Gay Couple Together For 46 Years Finally Ties The Knot: VIDEO


David Mixner points out a wonderful video posted by The New York Times about a couple together for more than 46 years, Lewis Duckett and Billy Jones, who recently got married. The couple were first introduced by a mutual friend. "Before either one of us knew it, we were in love," said Jones. They survived Jones's deployment to Vietnam (they wrote to each other in code), and went on to have children and grandchildren together.

"For most of our forty-six years together, it's been, 'I don't know sort of where I stop and where he begins,' it's been that kind of blending," according to Jones.

The couple has been officially married a little over three months now, and while Duckett points out that, "nothing really feels different," he adds, "It's an enhancement to the relationship that we had."

  6. So sweet. Makes me think of my great-uncle who was with his partner from before WWII until ~1970 when his partner died. I can't imagine what they'd think about gay marriage today.

  12. Wow. I just did the math in my head. If I was to have the same long lasting relationship, I'd need to live to be at least 96 years old! And that's if I magically wake up with a boyfriend tomorrow...

    Congrats to the happy couple!
