The love story...
It was a cool rainy (yes, rainy) day in San Francisco, and Brian was waiting for his bus at a bus stop. Jay, who was also there waiting for his bus noticed that Brian was wearing shorts, and made a remark about how it was such an 'un-shorts' kind of day. That made Brian laugh, broke the ice and soon they were having a lovely conversation. They met again at the same bus stop the next day, and rest, as they say, is history.
Jay and Brian have been together for nineteen years. Yes, nineteen! It takes a special kind of relationship, full of love, patience, understanding and grace to cultivate a relationship, and knowing Jay and Brian, this is no surprise. One of the main reasons Jay and Brian waited so long was because they wanted to get married when same sex weddings became legal across the country, not just in a few states. They could have easily eloped to Vermont to get married, but they waited. And, that wait was over on June 26, 2015 when Supreme Court passed the law that made same sex marriage legal in all states in the US.
So, this year, Jay and Brian will be finally tying the knot knowing that equal love is everywhere and that their celebrations will have true meaning.
