After the CA Supreme Court made same-sex marriages legal, the words “bride” and “groom” disappeared from marriage licenses and related legal forms.
I have to admit, this was something I didn’t even think about! Personally, I was too busy celebrating the fact that now more people had the right to get married, like the fashionable couple Simon Doonan and Jonathan Adler (congrats to them, by the way!).
What do you think? Is having gender-neutral terms a huge step toward equality for couples, same sex and not? Do you wish we would go back to the traditional terms “bride” and “groom”, like recently married couple Rachel Bird and Gideon Codding do? Or do you not care if Party A marries Party B?
