Same-Sex Marriage Legalized In Washington, Also Weed


Washington is like so fun, it’s practically the Canada of America now with same-sex marriage legal and weed decriminalized. The best weddings are yet to come. Not that I am excited about the weed thing, mom. 100s of couples lined up to get married in Washington, including one couple who had been together for 35 years. One bride sported the whitest sweater I have ever seen. How does she get it so clean?

AP reports, ‘”We waited a long time. We’ve been together 35 years, never thinking we’d get a legal marriage. Now I feel so joyous I can’t hardly stand it,” said 85-year-old Pete-e Petersen, who with her partner, 77-year-old Jane Abbott Lighty, were the first to get a license.After meeting 35 years ago on a blind date in Sacramento, Lighty and Petersen will get married on Sunday. The couple has been out buying shoes and clothes for their wedding.”

It’s amazing how much the rest of the country or at least the Supreme Court (which has been wish-washy as to whether they’ll take on the landmark case or not) needs to catch up with the few states who have realized that the U.S. essentially denying the right to love to regular folk like this. It’s a freaking shame.
