We just got back a few days ago. Our oldest son married his long-time girlfriend. The wedding was in Virginia on a goat farm. And it was truly beautiful.
They met back in 2007 in the Peace Corps. They did their service in Ukraine, but their assigned villages/cities were on opposite sides of the country making the simple act of seeing each extremely challenging and time consuming. Thankfully the challenges and distance only served to make the relationship stronger.
My husband and I are ecstatic. We could not have asked for a more beautiful and loving daughter-in-law. The only thing that could make us happier now would be for our gay son to have the same choice to marry the person he loves that his older brother had. And that just might happen soon with a Supreme Court ruling on Prop 8 coming any day now.
We shall see ...
