Love it!  And if you notice some of these people have been together for a very long time, longer than most married people in this country.  That says something...

'Bearded Love' -- Everyday couples is what marriage equality looks like

When the first same-sex weddings inWashington state commence on Sunday, among them will be Seattle-area residents Larry Duncan and Randell Shepherd.

Duncan, 56, and Shepherd, 48, caught the eye of photographers in the early morning hours yesterday when King County, Wash., officials began issuing the first marriage licenses to eager gay and lesbian couple.

Larry Duncan and Randell Shepherd.

Seventy-two couples down the line were Duncan, a retired psychiatric nurse, and Shepherd, a computer programmer, of North Bend, Wash. They wore matching duck hunter hats ("a fashion statement," Duncan joked) and matching shoulder-length white beards. They've been together 11 years, reported NBC News.

Titled "Bearded Love," the photo (above) of Duncan and Shepherd taking their oath before obtaining their marriage application went viral on sharing website Reddit, with the all too familiar caption of simply, marriage equality.

"We were at a party and we met eyes and fell in love," Duncan said.

"He came up and asked me out, and I said yes," Shepherd added.

“Enough people have told me, ‘God hates fags,’” Duncan said, who described himself as 'Old South.' “I want someone in a church to say, ‘God loves fags,’ to have that stamp on it.”

Look at all those sicko's!!!! It's so gross to see people in love, wanting to commit to their spouse forever. These people are ruining marriage for the rest of us!!!

Beautiful! I will never, ever understand any argument against allowing this to happen, and I've probably heard them all. The progress the LGBT community is making is fantastic, and hopefully one day we'll look back on such discrimination with the same disgust that we do with Jim Crow laws.
