It is always good to hear about moments that bring about reconciliation and healing in families. I also like your statement about commitment to those we love not needing to always be formalized. While I cannot congratulate you both I can certainly pray God to bless your commitment to one another and the beginning to healing in your families!

Wow, I am overwhelmed with the replies. Thank you all so much. I thought there would be some negative comments of a political nature which would go against my intent and the sites desire, so to those of you that withheld your thoughts, I thank you for that too. :)

To answer a few questions, (mostly by 1BB). Yes everyone who attended knew the purpose of the event. Yes, arrangements were made at the buffet ahead of time. I am not going to mention the strip buffet, but they were very accommodating. They had a separate section for us. I do worry about sharing too much info and I know that I often do. But that is me. I often hold the telling of an event, say details of a backoff or something for a period of time, to make it less identifying. But on the other hand, I am not going to cower in the corner and refrain from sharing things that I feel like sharing as if I have done something wrong....I haven't. I won't give them that satisfaction of treating myself like a criminal.

1BB, I think your comment about my partner 'being dishonest' in his first marriage is unfair. You don't know the circumstances and specifics of that situation and I am not here to discuss them. That is the type of discussion, I am sure this site doesn't want.

Yes, Axelwolf, we as a people (gays) tend to LOVE our Halloweens. Not sure the origin of that.

No honeymoon, planned, SOOPOO. My life is a honeymoon and it doesn't get any better than that. :)

Fleastiff, I am glad you re-brought up the card counters and pit personnel. One of my closest friend, works the pit of a strip casino. Our friendship began when he backed me off. He did so in a most unusual way, not at the casino, but a few days later (after a rather large hit by me) at a local watering hole that we both frequented. He bought me a beer and told me that he just couldn't allow me to play on his shift any longer. He too is a part-time card counter during his off time and our friendship and exchange of ideas and information has been most beneficial to both. Besides that it turns out that he is a nice guy. When I mention on other sites that I have friends that work in the pits, I am often advised by my fellow counters and AP's that is a very bad idea. But I don't see it that way.

Congratulations, kewlj. I wish you both happiness!

You've been together a long time, but I'll still give my standard wedding advice:

1) Don't sweat the small stuff, and
2) It's all small stuff.

I'm not saying that's true, I'm just saying it's my standard advice.

Enjoy life!

It looks like you may have taken offense to my comment although none was intended. Do you think I'm the only one who thought about this? You referred to your partner's 'straight life' and put straight life in quotes. I'm only going by the information that you provided. Please don't take offense. Sometimes love truly is blind.

Focus on my last sentence where I wished you well. It was sincere.
Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth. - Mahatma Ghandi
