For many years my lover and I discussed marriage with a somber feeling because we knew that we would have to move away from home to be happily  married. We both had dreams of getting married amongst all of our loved ones at home, in the state we were both born and raised it. And while we of course knew we would face opposition from family and friends because of their personal feelings and religious beliefs being able to get married at home was very important to us.
 
In year one I knew I wanted to marry this woman... I think she figured it out around year three (I'm four years older so she gets a pass! lol). Once the news came down on Friday, October 18, 2013 we knew we were going to get married so that weekend we went and picked out wedding bands and the following Monday we applied for a marriage license.

 
Here we are looking super cheesy signing our marriage license application. We set the date for October 31, 2013!
