In defense of weddings: A lesbian perspective

rainbowweddingcakeBY MEG STREIT

It is not lost on me that when I wake up the morning after my wedding, I’ll be thousands of dollars poorer, but no more legally married than I was the day before, at least in the eyes of most governments. But for me, the fact that I can’t legally get married is actually an incentive to have a wedding. If I can’t have the paperwork, I at least want a memorable party to mark this milestone in my relationship. It’s kind of like how men who aren’t particularly well endowed overcompensate with expensive cars. And I’m okay with that.
