We first met in person during June of 1982 and have been together ever since then.

Today we went to Unity Spiritual Center in Woodstock with our papers and Rev. Tom Wendt (Rev Tom to his friends and congregation) helped us formalize and legalize our relationship with a brief reading of I Corinthians 13:4-13 and this promise as we exchanged rings:

"I promise to continue to love and cherish you in sickness and in health, and in joy and in challenge. I promise to continue to share gardening and music, and cooking and friends, and our dogs and horses in joy and in love."

Rev Tom then pronounced us "husbands for life."

“Congratulations” seems such a small word when guys have been in love & working a farm together 32 years but only just got the right to marry.

I'm so happy for you both! Congratulations!

It's perhaps a little more poignant for me. I hope for something like this for me (and/or my guys) in the future. It's all the more meaningful to me, truth be told, because I was a participant in my sister's wedding, and I know very well none of our families will approve of, condone, or likely even attend any sort of ceremony for us. As much as I try not to let it bother me, it does.

So I'm overjoyed from the bottom of my heart for the two of you. May your years be long, your days bright, and your lives filled with everything that makes life worthwhile.

Heeeh! *hugs back warmly* You're very welcome. Here's to another 32 years, every bit as wonderful as the first 32, with your love for each other only growing more each day.

I fail as all the previous posters have failed at repeating the obligatory word 'congratulations' which does not begin to describe the admiration, respect, joy and happiness all of us friends of yours feel in quantities we are unable to fathom adequate descriptions of.

I still hope someday I can come for a visit. I came close early last year, I actually drove through northern Illinois, but I was in a desperate rush on a long drive through snow and ice from Columbus, Ohio to my parents' home in the greater Seattle, Washington area and emotionally upset after a falling out with a good friend's significant other.

About time. :-)

I'm gonna skip all the expected congratulations and well wishes. The two of you have stuck it out for a few days longer than I've been ALIVE, this is a formality - if a very important and positive one.

I'm sorry we haven't talked in a long while, but I am very happy on your behalf to see this has finally happened.

Well, as annoying consequences go related to Illinois getting over itself at last, it most certainly could be much worse. Aren't the practicalities around the institution just grand?

All that aside, I really am happy to hear you two are so happy. We may not chat as much as we once did, but I still have a spot in my heart for you that's warm and comfy and always open <3

Light and laughter,
SongCoyote
