      Now, this is a picture that warms my heart. Knowing that they have had to put up with rumor, hate and unacceptance for so long… and now they’re hitched.
      I am very very happy for both of you.

      Just beautiful.
      Nothing says love and commitment like two people who have stood by each other for so long.
      They are truly an inspiration.

      Maybe the phrase “confirmed bachelor” should also hit the slag heap.

      This is the threat to the sanctity of marriage?

      Congrats to Phyllis and Connie as well as the other couples in NY. It is definitely a proud moment to see that their love is being recognized, as it should have been all along. :)
