The most important thing from this story is...

Although Roy and David think of themselves as being married, their relationship has not been formalized in a ceremony. "We've never felt any need to," Roy said. "We know how we feel about each other and that's all that's important."

Why can't all queers think this way?

And why is this of any importance/significance to you? Some straight life.

Is it wrong for me to be laughing at your impotence like this? I mean, you tried so hard to get it up only to fall this limp. I shouldn't laugh at your little failings, but you insist on being so public about them.

Interesting. My spouse and I became a couple 40 years ago, this year. We felt the same way back then, that as long as we knew, and we were committed, that was enough. My, my how times change. Now I could not comprehend thinking in that vein.
