When Navy Lt. Gary Ross and his partner were searching for a place to get married, they settled on a site in Vermont, in part because the state is in the Eastern time zone.

That way, the two men were able to recite their vows before family and friends at the first possible moment after the formal repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy. Just after midnight Tuesday, the partners of 11 years were married.

"It requires you to lie several times a day," Ross said of the old system. "Being in the military is extremely invasive. It becomes a web of excuses you make when you try to be as honest as possible but you can't be honest."

He's right. This IS why DADT was a terrible idea. We should go to pre-DADT policy and BAN ALL HOMOSEXUALS. That would make military life much easier.

“Being in the military is extremely invasive,”

It’s unfortunate that these girls had to be drafted.

If I were military, I think the only way I could handle it is, when such issues come up, only wish to discuss military matters only.

I can see a less effective military developing from the inability to being able to give an honest opinion.

I was wondering that too. I don't know the answer to that, but I would assume it could be done. If all the Republican candidates are saying they can do away with something so complex as Obamacare, I would think they could reverse this. Deserves some web surfing.

Thanks, Obama and shameful DOD “leaders” who went along with this social engineering.

Load up the military with Muslims. They will tip the walls on the homos.

Generaly, an aggressive posture gets you what you want (see blacks, homos, feminists, unionists). Straight Whitey Men have been neutered by the left and won't act up. That's the state we are in.

Oh good grief, not being in an appropriate situation to blurt everything on your mind isn’t “living a lie.” How the hell do they expect to be entrusted with the stuff for which every enlisted person has at least a secret clearance?

"We" told God to buzz off.

"We" decided that killing babies is a constitutional right.

"We" spent years propagandizing for diseased faggots on movies and television.

Now "we" are shocked to see a picture of three diseased-looking queers, one in a Naval Officer's uniform, pretending to have a wedding?

I'm not shocked.

Scandalized and disgusted, but not shocked. It was predictable.

This will end badly, and lots of "innocent" folks will die, because of this.

You have three decades on me but I feel the same. It’s happening faster each year. Things I never would have considered even 10 years ago are common today.

As someone else stated above..... there are societal consequences and the price we will pay eventually continues to grow.

Stand by for multiple orgasms by the mainstream media. I expect this to be the lead story on MSNBC, CNN, and even FNC. Front page of NYT?

This will be viewed as Obama’s greatest “accomplishment”.

What about the UCMJ? I don’t think that any branch of the military recognizes same sex marriage. Will gays get drummed out of the service if they have sex with each other in their bunks?

What I don't like is the headline: "Navy officer weds partner as gay ban ends"

That is purely discusting.

Instead of saluting I would give them the middle finger and get thrown out.
If they want to do it on their own that is their business. But now they are flaunting it.
