As the Supreme Court review marriage equality cases for Prop 8 and DOMA this week, the world as we know it could change in an instant. The right to marry came to the state of New York a little over a year and a half ago and in that time I've been to 2 gay weddings with 4 more on the way between now and September. With the exception of one, all of these couples have been together for more than 5 years, so it makes sense that they'd be eager to make it official as soon as allowed. With the possibility of federal rights and marriage for all, we could see an even bigger onslaught of weddings in the next few years. Which means, you better start saving up. Not for your wedding. For the gifts. Most of us experienced the wedding rush in and our 20s and 30s as all our friends got married, but now there's a new wave of weddings coming. If only there was a way to rollout the weddings so we wouldn't be bombarded with them all at once. But considering how long it's taken to get here, these loving couples shouldn't have to wait any longer. So bring it on I say. Just don't expect anything fancy in the gift department.
Couples in states that can't marry, if marriage equality passes, will you get married right away or wait a few years?
