A U.S. Marine Corps captain proposed to his partner in front of a Christmas tree at the White House Saturday in the first gay engagement to happen there.
Capt. Matthew Phelps asked his boyfriend Ben Schock to marry him in the grand foyer of the White House, on the six-month anniversary of their first date, which also was at the White House, reported ABC News.
Our first date was to the White House, so I wanted to propose to him there, Phelps told ABC News. When I got invited to the holiday tour six months to the day that we had been there on our first date it was way too much of a coincidence to pass up.
Although Dont Ask, Dont Tell was repealed so Phelps can openly acknowledge the relationship the Defense of Marriage Act is still in effect and the federal government will not officially acknowledge the marriage.
This means that Schock is not eligible for health insurance from the Corps, and when Phelps is deployed next year, his partner will not have access to their home on the Marine base.

Welcome to Ubama’s America.
...another stick in the eye from the marxist kenyan.
Time to get a new White House.
The military was America’s last noble institution. To the Left, it was essential to soil it, as they have done to everything else that was once decent and good in our once republic.
That is disgusting but somehow also appropriate for the White House we have today.
To think that the same house where Jefferson and Madison once lived is now host to such evil as this. Disgusting.
26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”
Good God, I hate with a purple passion what`s happened to this country...
Well... isn’t that special.
That’s just plain weird. And awkward. It’s awkweird.
> Time to get a new White House.
It should now be referred to as the Pink House. Truly disgusting. Abe & George must be olling over in their graves. They would probably wonder if it was worth it to look at us now.
