My grandfather is 90 and my grandmother is 88 and a half. They have been married since 1946.
They sleep in separate, side by side twin beds because my grandfather’s multiple physical problems cause him to be disruptive in his sleep.
At his 90th birthday party, my mom and my aunt tried to sit on either side of him at the restaurant, so they could feed him, but he insisted that Grandma replace one of them.
Afterwards, back at the house, he was explaining to them that he didn’t care about food, just being next to her.
Remember, they’re in separate beds.
Now, tell me again why same-sex marriage is so different from cis-man-cis-woman marriage? Or why some people act like you’re talking about your sex life or being inappropriate in front of children if you mention a same-sex partner?
I hope I get to sit next to my spouse for 68 years, too.
