These Grandfathers Getting Married Might Be The Best Thing You See Today

The New York Times first posted this video of two men who had been together since the Vietnam War, adopted a baby, became grandfathers, and finally got married.

Lewis Duckett and Billy Jones have been together a long time.

They were introduced through a mutual friend and…

They wrote just about every day when Billy was deployed to Vietnam.

But they had to be careful, and wrote in code so their relationship was kept secret.

Then they adopted a child. They’re now grandfathers.

I mean of course upper/middle class white kids from good families are always the ones who rail the hardest against gay-marriage-as-assimilation because like, they are incapable of seeing anything but their own experience and viewing marriage as anything but a reason to spend money

so here is a reminder that marriage is an immigration issue, marriage is a housing issue, marriage is a financial issue, marriage is a healthcare issue, marriage is a child protection/custody issue, marriage is a cultural issue, marriage is not just “assimilation”, it is LITERALLY sometimes life and death.

Same-sex spouses, who cannot divide their labor based on preexisting gender norms, must approach marriage differently than their heterosexual peers. From sex to fighting, from child-rearing to chores, they must hammer out every last detail of domestic life without falling back on assumptions about who will do what. In this regard, they provide an example that can be enlightening to all couples. Critics warn of an institution rendered “genderless.” But if a genderless marriage is a marriage in which the wife is not automatically expected to be responsible for school forms and child care and dinner preparation and birthday parties and midnight feedings and holiday shopping, I think it’s fair to say that many heterosexual women would cry “Bring it on!”

[…]

Gay marriage can function as a controlled experiment, helping us see which aspects of marital difficulty are truly rooted in gender and which are not. A growing body of social science has begun to compare straight and same-sex couples in an attempt to get at the question of what is female, what is male. Some of the findings are surprising.

Fantastic, necessary article by Liza Mundy on what gay couples can teach us about healthy, happy marriages as society’s conception of marriage in general continues to evolve.

Even the penguins can attest.

It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

If I ever go back to flying, I would want to work for Virgin America. This just sort of reinforces that. 

Canada is the best.
