Military Pride

Vic and Mark blog(Major Vic Holmes (ret) USAF and Mark Phariss are plaintiffs in the Texas same sex lawsuit before the Supreme Court.)

June is generally a great time of the year in North Texas, but this year June is even more special – and not just for North Texas!

This month, probably on June 29, the U.S. Supreme Court (SCOTUS) will issue its decision in the marriage equality cases currently pending before it. We believe SCOTUS will rule in favor of marriage equality on either on a 5-4 or a 6-3 basis.

We are so confident SCOTUS will rule for marriage equality that we have contracted with and paid deposits to a facility, a florist, a videographer, a photographer and a band for a November wedding in North Texas. We have even had ‘Save the Date’ cards printed and are in the process of mailing them. In short, we have put our money where our mouth is.

A favorable SCOTUS’ decision this month will enable us to finally marry after almost 18 years together and after almost 2 years of litigation trying to obtain the right to marry. We can’t wait!

And we are excited for the hundreds of thousands of LGBT Americans currently being deprived the right to marry the one they love. June 2015 is the month this injustice will end!!
