Living Your Vows: With Marian & Heatherlynn Gonzalez

Living Your Vows: With Marian & Heatherlynn Gonzalez

Make no mistake. I LOVE WEDDINGS! I love every little bit of wedding planning and details. This summer, for the first time, I’m officiating a wedding, and I’m pumped up! I love the couple very much and feel incredibly honored to be included on their big day. This has me thinking a lot about marriage and keeping the promises you make on your wedding day. So, I wanted to talk with another couple I know who are doing just that. Marian and Heatherlynn Gonzalez have made it through the ups and downs of any long-term marriage. They also figured out the best ways to support each other and stay together through Marian’s gender transition. There’s been a lot of discussion about transgender people lately. So much of that talk is heading in the wrong direction. For me, it’s important to re-focus the conversation around the most important element of humanity – LOVE.
