Report: Melissa Etheridge to wed girlfriend
MSNBC ^ | October 1, 2008

Posted on 10/01/2008 4:22:21 PM PDT by Pinkbell

LOS ANGELES - Melissa Etheridge will wed girlfriend Tammy Lynn Michaels, the singer told celebrity television show “Extra” ahead of California’s vote next month on whether to strip same-sex couples of the right to marry.

“Yes, we have four children and we’re trying to find the right time,” Etheridge said when asked about marriage in an interview set to air on Wednesday night.

A spokeswoman for Etheridge was not immediately available.

Back in May, the California Supreme Court granted same-sex couples the right to marry, but residents opposing the decision have organized a proposition calling for an amendment to the state’s constitution that would ban gay marriage.

Voters will cast their ballots in November’s election on whether or not to support the proposition.

Etheridge, 47, whose rock hits include “Come to My Window” and “I’m the Only One,” has for years been one of the most high-profile celebrities to live openly as a lesbian.

She has two children with her former partner Julie Cypher, and in 2006, Etheridge and Michaels had their own twins.

Michaels, 33, is an actress who appeared in the lesbian-themed cable TV show “The L Word.”

Certainly much more newsworthy than Obama’s background and legislative record.

More and more, it seems likely that this election will mark the decisive victory of the anti-values of the 1960s over American traditions. The great likelihood now is that Barack Obama's inauguration will signal not only the end of national pride/patriotism but also the demise of marriage and family. What is saddest is that most of our People-reading, MTV-viewing populace will not even notice.

Lots of them. But I think many of the heterosexuals there feel a need to at least try it first before they commit.

None of them are looking at each other. Then again, they are only marginally linked to one another.

"Yes, we have four children and we’re trying to find the right time,” Etheridge said when asked about marriage in an interview set to air on Wednesday night."

How I long for simpler times when two lesbians would get married before moving in together and having kids.

Melissa Etheridge will wed girlfriend Tammy Lynn Michaels. . . .

Not really.

"Yes, we have four children. . . ."

No, you don't.

She has two children with her former partner Julie Cypher. . .

Impossible.

and in 2006, Etheridge and Michaels had their own twins.

Nope. Somebody else was involved, I guarantee it. Go on Maury, take a test, you'll see.
