The honor of your presence is requested: Fab marriage article in 'Times' mag

by Jeremy Hooper

This weekend's edition of The NY Times Magazine has a great cover story (with adorable photos). The topic at ring-adorned hand? The young Massachusetts gay men who, despite what the far-right would have you believe, are (a) desperately, monogamously in love, (b) happily married or engaged to be, and (c) not destroying their state and society at-large via their legal unions. And unlike the topic of the article, we gays have the right to say 'I do' to the piece no matter if we're a Massachusetts resident or not.

Young Gay Rites [NY Times Magazine]

**It's come to our attention that some are upset with the photos, finding them cheesy or even offensive. This writer, however, finds them cute, stylish, and appropriate.

Different strokes for (not so) different folks.

It is so great to hear young men say that they felt ready to get married when they were still young because they had a more "normal" adolescence. My husband and I got married in MA the day it was legalized when I was 36 and he was 33. We were so, so ready at that point. Of course, it helps to find the right man.

Matt and Peter will have much to say, I am sure, unless they are busy planning their outfits for the deep, deep undercover work at this year's IML. I'll wait for you to summarize it, Jeremy; I'm busy saving the institution of marriage in my home state of New York by staying happily married!

Nicely done. Thanks for sharing. A real article about real people, really excited and confused and messing up and getting it right, just like the rest of us!
