Gay Maine Couple Celebrates 40 Years Together, Wants Marriage


Ron Schwizer and Doug Kimmel, a Maine couple celebrating 40 years together, are a prime example of why the marriage equality law in Maine must be defended. I posted about current efforts yesterday.

And Mark Mutty, the executive chair of Stand For Marriage Maine, is a prime example of a bigot: Congratulations to them for being together for that long and being happy. We celebrate that for them. We just don't see the correlation here. The point is two people can get along and have a relationship similar to marriage, but it lacks the basic characteristics of a true marriage."

  1. Yeah, 'cus that whole "love, honor, and cherish" part of the traditional vows isn't what marriage was about. It's ONLY about penises and vaginas.

  2. "lacks the basic characteristics of a 'true marriage' "


    I've been with my partner for 15 years. Not nearly as long as Ron and Doug, however, I can say here that in EVERY sense (save giving birth and we can do that via surrogate) it is EXACTLY IDENTICAL to marriage. Same commitment, same love, same arguments, same long talks, same divvying up chores, same long-term plans, same everything. When are these idiots going to learn that there is zero difference?
