Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley are married!

A big congratulations to Dustin Lance Black and Tom Daley who got married earlier today. The Sun reports: Just 50 close friends and relatives gathered at the lavish five-star golf resort in Dartmoor national park, 30 miles from Plymouth, Devon, where Tom grew up.

Lance’s family flew in from California and the couple hired out the entire 58-room hotel for the weekend. The intimate civil partnership ceremony was held in the castle’s stunning Cathedral Room to the strains of a string quartet.

It was followed by a three-course cordon-bleu meal with champagne and wine and a “massive cake” personally ordered by Tom.

The guests were then set to party into the early hours in the hotel’s spacious Dartmoor Suite ballroom. Tom wore a burgundy suit and Lance was dressed in a navy suit and white shirt

    I know everyone sets the terms of their relationship, but if there’s no sexual fidelity why get “married?” There’s report after report of their sexual liaisons with others. It’s a little demeaning to couples that work on more integrated partnerships. What does being “married” mean anymore if it’s basically for show? Better social media ratings?

    Congrats to Tom and Dustin. May they have a happy, long and prosperous life together.

    @countervail, I don’t understand your thinking that people in open marriages demeans couples who are not. If you are confident that what you have in your marriage is genuine and authentic for you, then it shouldn’t matter what other couples do. Your reasoning is parallel to straight people who say why should gays get married if they can’t procreate within the marriage.

    So what does being “married” mean anymore? For me and my spouse, marriage is about forming a social economic unit. It means we can receive the other spouse’s social security benefits and/or pension after they die, we can file joint tax returns and we can receive other benefits like medical coverage for the spouse who isn’t covered.

    My husband and I got married because we knew for us the economic benefits would help us financially in a substantial way. That’s a big chunk of what being “married” means to us. We already knew that after 35 years of being together that we loved each other regardless of being married or not.

    So please, don’t judge other couples and their motivation for marriage. We all have our reasons on why we marry or do not marry.

    countervail says:

    The difference, and this is not my judgment, is that marriage, in any form it’s been conceived, suggests a sexual fidelity between the spouses. We know that these two have not been exclusive through their relationship so far. It doesn’t affect my relationship, but I can’t help being struck by the hypocrisy. And that in turn reflects on all marriages, it’s almost making fun of of the idea. Same-sex couples have worked so hard for access to the legal recognition of their relationship, and now we have celebrities using it, at least in part, for their self-promotion with little real commitment to what it implies.

  5. I wish both Tom and Dustin a very Sweet Happy Life. May god watch both of you. 2 very handsome Men.

  6. Mazel Tov Gentlemen!

    Live Long And Prosper!

  7. Their both very lucky, for there are people who dont cherish their marriage as much, or who want nothing more than to find that guy to settle down with, after several years of enjoying the gay scene and many friends, only to fall ill or disabled at a young age, unable to continue their joy of life in a major LGBT city, unable to go out from spinal disease, unable to meet guys as they successfully enjoyed doing before, hosting parties & working hard all week earning the freedom for club excitement & time with their tribe of friends in a major metropolitan tourist destination, sporting new faces @ the beach/gay clubs all year. So cherish your health & freedom from genetic obstacles, and enjoy the same happiness Lance & Tom have in marriage, or on your way to it!
