Iowa Legalizes Gay Marriage
The hot-button issue is back in the news this week, but the latest headlines are coming out of Iowa. America's heartland has become the third state to legalize gay marriage. As of April 27, 2009, gay and lesbian couples in Iowa can officially and legally get married.
If gay marriage were legal everywhere, Nate says he would want to have a wedding one day. "I think people don't necessarily understand is that. … When you want to make that commitment to the person you love, to the person you want to be with forever, you want to have that ceremony and be surrounded by your friends."
When it comes down to it, Nate says he's frustrated he doesn't have the same marriage rights as everyone else. "I don't want to be told that I can't do it," he says.
Stephanie says she's getting married in a pink Tracy Reese dress like the one First Lady Michelle Obama wore on the cover of People magazine last month. "We have two gorgeous little girls that will have gorgeous little dresses," Maryfrances says. "I will just be wearing a white shirt so that they can all stand out."
