BUT THERE IS A DARK SIDE to gay marriage.
Our friend Dan was visiting from St. Louis, a city in a state where he thought he’d never live to see the possibility that he could wed. And now it’s law. A law that brought two sad truths home to him.
He wondered: “So am I a spinster now?”
And he lamented: “Well, now I guess marriage is just one more thing I’ve failed at.”
