The New York Times has a beautiful story along with many photos of Larry and Daniel Lennox-Choate, once stationed at Fort Benning in Columbus, Ga., who became the first male West Point graduates to marry when they recently tied the knot in New York.

It hasn’t even been two months since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the key part of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, but “the lay of the land is getting a bit complicated,” according to James Esseks, director of the ACLU’s National LGBT and AIDS Project.
Esseks was one of the attorneys involved in pressing the case of Edith Windsor, which led to a historic June 26 decision striking down the core provision of DOMA.
Assessing the deluge of litigation since then, “it’s hard to keep count,” Esseks said.
