“in a statement, Cheney and his wife, Lynne, said the couple got married in Washington on Friday. The Cheneys said the two had been in a committed relationship for many years and they were delighted that they could take advantage of the ‘opportunity to have the relationship recognized.'”
Same sex marriage is currently recognized in Washington, DC and six other states: Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont. Former Vice President Cheney had been a vocal opponent of same-sex marriage. I hope that this statement that Cheney has made shows a change in belief, especially since the couple has two children. President Obama has recently stated his public support for gay marriage. I want to wish the happy couple good luck in their future.
