why it was ever any different. We have been together since 1996 and married since 2002. Marriage is a serious commitment and work. It should require more signatures than buying a car or a house…for sure!
Please do not allow the excitement of a new right granted to cloud your judgement! Pick a wife or husband carefully! Make sure that you both agree on your life philosophies. Please have the difficult discussions (about money, intimacy, religion, death/dying, etc) now before they could cause problems in the future. As things become equal (as they should have been all along) do not get swept up in the emotions, but make decisions that are the best for you and the one you love!
We wish everyone peace and happiness!
