Iowa Guy 2.0: This time there is no doubt
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Guy 2.0
This morning, shortly after 11:00 a.m., my partner and I were married
in a civil ceremony at the Pottawattamie County Courthouse. It was
just us, two dear friends as witnesses and the judge who performed the
ceremony. It was over in five minutes and we all went to one of the
casinos for lunch to celebrate. It was so low-key compared to the
first wedding in San Francisco five years ago. In San Francisco, there
were literally hundreds of couples, along with various family, friends
and others. ... Today was completely different. There were no cheering
crowds in front of the courthouse, nor were there any protesters.
There was only one other couple being married this morning, and they
were a "traditional" couple. It was just another normal business day
at the courthouse. Exactly the way it should be.
