"How many more gay people does God have to create before we ask ourselves whether or not God actually wants them around?" Rep. Steve Simon of Minnesota asked.

Well, I talked to my parents. I dropped the suggestion that Nick and I might be coming to visit and maybe get married while we are there. Mom was not overly exuberant, but she was not against it. I talked to Dad and he was a bit quiet. I asked if he was ok with it. He was quiet. I asked if he needed some time to think about it. He said, "yes," and gave the phone to my Mom.
Mom and I chatted a bit more and Dad decided he would be ok with it.
I told Mom that we didn't care who showed up or not. If they can't deal with it, so be it!
So we are looking at a *cue chirping birds* SPRING WEDDING! We are planning on driving to Iowa in the fall to visit and to begin to make some plans. This way, it gives people some time to get used to the idea. My cousin from Denver already told me that she intends to be there!
I keep forgetting that I have to give people time to get used to the situation. I have been living it for many years, but they are still learning to adjust.

Good for you. I am glad my rural state is so progressive.
good luck with this all!
Best wishes. Given the time, I think they will come around. They may not be thrilled, but accepting, and even that can be a major step forward in our world.
