I'm an American living in Germany and I married my partner in 2001. We've been together since then and it always makes me a bit sad to see how long it it taking for some states or the whole United States to have a law for same sex couples. We are so accepted here in Germany and it is such a lovely feeling to be a practicing religious person and a person of civil society who can simply live a normal life with my partner. Our niece who was born right before our wedding has always known us as a couple and doesn't know it as being different. Although, she asked us when we were going to have kids like her mom and dad have her! :0)
