Signed and Sealed

Finally last Friday, Toño and I executed the right Swiss voters gave us on June 5, 2005. At 14:40 pm, while we were sitting in comfortable red chairs, Mrs. Solombrino asked us The Questions and handed us the pen to make the most important signatures in our lives.



Toño is now my registered partner and I am his registered partner. Our marital status is called "in registered partnership". Despite this complex designation, it is one of the best things that ever happened to me. It is simply great to be deliriously loved up. And it is even greater to be loved by Toño.

We will not only never forget this day, because we received the pen we used as a gift, but also, because we got a congratulation card by the second best mayor in the world.

And I forgot to ask, who is the best mayor in the world? Boris Johnson? Bertrand Delanoë? Rudy Giuliani?

Congratulations. In registered partnership is a much nicer term than we have here - in nz it is a "civil union".

Hope you celebrated in style. Huggles & care, Michelle

Hey...congratulations :o)

Here in the UK it is a 'civil partnership', again not as nice a phrase as yours is :o)

Congrats!!! I bet it feels wonderful and all the more wonderful that you have this choice! Are you aware of the California bill up for vote (prop 8)? It's worded so you will get confused and force them to vote out free rights by voter mistake...
