Arlington, VA
Gay & Herb, Arlington, VA - married 1955

Gay:
At some point it occurred to me, ďwe donít have to break up!Ē  You know?  We could get married!  And that would be such a relief!  Not to have to go through all that breaking up business again!  Which is so painful!

RF:
Is marriage still necessary?

Herb:
Frankly, the important thing is the relationship.  Iíve felt that for a long time.  Iíve had a lot of therapy, and I came to that conclusion.  The important thing is the relationship.  And it doesnít matter if the relationship is in terms of marriage or not marriage.
