We’re looking for up to three writing interns! Two of those slots will be open to people in the middle of wedding planning, who will be getting married in mid/late 2015 or early 2016, and who are interested in writing about planning every other week over the course of the next year. The final slot will be open to anyone, though we are particularly interested in somewhat recently-married writers who are interested in writing about their lives at the moment. Get the details on what to include in your application here, and make sure to submit by Sunday, November 23rd!

The Last Time We Got Married

The second time was just as good as the first

by Kelsey Hopson-Shiller
Exactly one month after our September 6th wedding, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision that, in highly truncated summary, stated that they would not be interfering with state and circuit court decisions regarding marriage equality.
