And in the place and on the day where the personal becomes public and maybe even political, I'll share with everyone that the song my love and I started off our wedding ceremony with more than six years ago now was this one. In a ceremony that was family and friends and religion and truly of our hearts, we gave out lyric sheets and had everyone sing along:
And the message of that song, and of our wedding, is still true today, the day when our being a family together was finally able to be acknowledged with our applying for and receiving a legal marriage license in our home state (though not yet our home country...)
What the world needs now is love, sweet love.
Like the sweet love I have with
My best friend,
My legal betrothed and oh-so-soon to be legal husband!
I love you, Mark.
