...well we got married. Not on V-day actually, but on Saturday.

Congratulations to you both and best wishes!

Congratulations on the wedding, and on the foresight to have your anniversary be Feb 15th.  Happy half-priced chocolate day!

 So we threw together an incredibly quick wedding. We'll still have our "real" wedding next year, but now the legal stuff is out of the way!


Congratulations! But.. what do you mean by having a real wedding again next year?

This was our legal bit we have to do. See in our state, same sex marriage isn't legal (in fact there's whole state constitutional ban on it), so while we can have a pretty ceremony, we don't get any of the federal benefits. Because the law is, the feds will recognize your gay marriage so long as you do it in a state that recognizes gay marriage. So the plan was always to do to a legal ceremony in one of the states that allows it. Our wedding date is set for next year, which is when we'll have our big ceremony with everyone.

Originally we were going to do the legal wedding closer to our "real" wedding (real isn't exactly the right word, but I can't think of a better one), either right before or right after. But with my uncle's health, and knowing how much he wants to see us married, we decided to just do it now. So he saw us get legally married, and we got to check one thing off our wedding checklist. It was supposed to be just paperwork down at the court house and some vows....someone who wasn't either bride (uncle) wouldn't hear of it.

We did something similar - got married in Massachusetts, then had a ceremony/party with friends at home. We called it a Reaffirmation.  At the legal ceremony, we used the generic "promise to love, honor, etc." vows, but at home, we wrote our own. "I reaffirm my vows and promise that..."

Congrats, Glitter and Partner!    8)  Also, I think I love your great uncle.  I bet he has some amazing stories to tell about the years he has lived; I enjoy listening to older folks reminisce about times past.  (My 17 year old son claims I'm getting there, myself.  I seem to relate a lot of things happening now to "how things were" back in "my" day.)    ;D

As for V-Day, I gave Son a pack of Skittles and a Kit Kat bar, and then we watched Walking Dead together two nights later, as per tradition.  I still have all the cute little valentine cards he made me in elementary school, and this time of year, I like to take them out and look at them.  This year was a little difficult for him, as his first big romance ended not too terribly long ago, and although he has handled it with aplomb, I know he misses her.
