Sharon McCann Posted almost 2 years ago What's your favourite heartwarming story? Not too long ago I was able to be present at the wedding of two men. They had been together for over 20 years when the state they lived in finally legalized marriage for them. I'll call them Brian and Doug. Brian's family was very accepting and open and cared deeply for Brian and Doug. Doug's family, on the other hand had thrown Doug out many years before and had wanted nothing to do with him. When it came time for the ceremony Brian's family planned a small change to the ceremony with the minister. After he asked each "Do you take this man", the minister said to the congregation and said, "Do you take this couple as part of your family?" The plan had been made by Brian's parents. They wanted Doug to know he had a family that would love him. So, when the minister asked the question he was speaking to Brian's parents who immediately stood and said, "We do." But, with n idea what was going to happen, all of Brian's family, brothers, sister, cousins, aunts Uncles - the entire clan stood and said, "We do." The entire congregation then stood. Brian and Doug wept heartily and lived happily ever after.
