I hope that it passes… it should be the right of anyone who wants to get married, be allowed to do so.

Good for you!! Glad that you’re taking a stand!

I think the domestic partnership/civil union is only valid for same sex couples and heterosexual couples if one person is over 62.

Maybe Washington called it early so she canceled her wedding.

@the boss of you:  washington can’t call it yet, the polls haven’t closed. 

maybe she was being harrassed by anti-gay marriage people?   I hope not!  🙁

@icetea:  As a member of the LGBT community, I would like to thank you for taking action.  I am truthfully a little saddened by some of the comments here questioning HOW your decision is going to actually help the cause, because, frankly it makes a HUGE difference to those of us who are not able to get married in our home states.  While your decision may not increase the chance for marriage equality, the fact that you are making a sacrifice in this way sends a very clear message to those around you who are denied those rights that you stand beside them.  I personally, am very touched by it.

My partner and I live in California, and after Proposition 8 happened in 2008, decided to have a destination in Vermont where we could legally get married.  The wedding was stunning, and we had 50 close friends and family travel out for the occasion.  BUT, coming home to California, it became painfully clear that while we had a gorgeous wedding, our MARRIAGE didn’t mean anything in our home state.  It is still a very painful realization.  We don’t want to file for domestic partnership because we want to be legally married, just like everyone else we know. 

So thank you!  And I hope Washington allows for SS marriage so that you and your fiance can have a lovely wedding!

@janie-janie:  I know what time it is in WA but they don’t have polls. It is mail-in state.

I’m from Canada.   I just wanted to say that having marriage equality country wide is really awesome.  And I really hope that becomes a reality in more and more countries.  (FWIW, I am a woman engaged to a man)

@the boss of you:  It’s a mail-in state, but you can vote by ballot drop-box until 8pm. They don’t announce anything until the after the polls close.

I think this is a really interesting way to take a stand.  I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it, but I think it’s very cool.  Dax Shepard (the actor from Parenthood) is doing the same thing with his fiance, only with California.
