About a week ago, I had the pleasure of traveling to another part of the state, where Lady Stormy and I presided over a wedding. It was outdoors, away from town; in a place that reminded me of my grandfather's summer cabin when I was a little boy. It seemed so ideal, but it was unique.
One of the first things I noticed when we arrived was that the guests had not divided into the usual "Bride's side" and "Groom's side" cliques looking at strangers. Instead, it was one group of people enjoying the occasion. Then again, there wouldn't have been a "Bride's side" because there was no bride. Two grooms were getting married in that county's first same-sex wedding.
It's one thing to sit around and discuss some subject, it's another to have your feet "on the ground" where it is happening. And I would like to offer my observations on what I found and learned. And the recent Supreme Court ruling makes it relevant to today's discussion.
