In 2013 as a lesbian couple we could not just go to any courthouse to get married, not even our own local courthouse here in Georgia. So we decided to take a cross-county, cross-continent journey of love and commitment to all of the marriage equality states we could legally get married in! In April 2013 we married in 8 states: New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, Maryland, Washington DC and Massachusetts. In April 2014 we married in 3 more states: New Jersey, Iowa, and Illinois. In April 2015 we added Rhode Island, Virginia and West Virginia.
The inspiration for the #idomarathon is love and commitment and EQUALITY...MARRIAGE EQUALITY!! What a better way to show our love and commitment to each other than to get married, and married and married!! We won't be done until we get married in all 50 states.
Everyone loves the concept of the #idomarathon, but it is a difficult task to partake in with us and 7 children. We mostly funded that trip out of pocket, which is difficult with a family our size. So we need help to finish...
Thanks for helping with the journey!
