Same-Sex Marriage in the USA

I knew that one day same-sex marriage would be legal in the United States.  I just wasn't sure that I would ever live to see the day.

The original plan was to get a civil partnership in Ireland.  Then Ireland became the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage by popular vote.  So until today the new plan was to get legally married in Ireland. 

But now we actually have the option to get married in the USA. 

There will be some paperwork regardless of where a ceremony takes place.  There's for sure all kinds of paperwork to submit for a non-Irish EU citizen to marry a non-EU citizen in Dublin.  And I'm sure that there's more than enough paperwork for a U.S. citizen to marry a non-U.S. citizen in the USA.  But the awesome thing now is that we actually have a choice.
