After witnessing several same sex weddings I believe it is a violation of civil rights if people are discriminated against if not allowed to marry a person of legal age regardless of what gender they were born to.
Cynthia, an American citizen, and Marina, an Irish citizen are both living in Ireland. They had to leave their home and come to Connecticut to be married in church since Ireland has approved civil unions but not marriage. Perhaps after the Supreme court rules it will impact world opinion about this basic human right.
Judge Ruth Ginsberg: “All of the incentives, all of the benefits that marriage affords would still be available…So you’re not taking away anything from heterosexual couples. They would have the very same incentive to marry, all the benefits that come with marriage that they do now.”
This is a recap of their same sex wedding from last year, in Woodstock Connecticut
Some of the must have images was proof they were married at CHURCH.
The tented back yard party hosted by the first women married in CT in 2009, Karen Ryker and Sarah Jo Burke, was festive, tearful and full of joy
Tributes of sentiment and hilarity!
The beautiful Cynthia.
I love it. Women of a ‘certain age’ acting like kids.

Thank you ladies. For showing your love, spunk and perseverance.
