I have no story that happened to me, I'm sorry. I just could not easily find a way to deliver my message to the world. I and my husband have been happily married since 1975 and WE see no difference between your love with your chosen mate and ours with each other! We are both thrilled with the federal government of the USA and the law that just happened. We hope and pray that all of the States of the US join in and support the Federal Government. Thank you all for hanging in there and fighting for your RIGHTS! You all deserve this new-found freedom. All US citizens, Please travel to your closest state and get MARRIED! Inundate the Governments with numbers that they can't argue with!!! You are all in our hearts and prayers. God loves each and every one of us... Christians, Jewish, Muslim and on and on and on. I used to say I was a Christian, but I can't anymore because of the other so-called "Christians".
