That’s a very great question and the answer may be surprising. Up to today’s date, no I never have.

Same sex marriage is one of the most controversial issues not only in America, but, I believe, all over the world.

For me, I just don’t get it. Why is it that after doing thousands of wedding ceremonies around the world, I do not have the right to do my own?

Forget about my sexual preference and forget about my religious beliefs (by the way, I consider myself to be very spiritual), why is it that as I am in the process of planning my wedding with my partner, this means absolutely nothing legally? (Other than throwing one big, fun party with lots of new traditions?)

I find myself hesitating about making my wedding public because of the reactions of others when ultimately my only goal is to make public a commitment that after 61 years of looking I found someone I’d like to spend the rest of my life with. The same as any one else.

How do you feel about same sex marriages?
