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!

@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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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....

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.

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.

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.

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.
