    It really makes you wonder why anybody thought it was so important to make sure this couple would never know equality in their lifetimes.

    It is crazy to think marriage has been off the table for these two for 50 years! I am so happy they were able to make the commitment to each other before the end of their lives! Congrats gentlemen!
