My partner of nine years and I want to get married. We need your help to do it. All weddings performed legally are now binding for purposes of federal taxes, even if they aren't considered legal in our state of residence. We can finally get married! More ...
Being legally married is a huge step in family security and safety for us. We're hoping to have another baby in the next few years. Our daughter starts school next year. We want rights to each others' current and future children. We want to be able to offer each other and all of our children health insurance. And darn it, we just want to get MARRIED!

We have a trip to Arizona planned for the end of September. It can't be postponed or rescheduled, so now we need some help getting to California to get married and then back to Arizona, since the chances of us getting anywhere near another state in which same sex marriage is legal any time soon are next to zero.

It would have been nice to know about this law change in advance so we could actually put enough money aside for it, right? Anyone care to exercise their support of human rights by helping us hop over to California on rather short notice? We're seriously at the point of accepting gifts/donations/loans/early wedding presents of all kinds (When we have our ceremony at home, we can totally just put some pretty but empty boxes on the table, right? LOL.)! I'd just postpone the entire vacation we already have planned until we can save more, but I work at the 9-1-1 center...vacation is really hard to come by, and we've already paid for the rental house in AZ, and it's nonrefundable.

Everyone loves a gay wedding, right?

Er...we've been together almost 10 years, it's about time we actually get married, right??? Right???

We're planning on having the actual wedding here around Christmas, since it's our favorite time of year, and we've decided it should be an awesome, glorified Christmas party. We realize buying gifts at that time would be a strain on everyone anyway, so if you're able and you'd like to contribute by giving a gift now instead and helping us get there, it'd be amazing. No pressure. We're totally not begging...much.

Share this and spread the word to anyone who might be interested in giving a dollar, fifty cents, anything at all, or even anyone who just might like to hear the story.

We leave for California--with or without enough money--on September 20.

God bless and we love you all,

Sam and Holly
