Marine Sergeant Brandon Morgan tied the knot with Dalan Wells last week — a milestone they couldn’t have imagined just a few years ago.
In 2012, just four months after the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell went into effect, Morgan and Wells became a viral sensation and symbol of a new era when a photo of the two embracing made the rounds.
Sergeant Morgan had just returned from a six-month tour in Afghanistan, and did what any committed partner dreams of when they get home — he ran into the arms of his loved one.
The giant American flag just happened to be framed for optimal symbolism:
“This is a homecoming picture – gay, straight, lesbian, no matter who you are, love is love,” Morgan said of the photo at the time.
Morgan proposed to Wells one year later in 2013 — an event that was also captured:
Awww, congrats to them! I hope they have many, many years of happiness!

Semper Fi, Do or die. Gung Ho Gung Ho.
They got marred ages ago
How cool is that? With all the hate being flung at us by Republican hopefuls and supposedly “Christian” churches, it is so wonderful to see that love still exists in this country
Congrats to them both. My husband and I have been together for 15 years and married 2 years, so many, many happy year ahead of you both!
Congrats! Are we sure they are gay? The short sleeved button downs tell me otherwise.
@Billy28: It’s always possible that one or both of them are bisexual.
Congratulations, gentlemen and I wish you many, many happy years together!
Soo fabulous. I am totally in tears
@Billy28: Obviously, they’re “straight acting”. I bet they own khaki twill trousers, Bass Weejuns, and Sperry Topsiders, too. I looooove men who dress “preppy”! Best Wishes, and long life to them!!!
THE WEDDING WAS OCT 4 TWO THOUSAND THIRTEEN
— TWO YEARS AGO LAST SUNDAY
— And they are very happy — good friends of mine
The reason that str8’s hate same-sex marriage is because of how str8 marriage it is for them.
It’s a sign, not always true. It tags them as the “man & wife, 2.5 kids”. Divorce ends this little charade.
Marriage becomes a bad thing if this is what you have.
Same-sex marriage: a celebration because there’s happiness.
Hetero’s apparently dislike same-sex happiness.

Love = great!
But what happens when it’s disclosed these two guys aren’t card-carrying liberals? Do you throw them under the bus, the same way you did Ms. Jenner?
Ms Jenner is still in quite a transition- the rose-coloured-glasses type-thing. As a white male w/privilege, Ms Jenner previously enjoyed quite the perks…Men really have no idea how good they have it…
Now, as a woman– perks have been yanked. Rebugs & right-wing most assuredly have dumped Ms Jenner.
It will be interesting how things move forward for her.

Love is a wonderful thing and lucky to have found it. Best wishes.
Congrats to you both. Enjoy your life together.
My best wishes to the happy couple!
