Sneaking off to go get married

Jerame and I thought we'd sneak off to Canada and get hitched since we're so close. It's hard to look at Windsor across the river and not want to join in equality. We chose Bruce and Brylo as our best man and bridesmaid.

It didn't happen though. We don't have copies of our birth certificates.

Rather like civil unions, eh? Close - but no cigar.

So you dodged the bullet. *Sigh of relief.*

JK! That sucks for you guys, but you can always plan another trip to Canada. And from what I hear, they've got liberal policies in regards to certain libations, as well as free health care. I hate Canada. But that's a good enough reason to plan a trip if you as me. ;^)

Bill looked awful cute in the white dress that he had on for the (almost) occasion.

Bil, why no pics of that? Bruce, you're such a tease!

The Canadians wanted some kind of piece a paper showing that you both were born?

I could have told them that much.

I guess they aren't the great big enlightened "super-blue-51st-state-to-the-north" we've alwayas heard about.

Yeah, I'm with Serena, where are the pictures? I know you have a camera up there, Bil....

Congratulations on your almost-marriage. But it's probably better if you have it all planned out so it's romantic and the people that you want to be there, are.

A birth certificate isn't that hard to get..
Everyone should have one, even better when you have one with the right sex on it.


Get your BC's, go back north when its warmer and you're ready to tie the knot, and enjoy Toronto for your honeymoon. You two deserve to be able to make your commitment as legally and morally binding as me and my wife did 3 years ago, and I hope you're as happy as we are.

SLUTS! You guys just want to do it without Jesus shaming you for premarital sex!

Well you have my blessing.
