"Frank and Joe"
Frank and Joe were moved to tears as the officiant married them. When the California Supreme Court decided in June 2008 that it is constitutionally legal for same-sex couples to marry, Joe Alfano and Frank Capley, who have been in a relationship for 8 years, got married. Five months later, the passage of Prop 8 in California in November, now threatens the validity of their marriage.
