My father is wonderful. Always been supportive, loves me regardless, and tries really really hard to be politically correct, with often hilarious results. Anyway, when I told him that my fiance and I were going to have a church ceremony (imagine a church in a town with less than 10,000 people is excite to 'marry' lesbians!), he was really confused and said that since we couldn't really get married, why not just have a little party with family instead? He talked about how much cheaper it would be (he and my mom aren't helping financially for perfectly acceptable reasons of their own). I had no real comeback except that my fiance and I just want to do it that way. It's important that we be united in front of God and that we celebrate with our family and friends. I guess....is it weird that we want to have such a traditional ceremony/reception even though we can't get legally married? We've been calling it a wedding and saying we're getting married...now I'm unsure that saying that it alright...GAH!
