opening words


Marriage is one of the most remarkable and most courageous of human acts, the promise of two human beings to share life together on all levels—physical, economic, spiritual—a promise made in the face of the certainty of death, the certainty of change, and the uncertainty of everything else. There is nothing else quite like this act, nothing so foolish, nothing so profound.


Performed in San Francisco City Hall, March 10, by the Rev. Barbara Hamilton-Holway and the Rev. Bill Hamilton-Holway. Neff and Rothermel's marriage, one of 4,037 same-sex marriages licensed by the city before the California Supreme Court barred further licenses, is described in this issue.
