Did you notice your marriage get a little weaker on March 24? Think back. Didn’t you realize, suddenly, that your significant other isn’t looking so good these days? That maybe your love had suddenly faded a little? That was, it seems, a disturbance in the force:
The couple walked into a Norfolk, Virginia courthouse on a spring day, exchanged a few words, and within 10 minutes, were seemingly husband and wife.
It was an unremarkable ceremony — except that several weeks later, officials realized the shapely bride might not have been a woman.
Now authorities in Virginia, where same-sex marriages are illegal, are weighing whether to file misdemeanor charges against the couple, Antonio E. Blount, 31, and Justin L. McCain, 18. An announcement is expected this week.
The institution of marriage is under assault! The very fabric of society is crumbling! O noes!
