So sorry you are going through this!

I live in a very small area, and see this ALL the time. While I am not gay, I have friends who are, and seeing their daily struggle breaks my heart.. struggling to be who you are should not be a thing!

I think people need to wake up! Love is love, and there are much more pressing matters to attend to.

@crookedframe:  some people are just ignorant. Try not to let it bother you. What’s important is you’re married to the love of your life now and you don’t need anyones approval (:

How disgusting of that person! If I were you I’d report her to Facebook as well, for posting hate-filled messages on a public album. I’d also ask the administrator of that almbum (your venue, I think?) to delete her comments as they don’t deserve to be noticed. 

Your wedding day sounds wonderful and I’m so glad you were able to have the wedding you wanted even though your state (stupidly) hasn’t made it legal yet. You and your wife clearly know a lot more about love than this hater ever will, I agree with you that it’s sad.

@crookedframe:  Ugh, people like that are so annoying. Why couldn’t she keep her ignorant mouth shut? I’m so sorry. Could you message the venue’s FB page and ask that those comments be taken down? They certainly aren’t doing the venue’s FB any favors either.

@crookedframe:  How awful.  I really don’t understand why anyone else gives a damn what other people do with their lives when it doesn’t even concern them. 

I agree about contacting the venue and having them remove the nasty comments.  I don’t see why they would have an issue with that.

Other than that, try and focus on the good stuff!  Some people are just dicks who can’t mind their own business.

Congratulations btw!

I’m really angry for you! 

Any time I find out someone is homophobic or racist, I pretty much write them off as being idiots- studies show that people who are racist or homophobic generally have lower IQs than those of us who are not homophobic/racist. I’d say it has to do with the fact that they are allowing stereotypes and prejudices to dictate how they feel rather than thinking logically about it.

I read a really interesting quote the other day that sort of fits this situation- “Homosexuality is present in over 1500 species. Homophobia is only present in one.” 

I’m sorry people are such assholes =/

Unfortunately, in this day and age, homophobics and people who generally dont believe in gay marriage will always feel they have the right to speak up and out about LGBT relationships. The only thing you can do is ingore the nasty comments and relish in the fact that you had an AMAZING day with amazing family and friends and married the woman of your dream. Screw the rest.

I’m pretty sure when my fiancee and I get married there will be negative comments which she is seriously worried about (ceremony is at a public site) but I am marrying the woman who has been the best partner I have ever had and THAT is my sole focus!

Perspective: You are in beautiful photos showing your beautiful wedding, surrounded by the love of beautiful people in your life.

she is home spewing poorly written rants on Facebook because her life sucks and she’s a waste of space. 

You win!

That really sucks 🙁 to be honest, gay, straight, or bi, some people just like being nasty. My brother runs a very popular weather website and he still gets hundreds of trolls (on something as mundane as the weather!). That said, I am really sorry you have to deal with that kind of bullying and prejudice, especially in this day and age. I thought your response was well written and to the point without being attacking, which is just perfect as it will really drive the point home! I honestly think some people just leave negative remarks like that for the attention and nothing else. Don’t let it bother you, your day was beautiful and your love with your partner is eternal, so what other people think doesn’t matter 🙂

@crookedframe:  Sorry you’re dealing with someone like that, but I’m glad to see your venue is supporting and even promoting same sex marriage.  Congrats on the beautiful day.

Good on you for calling this biggot out! That idiot is going to feel really dumb in 50 years for having been on the wrong side of history. Congrats on finding somebody who completes you, because that dumb bitch (excuse my language, people like this really russtle my jimmies) clearly hasn’t.

People are bigoted idiots, and they’re the ones who are truly disgusting.
