    First married couple?? Perhaps the first same-sex married couple?

    Wow so is this picture from 1889? I would assume the first married couple in Washington state would be somewhere around when it first became a state.

    Oh wait, did you mean "Washington State`s 1st Married Same Sex Couple"? Oh my mistake.

    What an abomination. Wretched, horrible, perverted sexual deviants. Hell welcomes your sin! Why I bet these disgusting old ladies would invite you into their home for a cup of tea and send you off with some nice hard candy. America will burn for allowing such a travesty.

    Take a good look!
    Those are those horrible same-sex couples you`re heard tell of on Fox News. The same ones that will be the downfall of all civilization.

    Good for them, why would you not allow 2 people who are in love with each other to get married, they have been together for 35 years I think I read earlier today. I`ll go out on a limb here and say thats longer than the average heterosexual marriage lasts. They are committed to each other and deserve the equal rights that come with marriage.

    This is the beginning of the end! Just watch, as Washington slowly slips into a hotbed of sin, depravity, evil and anarchy, just like happened to Canada.... no, wait....

    I love the scumbag politicians crowding round for a photo opportunity, like they`re not part of a system that`s been repressing (and even at times criminalising) these poor feckers for most of their adult lives.

    Why do you have to be so negative MacGuffin? How do you know these weren`t the people who have been fighting for this the whole time? Senator Ed Murray has been pushing for gay marriage for I think 15 years.

    These aren`t the first married gay couple. They were the first to get a license. Washington state has a 3 day waiting period to get married. The earliest they can get married is Sunday.

    Our first gay marriage was between two men both named Michael. I hope neither of them took the other guys last name...

    Quackor: "who cares?"

    Everyone who believes in civil rights, thinks that equal rights matter, or has any empathy for a long oppressed group of human beings finally achieving those rights.

    Port Townsend, WA.
    It was strange I was looking at the front page of the paper yesterday and the two headlines were Q&As on legal weed, and legal same sex marriage. I had to wonder if that kind of thing had ever happened before.
    Not a bad state, all things considered.

    Yay, married in the eyes of God. Oh wait, the bible forbids it. It`s OK, we pick and choose the bits we agree with nowadays.

    Drawman61:
    Oh, yeah. I guess you`re right. So I won`t go to jail for not honoring my father and mother, huh? Or for coveting my neighbor`s ox, or shopping on Sunday, or saying "goddamn." That`ll make for a big change, especially seeing as we live in a religiocracy.

    @Carmium - i hope you`ve never worn poly blend material.

    Leviticus 19:19 "`Keep my decrees. "`Do not mate different kinds of animals. "`Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed. "`Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.

    this reminds me of a story I read many years ago about a two women who had been together for over 40 years, both having been married heterosexually previously, one with children from that marriage. They shared a home, one partner passed, the one with children, they then barred their mother`s partner from hospital, funeral, and finally from her home, as it was legally their`s by inheritance. It was one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever learned. I was so moved by that, THIS is a beautiful thing. This is where an evolved population has made an evolved decision, `though, i still can`t believe it has any thing to do with legal rights, these are Human rights!
