On Valentines day it's important to remember that marriage is far to important to be given away to homosexuals. It is a sacred act, and must be treated with reverence. To wit:

" Dodge is helping one couple speed up the start of their "Journey" together by throwing a winter wedding at the 100th Chicago Auto Show on Valentine's Day as part of the brand's "Journey of a Lifetime" contest.
Contest winners Blake Humphrey and Jackie Rohner of Rock Island,
Ill., will be surrounded by more than 1,000 cars on display at
the largest auto show in North America when they get hitched in
front of 100 of their closest friends and family on Feb. 14. The couple will walk down the aisle to the music of a Journey cover
band, then start their journey as man and wife in their all-new
2009 Dodge Journey, a vehicle that blends the practicality of a
minivan, the capability of a sport-utility vehicle (SUV) and the
overall efficiency of a passenger car into an all-new "right-
sized" crossover, perfect for a newlywed couple."

Yes, nothing says eternal love like turning your wedding into an ad for an SUV. The bride walked down an aisle that looked like a highway and the vows were written by Dodge with plugs for Dodge products and plenty of bad jokes: "I promise to keep the tank full and stop for directions when necessary."

It made me want to puke.

I spent Saturday with a married couple--two absolutely lovely men--who have been together as long as my husband and I have.

I look forward to the day when the US recognizes that marriage should be available to ANYONE who cares to make the commitment. And I will do whatever I can to see that it happens in my lifetime.

PalJoey'sPal and I have been together 13 years, 14 in April.

We're not getting married until we can have...

A wedding in a BIG church, with bridesmaids and flower girls, a lot of ushers in tailcoats, reporters and photographers.

We want a wedding like the Vanderbiltís had, everything big not small, and if we canít have that kind of a wedding, we donít want to be married at all.

If we canít have that kind of a wedding, we donít want to be married at all!

PJ, that sounds nice but weíll have an old fashioned wedding
Blessed in the good old fashioned way
Iíll vow to love him forever
Heíll vow to love and honor and obey
Somewhere in some little chapel
Someday when orange blossoms bloom
Weíll have an old fashioned wedding
An simple wedding for an
Old-fashioned groom and groom

34 years for my partner and me. 35 in October. No one I know that's the same age as I am, has had a "marriage" last longer, gay or straight. And believe me there were plenty of people around who said we'd never last, when we first got together. To them I say...well..never mind, I'd just be banned if I said it.

Chances are we'll probably never really get married...and you know what? I don't really care, because in my heart we always have been.

Next month will be 6 years for me and my partner. Living in separate countries. I know straight couples who considered living 60 miles from each other a "long-distance relationship" and still couldn't hold it together. Pfft!

This September will be 10 years for me and mine, and if any one says that what we have isn't sacred, well, they can just blow it out their backside.

I've been with my guy 7 months.

That's not a long time, but it sure is longer than many sacred Hollywood marriages.

Mister Matt, my partner and I are at a little over 3 years, living in seperate countries (me in the U.S. and him in Germany). I had to laugh at what you said about "long-distance" relationships! I work with people who are squeemish about dating something who lives an hour away. My eyes roll so hard sometimes I'm afraid they'll never come back around.

My wife and I have been married for over 22 years. I hope that very soon everyone has the same rights with respect to marriage.

April 28th will be 8 years for me and my man! I would love to have a ceremony one day to celebrate our relationship but as far as actually getting legally married, it's really not that important to me.

My partner and I just passed our 15 year mark. Although we had a commitment ceremony in Hawaii about 7 years ago, I doubt whether the US will ever allow us to marry.

Maybe if we retire to Canada....

JoeKv99, nothing is ever truly free. I'm sure the couple were feeling pangs of regret about 20% into the whole process. But they wanted the free stuff.

And hello? "Man" and wife? It's husband and wife, stupid Dodge morons!

Joe--I was going to say "Love and honor, yes! But NOT obey..."

But then I read the subsequent posts in this thread, and I am awestruck. Congratulations everybody, from 7 months to 35 years--wow!

JustaGuy--we've had threads before about the importance of wills and powers-of-attorney and advanced medical directives for gay and lesbian couples. Can you tell us at what point during these past 35 years, you and your partner decided to do that? Things were very different in 1973, weren't they?

I just want to offer my support. I do NOT understand why we can't all be seen as equal, since we so obviously are.


Congrats to all of you who are celebrating anniversaries and such!

Marriage is "a sacred sacrament between a man & a woman". However, secular unions (whatever they want to call them) aren't, and the idea that anyone thinks they are is preposterous.

"Marriage is "a sacred sacrament between a man & a woman".

NOPE. Marriage is only a sacrament in the Catholic and Orthodox Church. And it wasn't a sacrament until the 12th Century.

Most protestant churches only consider Baptism and Communion as sacraments.
