Self Gloss: We Got Married

Mon Feb 24, 2014 2:10 am

So last night, psal1011 and I tied the knot at our home with 40 good friends around. It was the fifth anniversary of our first date.

The man I've called my husband for three years is now legally just that. Oddly, neither of us feels like much has changed, other than the fact that our house is now a mess (we just meticulously cleaned it before the party!).

On another note, we have way too much beer, wine, and booze. So if anyone in the Bay Area wants some of any of these (and can legally transport opened containers in their vehicles by virtue of a physically isolated trunk), fire me a PM.  

Now, please show me some empty cargo bays.

someone made a meme of an empty cargo bay that said: "This is the cargo bay full of people who care" and it became an A.net tradition for self-gloss threads.

Congratulations - I hope your union is an enduring one, built upon trust and mutual respect.

At 31 years (in a month or so) married, I can offer this advice: there is no such thing as winning an argument with someone you love, and if you find yourself trying to do so, you're on the wrong path. Focus always on the common ground and the common good, be kind - and the details will tend to themselves.

Congrats!

After 45 years (in April) "She Who Must Be Obeyed" & I have seen life change many times and we have been stronger getting through the difficult years because we have been together. My hope for you and yours is that you are able to share those good (and sometimes challenging) times together and that it continually makes your relationship stronger.

As far as a honeymoon tip - mine is a Med Cruise. About 11 days in a totally different world where you can be away from work and the traditional day to day things; and can explore some new things together.

Our plan:
DL 767-300 from SFO to DTW
AF A343 from DTW to CDG
AF A32X from CDG to BCN
CELEBRITY EQUINOX Med cruise (gay cruise, of course...this will be in August) out of BCN to Malta, Italy, Monte Carlo, Ibiza, and back to BCN.
AF A32X BCN-CDG-TXL
AF A32X TXL-CDG
AF A388 CDG-SFO

That will be my first A340 and first A380.

Many, many, many congratulations Doc! As a happily married man (in a gay relationship), I can tell you that married life is great and there is something very special about being able to talk about your "spouse" or "husband". Having your relationship recognized on a legal status does add substance to it, even if the "love" for each other was exactly the same before and after the wedding ceremony.

I wish you many, many years of happiness together!
