Me on the left holding our New Jersey "Affidavit of Domestic Partnership". That's Whatshisname in the blue shirt next to me ;
Yes we did it this morning at Nine A.M.
The grooms wore denim and khaki, the witness was our dear friend, Miss Tricia VanDerVeer of The Cherry Hill VanDerVeers.
We are now the fourth couple in town who have officially registered as Domestic Partners.
The entire "event" took place at a crowded desk with a pleasant but absent-minded township clerk who had us fill out several pieces of paper, and who actually wished us "good luck" when we handed over the processing fees for her services.
Afterwards we repaired to the local cafe for coffee and breakfast. It was the best food I ever ate in my life.
I don't know, but the sun seems a little bit brighter today, everything is clearer and more in focus.
After eight years, me and Whatshisname are official now.
