Though a date is not officially set, we're hoping for our kind of marriage to be legal, and in between my election cycles, when we do tie the knot. Among questions we are commonly asked is who will propose? Answer: Diane. Though we'll exchange rings, mine will be shinier, and call me traditional, but I've always dreamt of a Prince(ss) Charming, down on one knee. Other answers we often recite are that I'll wear a dress and she won't, we'll both get walked down the aisle, and no, we won't be using a religious institution as a location for the ceremony. However, I'm happy to report that many churches, including the American Baptist one I attend, welcome all couples to their altars.
We'd love to take in some of the scenery of our beautiful coast for the ceremony, as we imagine couples from states where same-sex marriage is not a reality will travel to do someday in the not-so-distant future. Most likely, we'll write our own vows, invite family and friends to participate, and incorporate some female artist folk music, like any good Lesbian couple would do. But those are the details we'll have to sort out as we get through discussions about air guitars and wait for the results of the people's veto on November 3.
