Equal access to marriage became a reality in California today. A Memphis couple will be among those making history. The Associated Press reports:
Derek Norman, 23, and Robert Blaudow, 39, of Memphis, Tenn., were in the Bay Area for a conference and decided to get married at the Alameda County clerk's office.
"We might wait a long time in Tennessee, so this is our chance," Blaudow said.
Local media have already contacted the Shelby County Committee to inquire about this pioneering couple. I don't know Derek or Robert, but I wish them every happiness and many years together on this joyous day.
