Book Description

OUR JOURNEY IS NOT COMPLETE UNTIL OUR GAY BROTHERS AND SISTERS ARE TREATED LIKE ANYONE ELSE UNDER THE LAW – FOR IF WE ARE TRULY CREATED EQUAL, THEN SURELY THE LOVE WE COMMIT TO ONE ANOTHER MUST BE EQUAL AS WELL.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA



20 tales of love, sex, and commitment in the 21st Century—spiritual and scandalous, philosophical and trivial, heartbreaking and hilarious. Every day, thousands of loving couples come together to make a simple legal commitment to each other, but the narrators of Lawfully Wedded Wives tell the unique first-person stories of marrying in the months immediately following the California Supreme Court’s 2008 decision that it was unconstitutional to deny marriage rights to gays and lesbians.

These stories are now more relevant than ever since the Supreme Court in June 2013 affirmed that decision.

Choosing to wed with varying levels of joy and trepidation, this eclectic group of women had at least two things in common: a compelling reason to rush to the altar and a stack of wedding photographs. In their own words, these are the voices of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Moving Tribute to Love and to Brides October 19, 2013
By royram
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The willingness of these brave brides to share their stories in this book is remarkable. I feel honored to have read their words. The editors had a great vision to give voice to a historic moment in the U. S. when a woman is finally able to legally marry the woman she loves.
