ding dong, the bells are gonna chime

Whenever I hear of people getting married, this snippet starts playing in my head. On November 4, the California same-sex marriage will be put to the test. I just read that Brad Pitt has donated monies to oppose the ban on same-sex marriages.

"Because no one has the right to deny another their life, even though they disagree with it, because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn't harm another and because discrimination has no place in America, my vote will be for equality and against Proposition 8," the Times quoted Pitt as saying in a statement.

I applaud these celebrities who acknowledge that everyone has a right to get married, if they so desire. I always thought that getting married was such a hurdle and hassle. Not anymore. In San Francisco, you can start the process online. Obtain the proper form, pay the fees, and pick a time to show up at City Hall to obtain the marriage license. You can even get married half an hour later after getting the license. How easy-peasy is that!

Our friends R & N are getting married the first week of October to coincide with the day they first met. Oh, how sentimental. June may be ideal for traditional weddingss but it looks like October is it for same-sex weddings. Something new, something blue, something old and something borrowed.
