Recently I have begun to truly understand things that I never fully grasped before. The biggest thing I understand today is the desire to get and be married. To anyone that truly knows me, that should come as quite a shock. And once this understanding took hold, it began to grow. And to want. Lately I have been so consumed by these thoughts that I actually started to make plans in my head.
I must make it clear, however, that I really don’t want to get married. Especially since marriage is supposedly strictly defined as “the union of one man and one woman in the eyes of God.” Most especially since this definition prevents my gay and lesbian brothers and sisters from making a legally-recognized, protected, and binding lifelong commitment to each other. I have absolutely no interest in partaking of an institution that is supposed to be born out of two people loving each other and wanting to give themselves to each other “until death do [they] part”, if it somehow excludes ANY two consenting adults of ANY gender from doing just that. I will NEVER get “married” for this reason. However, if civil unions or domestic partnerships ever become legalized, then I would like to seek to formalize the relationship I have with the man that I love. I would apply for a License of Civil Union or Domestic Partnership, whichever it shall be deemed, or its equivalent.
But what I want to do today, right now this very moment, is proclaim to everyone near and far how much I love +Ron Carney
. I want to tell everyone how my heart fills with joy at the very thought of him. How a mere glance from him will alight a smile upon my lips. How his barest touch sends electric waves throughout my body. How his voice and laughter make my soul dance. Just the knowledge of his presence in my life makes me happier than I have ever been. He makes me feel safe, secure, protected, treasured, cherished, beautiful, sexy, funny, special, and loved. I love him more than I have ever loved anyone in my whole life. And I want to spend the rest of my days with him until my last breath.
So, by the powers vested in me by MYSELF (because I believe in ME and I don't need anyone/thing else to give me power) and the internet (because what is truly more powerful than that? It is said that once you put something on the internet, it is there forever.), I hereby declare myself as his forever more. I love you, baby. Thank you for sharing my never-ending adventure with me. I’m so very glad to have you by my side. <3
