Brief hiatus for wedding stuff.

I'll be taking the next few days off from blogging and agenting as I'm flying out to San Francisco to attend my brother Craig's wedding to Jack, his partner of more than fifteen years. (Wheeeeeee! Here's hoping that the good people of California have some sense and vote down Proposition 8 so that their marriage will remain legal after November 4th.)

I'm thrilled about seeing them both after so long without a trip back the West Coast. I'm equally thrilled that this is an informal wedding, because I do so hate dressing up and my sense of sartorial splendor is sorely lacking.

In any case, I'll be back online sometime on Monday or Tuesday. See ya!

Have fun, and congrats to Craig and Jack!

I'm in California, and we're doing what we can to defeat Prop 8!

I've never been able to figure out how something like your brother's marriage could possibly affect my own. Consenting adults- what's wrong with that? Wish I lived in CA so I could vote NO on prop 8. Best wishes to Craig and Jack in any case. Would LOVE to see their photo in the paper for their silver anniversary.

Congrats to them! But, I'm figuring Prop 8 will pass. California runs closer to the middle than presidential elections might make one think, and there are a fair number of people in the middle (i.e., my parents) who'd rather homosexuals refrained from anything remotely sexual, let alone marriage.

My solution? Abolish gay marriage. Then abolish marriage. Update Civil Union laws, and cut gender terminology. Bam, done. Let churches marry whom they will, and whoever wants to live together forever will live together forever.

Best wishes to you and the happy couple!

~ A marriage...makes of two fractional lives a whole; it gives to two purposeless lives a work, and doubles the strength of each to perform it; it gives to two questioning natures a reason for living, and something to live for; it will give a new gladness to the sunshine, a new fragrance to the flowers, a new beauty to the earth, and a new mystery to life. ~ M. Twain

Whatever we wind up calling it, a seriously committed relationship fundamentally changes the lens you see every decision and conflict through from there on out. Problems become something you must resolve, because bailing is no longer an option if you've taken the commitment part for realsies.

It's a good thing for we humans, and everybody should be on equal footing-- period.

It is good to hear some happy happy news these days. Heartfelt congratulations to the couple and the witnesses, too!

Congratulations and best wishes for the happy couple's future together!

I remember when my mom first visited me in the States and met my gay friend Adam, it was the first time she'd met an openly gay person. But he was so generous and friendly that she told me, "It's such a pity he's gay. Otherwise you could have married him."

(Marriage to her daughter is a Great Honor, you see)

At the end of her stay, I took her to the airport and while we were talking, I mentioned Adam. She said she had changed her mind about my marrying him.

"You have?" I said.

"Yes. He's too good for you."

Gee thanks, mom!
