Navy LT Gary Ross and Dan Swezy, the first military same sex marriage after the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” Military policy was lifted.

I get the idea here but personally I think that it should be “Post WEDDING pictures that make you happy”. Interracial, same race, hetero/homosexual, who cares? We are all trying to celebrate the same momentous occation and In My Humble Opinion until we who are celebrating the events stop drawing lines that divide us then why would anyone else? Maybe that is a bad opinon to have, but that is what I first thought of when I saw this. By The Way these all look like amazing weddings.

Seriously? Could his partner apply for spouse benefits? (if so, that’s fantastic!)

Unfortunately, no. While same sex marriage amongst members of the military is now not terms for separation, military spouses are not eligible for benefits or housing. In fact, if the member of the military is killed in action, their spouse is not considered their next of kin and can not be notified, unless they have dependents. It’s really twisted. The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network
has LOADS of information.

Straight people and people of other races still have their marriages recognized as legitimate in all 50 states. Same sex couples dont get that luxury, and on top of that, they get to put up with hateful nonsense just for ASKING that their relationships be recognized. So if they get one silly little thread on this board dedicated just to them and their unique situation, I think thats really OKAY.
– thanks for posting 🙂

what i got from the post – if you read what the OP wrote, not just the title – was that it was to celebrate the legality of same sex marriage in NYC. And honestly, if the thread was “post wedding pics”, we would likely see primarily heterosexual pics as evidenced by two threads with such titles this past week alone.

Im bumping this because of some of the negative posts on another thread.
This is what marriage equality looks like folks – its not scary, and no God I’ve ever learned about, who represents LOVE, could look down on this.
