My partner and I experienced together the gentle compassionate proceedings. It was beautiful. And it was gratifying to see what portends to be a true partnership with real humans that experience real human feelings and experiences with this royal couple. Our sadness comes from the fact that our commitment ceremony is still not thought of as being legitimate by some people of faith. You see we are 2 women. And although we are both very successful in the world at large (I have my masters and run my own business, my partner has her doctorate and is a professor, researcher, both of us are published authors, grandparents etc.) our relationship is not accepted in many religious institutions. It is our hope and belief that this will change and we will be embraced by people of faith as the royal couple experienced on 4/29/11.
