‘You Are the Same’


Jean Salzer, 49, and Linda Kapheim, 52, said they were surprised how quickly Crabb acted and hadn't been prepared for Friday's ruling. Two of their friends married Friday night while they were at a Tony Bennett concert in Milwaukee.

"Then we looked at each other and said, 'Let's do this,'" Salzer said.

They married Saturday morning. Though they have been together for 14 years, Kapheim said, "It just makes it so real for family."

"I think there's that legitimacy piece," Salzer agreed. "You are the same as everyone else. Someone with power says we are married."


One thought on “‘You Are the Same’

  1. I wish Ms Salzer and Ms Kapheim a long and happy life together. And all the other same-sex couples who marry, too. Having an acknowledged partner is so important to all of us and marriage is how society has done the acknowledging. This story is a nice way to start the day.
