A same-sex couple who have been together for nearly 40 years finally got married at a local hospital. NBC10 was there for the emotional wedding.
After being together for nearly 40 years and in the midst of a health crisis, a local same-sex couple finally tied the knot at a local hospital.
Staff members at Riddle Hospital in Media, Delaware County held a wedding ceremony for Carol and Bobbie Wednesday afternoon. The couple, who have been together for 38 years, say they’ve wanted to get married for awhile but were unable to do so due to Pennsylvania’s marriage law.
. FOUR FRIGGIN DECADES!!!
That’s longer than most of the people on Tumblr have been alive.
While I am touched by the humanity of the Riddle Hospital staff, I’m really pissed off that these women had to wait until one was on her deathbed before their four decade long relationship was finally recognized by the state. The audacity of people who so selfishly cling to their own wants that they insist on interfering with the lives of others just blows my fn mind.
Congratulations to Carol and Bobbie. I’m hoping that Carol gets well enough that maybe they can spend some time together as a married couple.
Damn. Now my eyes are watering. Stupid allergies. :\
