U.S. Marine Corps Captain Matthew Phelps wed Ben Schock this Saturday in Seattle. Captain Phelps famously proposed to Schock this past December, becoming the first gay couple ever to do so at the White House.   

As you may recall, Phelps and Schock have been outspoken about the damage DOMA has caused gay military couples such as themselves. 

Congratulations to the happy couple!

  9. Helen, you have no idea what goes on in ppl's lives. Do not pretend you do.

  10. Obviousness is not a flaw.

    Congrats to the cute couple. I wish I could have witnessed their wedding, but I'd settle for watching the honeymoon.

  11. helen--what would be said about that if they're not? And wtf makes you think it's your place to have an opinion on the subject?

    you'd be very, very surprised, I think, at some of the fem twinkly guys who I put my legs up for--after they got it from me.

  13. I hate it how people feel free to comment on the sexual positions of gay couples. I don't look at a straight couple and make assumptions about their sex lives. Never said "oh she totally loves sucking d***" or "he must love eating her p**** while looking at str8 wedding pics.

  14. I just always assume that everyone is versatile anyway. Don't know why straight people never remember about versatile.....

  15. @ anon: some straight (and gay) people are to limited and unimaginative to realize that not everything falls into neat little binary categories.

  16. "too limited" dammit!

  17. Some of you trolls/negative nancy's are the worst. Bitter, bitter people.

    That being said, I wish the happy couple nothing but joy and love for the rest of their lives.

  18. yes, not everything falls into neat little binary boxes...

    but this does!

  19. Although I do think the age difference is kind of icky.

  20. Looks like a dad and his son.

  22. I bet the old one is short and thick, while the boy is long and skinny. That's how it always is.

  23. Come on, top/bottom people.
    You're just jealous *you* didn't get the hot, straight-acting man in uniform.
    Admit it.
    It says more about you than about them, doesn't it?

  24. "the first gay couple to propose at the White House"??

    lol, so this is really a *thing* to be a first at?

    some gays are just attention starved!...next up, the first openly gay couple to propose at the corner of Carnegie Hall! ..then the first gay couple to wear red blazers in the daylight while eating ice-cream!
    Has anyone called the Guiness people?
