Gay Wedding Video of the Day: Paul and David


Nothing flashy here, just, as Good As You notes:

"It's just an army man, Paul, and his love, David, in a non-church setting, entering into a *civil* marriage contract in the state of Iowa. This is what we equal rights activists are fighting to achieve in all states and federally, even as our opposition continues to throw religious asides our way."

  2. Republican legislators screaming bloody murder about the soldier GAY marrying in his uniform. They'll demand a court martial.

  4. I think this video is far more moving than any fancy church wedding I've ever attended or seen on video. Reduced to the essentials, with only the power of love on display.

  13. What was he ripping off the shirt at the end? Was he changing the name on the blouse (I think that's the right terminology)?

  14. Who is the judge? Would love to have him officiate our wedding in August!

  15. Beautiful except, who wrote those vows? I expected someone to break into song at any moment. I would have had a hard time keeping a straight face if I had been either one of them… but congratulations! Sorry to be a drag…

  16. David and Paul really seem to love each other. I wish them the best.

    Ironic that this wedding took place in Iowa, the same place that threw out the liberal judges for implementing gay marriage. The people of Iowa seemed really angry over the judges decision.....But they didn't vote a Republican majority into the state Senate in 2010, which is what they would have to do to get a state constitutional amendment overturning gay marriage started. My guess is that they had a temper tantrum and then gradually came to see gay weddings as either non-controversial or maybe...poignant? But whatever caused their change of heart, it looks as if gay marriage is here to stay in Iowa.

    And Robert, congrats!

  18. The guy on the right is very happy in his pants! ;)

  19. I really believe that getting even ONE of these wedding videos in front of gay kids could have a more transformational effect than dozens of episodes Will & Grace or Glee or even Modern Family.

    Hmm. Maybe that's exactly what the wingnuts are afraid of.

  20. Congratulations

  21. lol, they are so cute.

    The ripping of the shirt is an Army thing when you marry someone in the service, he gets to keep that patch. ;)

    I can't to live in a state where I can do that.
