Newlyweds, check your mailboxes!
President Obama sent a letter of congratulations to two men for their gender-segregated marriage. Matt Katz, 32, and Aaron Lafrenz, 36 of Brooklyn, New York, were among the first unigender couples to be married in that state.
ABC News reports “Obama has been opposed to gay marriage in the past, though he has recently said his views on the topic are ‘evolving.’”
The White House confirmed they sent the letter to Katz and Lafrenz. It “regularly sends congratulatory messages from the president to members of the public.”
The letter reads:
“Congratulations to you on this special occasion. Michelle and I hope it is blessed with love laughter, and happiness. Your union marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership as you share in the joys of your life together. I wish you the very best as you embark on your journey together and hope that your bond grows stronger with each passing year.”
Perhaps Obama will start working for Hallmark after the 2012 elections.
