    The only mental image more disturbing than two old people getting it on just happens to be two 90 year old ladies scissoring the poo out of each other.

    read they`d been together 30 years.
    but of course, we all know us gay people don`t know anyting about committed relationships.
    That`s just silly!

    Waited 30 years and still didn`t bother dressing up for it?

    still i guess it`s not the only anti-climax you have at that age. Good luck to them both.

    "Waited 30 years and still didn`t bother dressing up for it?"

    Marriage is about the life after the ceremony.

    My opinion is that those who go all out for a lavish fancy ceremony are compensating for some fundamental lack in the relationship.

    Best photo of the week ! I`m gratified to know slowly but surely America is embracing the fact that homosexuality is not going to just go away if ignored , I wish i could understand truely what this means for the homosexual community because it must be more than a mere victory it has to be close to the acceptance (close but not quite which sucks)everyone deserves regardless of race, color, creed, sexual preference or bubble gum flavor

    Ya Martin is right. Encouraging equality even when we don`t agree is disgusting. How could anyone justify doing what they want with their lives despite being told others dislike it. They should be forced to live half-lives in the eyes of the law because some people don`t like what they do.

    Feel free to exit our earth anytime you are ready Martin.

    @honkeylips

    "Good for them and all, but I have to say why bother they`ve probably been together for 50 years so why spend that last week of life arguing as a married couple."

    Some close friends of mine, after being together 20+ years, got a civil partnership (same rights as marriage here) simply because one of them was going for an operation and, if the worst happened (he`s in his 70s), he wanted his partner to not lose their home (having to sell it to pay inheritance tax) and still be able to live off of his pension (widows/widowers inherit their deceased spouse`s pensions).

    Please note these are things that straight married couples can do, and that is taken for granted by them.

    I imagine similar pragmatic considerations may be at work here...aside from the simple principle of the thing.

    My school`s cafeteria was run by a lesbian couple. both were very sweet women who i could always count on and so could everybody, like they also played a part in our education. One passed away in 2008, i cried then and im shedding a tear now, because 2 years later, my country legalized same sex marriage and adoption. That`s only one Imagine how many couples got separated by death who could never marry because of religion. This makes me wanna go and seriously hurt a conservative christian.

    An iconic photograph. It is a reminder that legalizing an equal-gender partnership has a lot to do with equal rights when it comes to taxation, signing contracts, taking over responsibility for each other (e.g. when one of then gets ill) or even passing on one`s possession after death.

    Sex is overrated in many comments below.
