Takei Obtains Wedding License
<font color=yellow>George Takei</font> and his partner <font color=yellow>Brad Altman</font> were among the first same-sex couples to obtain marriage licenses in West Hollywood yesterday.<p>As reported by <A class="link" HREF=""></A>, after twenty-one years together, the couple made plans to marry on September 14, after gay marriage was legalized in California last month. <p>"I think it's a glorious California morning to make history," said Takei, as reported by the <A class="link" HREF="">Los Angeles Times</A>. "Congratulations to all of us. May equality live long and prosper." <p>Takei and Altman paid $70 for the marriage license, which is good for ninety days. They had not married earlier in San Francisco (which had permitted gay marriage in 2004) because they wanted the marriage to be legal. The San Francisco marriages were voided by court order. And they did not marry in Massachusetts where gay marriage is legal, because they wished to marry in California.<p>"It's going to be the only day like this in our lives and it is the only day like this in the history of America," said Takei.<p>To read more, head to the articles located <A class="link" HREF="">here</A>, <A class="link" HREF="">here</A> and <A class="link" HREF="">here</A>.<center></center>

Congratulations! Even if they missed the chance to recite their wedding vows in Klingon. :klingon:

It's cool. There was a pic of the couple in the SF chronicle the other day. I'm happy for them.

TrekToday just can't get enough of this.

During this news cycle there was "Takei On Recent California Marriage Decision" (May 17).

Then there was "Takei Sets The Date" (June 2).

Then there was "Takei Obtains Wedding License (June 18).

I can't wait for "Highlights of Takei's Wedding Night." Maybe George and Brad could put some videos up on the Web. The world needs to see how two aging homosexuals consumate their relationship.

Oh, wait. That ship sailed long ago.

Still, it's a big occasion. Viagra could take care of any performance problems. BTW, why aren't there any gay men in ads for erectile dysfunction medication? George and Brad could be the first. I think it's a great idea. Millions of people know George already.

Back to the wedding night, the loving couple could supercharge their desire with a little visual stimulation. I suggest some mainstream movies (not porn--these are classy people). George and Brad could watch Brokeback Mountain (so obvious), High School Musical (lots of young men there too--or so I hear :o) and Deliverance (save this for the scene where Ned Beatty squeals like a pig as he experiences penetration).

Anyone have ideas for the next story. How about Takei's Carnival Cruise honeymoon?
