So my partner and I have been joking about the eventual ceremony and where we should be registered. We tossed around the idea of Home (aka Homo) Depot because we both get involved in renovation projects (and it's a great place to scope out guys) but finally decided on Cardullo's Gourmet Shop. Actually, neither one of us wants anything that smacks of straight middle class kitch. The actual ceremony will be private with his sister and my younger daughter as our witnesses. Then we'll have a Quaker Marriage at the old Meeting House in Epping, New Hampshire with all our family and friends. My partner is a lifelong atheistic Quaker and while I have no interest in organized religion of any kind, I have come to respect the inclusiveness and the early date at which gays were welcomed into all aspects of the Friends' activities, including marriage. The reception will be at his Center. The hot tub will be open for business.
