I know, I know, band name. In any case, this isn’t meant to be a Great Debate. I’m just wondering if queers here consider getting hitched.
I’ve been invited to a Jewish lesbian wedding. It’s an old high school friend of mine - in fact, the one who dragged me kicking and screaming out of the closet at the tender age of 15, and the only woman I’ve ever slept with (that’s another story). I’m not sure if I’ll be going (logistical and financial reasons), but it will, in fact, be a religious thing, with two days of shabbat followed by the ceremony the next day.
This got me to thinking: one day, when I find Mr. scott evil, do I want to actually get married? At this rate, same-sex marriage will be legal in Canada by the time I actually find someone worth settling down with. I’m not a religious person, so there would be none of that, but certainly a civil ceremony with all the legal crap, then maybe a fantastic party.
The reason I’d have the civil ceremony would be to make it legal, of course.
Nonetheless, I have a bit of an aversion to the idea of having a party with my family & friends there. I think it could be just… well, tacky. I guess it will depend on how I feel about it at the time, but right now, I’d rather just sign some papers.
So the question goes out to SDMB queers: what’s your plan, and what are your opinions on the subject? If you’re the type who thinks you’ll never settle down, you’ll probably change that idea as you get older (IMHO). I certainly did.
