18 Years of Commitment

(Special editorial post by Wade)

No, this isn’t a post about how long we have left before our kids leave the house. That’s a post for another day! Today marks 18 years since Heather and I started ‘going out’. She mentioned it to me while I was getting ready for work this morning, and it just struck me what an accomplishment that is in these times of disposable marriage.

Along those lines, I wanted to pass on this petition request on behalf of the more than 18,000 same-sex couples that were married in California last year before the passage of Prop 8.


“Fidelity”: Don’t Divorce… from Courage Campaign on Vimeo.

Ken Starr, who led the campaign to impeach President Bill Clinton, filed a legal brief last month — on behalf of the “Yes on 8” campaign — that would forcibly divorce 18,000 same-sex couples that were married in California last year before the passage of Prop 8.

Watch “Fidelity” and sign our letter to the state Supreme Court before they hear oral arguments in the case on March 5. Tell the Supreme Court to invalidate Prop 8, reject Ken Starr’s case, and let loving, committed couples marry. DEADLINE EXTENDED: March 2.

223,028 people have signed this letter (as of Friday, February 13). Our new Courage Campaign community goal is 250,000 signers. Will you add your name now?

  1. Wade,
    It is an accomplishment and it is indicative of the commitment that you two have to your marriage and to each other. In December 2008 Kelly and I celebrated our 20th. wedding anniversary. Kelly has been married half her life. (You do the math)
    Happy V.D. from both of us.
    Love always,
    Dad & Kelly

  2. I so remember you coming to the house, with a candle and tablecloth and flowers, and I don’t remember what else (getting old) and had a picnic on the front porch for Heather (I do believe it was a school night, so ya’ll couldn’t go anywhere) but it was sooooooo romantic. I think you won her (and me) over right then.
    I love you both. Happy Valentines Day to you all.
    Love, Mom (Nana)
