a big day for weddings in the city

Chelsea residents Phyllis Siegel, 77, and Connie Kopelov, 85, got hitched at the marriage bureau on Worth Street in Lower Manhattan at 9:02 a.m., setting off wedding bells across Gotham.  story

one day people will look back and say, can you believe not so long ago  it wasn’t legal to marry who ever you want?  it’s kind of like remembering the times when people owned slaves or when women couldn’t vote.  i’m happy for chelsea & phyllis, and i’m happy for all the people who can now marry whoever they want to marry.    yay for you!   may you always be happy!  yay for ny!
