One of the finest moments in my life, and one of the greatest compliments anyone has ever paid me, was the day he felt safe to come out to me. He’s in his mid-30s now, but he’ll always be my little brother. And man, I love that kid. He’s brilliant, he’s funny, and he’s kind. And he just married a phenomenal man.

I was always predisposed to like his husband because, y’know, he’s my brother’s partner and therefore has automatic status in my heart. The wonderful bonus is that I really like him. He’s brilliant, he’s funny, and he’s kind. He’s a cool dude to hang out with. He also stood by my brother like a rock when my brother had a life-threatening cancer that cost him his left eye.

    I think marriage is a personal choice between two people who love each other to officially recognise that love, end of… Sadly some people feel obliged to apply all sorts of criterion and over complicate things, but at the end of the day they are not likely to change and it is their problem to sort out… So congratulations in advance to the two of you, not everyone finds their one true love but you both clearly have! x

      Sorry to hear that – its always difficult with family, but one thing I’ve learned is that EVERYONE’S families are slightly mad and sometimes they can come around :-)
