Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Weds Kennedy Center's Michael M. Kaiser and John Roberts
Ruth Bader Ginsburg will become the first Supreme Court justice to officiate a same-sex wedding today, August 31, when she weds Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser and economist John Roberts at the arts center in Washington, D.C.
"I think it will be one more statement that people who love each other and want to live together should be able to enjoy the blessings and the strife in the marriage relationship," Ginsburg told the Post. "It won't be long before there will be another," she added, confirming that she will be officiating another same-sex marriage in September.
Kaiser said: "I can't imagine someone I'd rather be married by."
