Wow and thanks to this comment, now everyone will think that…LOL. But real talk, though, most of the Gay couples I know live in separate households and are not married. So this is not unique.
It was good to hear the perspective of a married couple in terms of relationships. It was refreshing to hear that they met in a forum beyond A4A, Grindr, etc. So, it’s still possible for us to meet our soulmates at the library or on the bus stop and to connect on a deeper level than solely physical and to actually have conversations about our goals and the future?!?! That’s awesome to witness.
I found the mentioning and idea of limitless possibilities to be freeing.
From what I heard, their partnership and decision-making skills serve as a great example in terms of what’s possible within same-sex relationships. I appreciate how they didn’t present the rose colored glasses version of marriage and relationships because the reality is that there will be challenges with dealing with one another, family, co-workers, friends, church members, and public opinion as a whole.
Significant progress has been made, but there is still so much work to do within ourselves and within the community. If what this couple has is something that we individually aspire to have as well, then we’re going to have to put in the work to reach that goal just like they did. It didn’t just land in their lap and it didn’t happen overnight. It took work. It took getting over obstacles. It took resilience.
Think about it…are you ready?
Eventually these black churches will have to give up the fight. They are not going to be able to keep out black same sex couples once there legally married. I cannot see a legally married black same sex couples denying their marriage just because they are in a church that will not marry them. Once the same sex couples obtain offices in the church the battle is won. The church leaders know that is only a matter of time 🙂

WoW. @Nick said “I know couples that have been together, 4, 5, 6 years that still live in separate house holds…” Throwing shots at my other Cypher Avenue homeboy? That’s just so wrong. LOL
