Statement.

“Scot Hammond and Seth Lawrence have already had five commitment ceremonies or weddings during their 14 years together. The last thing they need is another blender. So instead of registering their July 6 wedding at a department store, the San Francisco couple entered their names in the wedding registry on the Equality California Web site, asking wedding guests and friends to make a political donation to support gay marriage instead of buying them a wedding gift.” [The Mercury News]
