Steven Bridges and Michael Snell were the first couple to be married under Maine’s new marriage equality law this morning!
There is nothing about this that threatens anyone. I mean, really; look at how happy they are! If anything, I think that equality strengthens marriage; the more people who are taking care of each other – and the more people who are afforded dignity and respect as a matter of course – the better off we all are.
I offer my deepest and most heartfelt congratulations to all the newlyweds to the north. May your marriage be as happy, fulfilling, and sustaining as ours has been.
