    Nope I can't forgive. I've got a memory like an elephant. I'm just relishing the mounting losses at the court. Prop 8 made my life bit of a you know what at work with some of my religious co-workers. I told my GM not to pursue the matter with my co-workers. I HAD TO TAKE CARE OF IT MYSELF. So I'm very much enjoying all this bru-ha-ha.

    Someone close told me "So awful in what is happening in Utah with the chaos..." R---eee---aaa---l--y. yawn. evil laugh. Conversation went straight down the drain.

    So when is Utah county clerk going on an extended vacay?? Piute county clerk is on vacay so marriage licenses are not being issued.

    Yeah, it kinda was tough when our marriage was on verge of being voided by prop 8. I don't recommend this but I think it made us stronger. So I'm enjoying the chaos.

    We got to watch the lawyers arguing the prop 8 case in San Francisco Federal court before it went to the Supremes. They were/are brilliant, like verbal chess or tennis. If you get a chance to see "8, the play" live or watch online, do.

    I got my own miniature prop 8 trial over my unemployment bennies which was fun, if you think law is fun.

    All counties now issuing licenses! Maybe they hired temps while clerks take a vacay? Congratulations, Utah!

    Regarding Piute County, what does it mean to be out of town, when you live in a county where there really aren't any towns?

    When I saw the LDS Church succeeding in getting California's Proposition 8 on the ballot and then the way they funded getting it passed, I couldn’t think of a stronger example of the need for separation of church and state.

    Had a good conversation with some friends one night about teen homelessness and suicide in Utah and parents abandoning said teens for homophobic reason’s given to them by the LDS in their churches through anti-gay video’s, letters read from the churches leaders and strong fundraising for initiatives like Prop 8. If they could only see compassion and caring becoming real when they recognize a shared humanity instead of the condemnation that leads to their fear.
    As I already wrote a marriage license with Provo, Utah on it makes a huge smile go across my face…and prayers for the forgiveness that leads to everyone opening their hearts!…..that's a good personal practice in any case

    This thread gave me the biggest, happiest smile I've had in a long time Congrats to all who have married (and to all those who hope to, I wish you well).

    I live in the Australian Capital Territory where gay marriage was legal for about 6 days before the law was overturned by the High Court of Australia (equivalent roughly to your Supreme). It was wonderful for a few days to see the photos of the happy couples in the newspaper but very sad that their marriages now have no legal standing.

    I thought the wedding attire was pretty fun in its wild diversity. I especially liked the photo of the woman in a wedding gown embracing the woman in a black hoodie. Since it was so close to Christmas, I had a giggle about "...Don we now our gay apparel..." For the occasion, what else could anyone dream of wearing?!

    We wore t-shirts and jeans. Everyone wore jeans; minister, our witness. We'd been on the way to Lowe's to get a ladder when the minister called and said "I can fit you in between 3-5pm if you can get over here". Married in our church during the window before prop 8.

    Maybe a do over because Knott looks fantastic in a dress. In anything really

    It really is an amazing thing. I just want to keep checking the marriage certificate to see that it's real and legal.

    So the state has stopped talking about 'responsible procreation;' in fact, they aren't talking about procreation at all anymore.

    To couples married in Utah from one of the couples married in CA before prop 8; keep calm, you're still married. You get the thrill of filing taxes jointly, shopping for a tandem .... it'll all work out in the lower courts there I think.

    And to those in Utah who were planning to get married today don't worry. There's CA and WA which have great cycling and food, just sayin' and however many other states we're up to and soon Illinois I think? I've lost track. Think it's 17 and I can never remember it that's with or without DC.
