We had been by each other in sickness and in health, when times where good and when times where tough, but we know now that we need marriage more than we had expected.

– Glenna DeJong, wife of lead plaintiff Marsha Caspar

“I think as a principle the law was that same sex couples could get marry and when the stay was put in effect – even if that is viewed as law changing –
it doesn’t retroactively void the marriages.”
