Marry Me

As a gay man who has lived with my soul mate for 25 years I am stunned to hear our president endorse same-sex marriage. I am ready to ask David Blank to marry me. I hope he will accept. If not, we share a jumbo mortgage, and that's a legal bond way beyond a marriage certificate.

UPDATE: He accepted. We will make it official on September 17th, the day we met in Philadelphia for the Constitution's 200th birthday in 1987.
