Over the past two years, I have been privileged to officiate at 3 same gender weddings–which are legal now in New York state. Adding them up together the couples have had over 35 years –in relationship with each other– before marriage. (This stat is a bit skewed by the couple who had been together 28.)
In all these ceremonies–including the planning and rehearsing–the presence of the Divine in the love reflected by the couples has been real, palpable, powerful, and AMAZING. I wish this were true in 100 percent of all the other weddings I’ve officiated.
