Mary Cheney, the daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney, got married to longtime partner Heather Poe Friday.
“Mary and Heather have been in a committed relationship for many years, and we are delighted that they were able to take advantage of the opportunity to have that relationship recognized,” the Cheneys said in a statement. The news was first reported by the Daily Caller, a conservative Web site.
“Very happy to announce that as of this morning, Heather and I are legally married (at least in DC),” Cheney wrote on her Facebook page, according to People magazine. “20 years to the day after our first date.”
So the Cheney's still cannot say they are happy that their daughter has married.
Cheney was in the WHite House for 8 years and couldn't support his own daughter's life publicly. He couldn't support gay marriage so his daughter could live a normal life. That is most difficult for me to accept as we do have friends with gay kids. Most people over time will have friends in the same situation. I have seen nothing but support for these friends - a clear difference from what I have seen from our previous VP.
