REAL Important news! Barney Frank marries longtime partner..LOLSubmitted by go213mph on Sun, 07/08/2012 - 09:50
Gotta Love what's "news" in todays world. I don't care how people choose to live their lives, but as a heterosexual male it's impossible for me to read about 2 guys "gettin together" without wanting to puke because of the visions that pop into my head about the discusting and unnatural places that they will be putting their love into each other. Like I said...to each his own, but yuck!
"Rep. Barney Frank married his longtime partner, Jim Ready, in Newton, Massachusetts on Saturday evening.
Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, tied the knot at the Boston Marriott hotel in a ceremony officiated by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, his office announced in a press release. More than 300 guests were in attendance.
Frank, who has decided not to run for re-election, is the first sitting member of Congress to enter a same-sex marriage.
Though he didn't plan the wedding around his retirement, Frank has said that the timing worked out well.
"There’s an unintended benefit," he told New York magazine earlier this year. "I want to get married. I do think, to be honest, if I was running for reelection, I might have tried to put the marriage off until after the election, because it just becomes a complication. But I did want to get married while I was still in office. I think it’s important that my colleagues interact with a married gay man."
