White Center newlyweds: Congratulations, Gill and Alex!
We know at least one White Center couple has been part of the history-making events in our state these past few days since same-sex marriage became legal: Gill and Alex. If it’s happening in White Center, they’re usually part of it – community meetings, neighborhood cleanups, graffiti patrols, block watch, you name it. They’ve been together going on two decades, and now they are married. Here’s how Gill tells it:
We met in 1995, purchased our house in White Center in 1998 and have lived here ever since. We “discovered” White Center and many of our neighbors while walking Mac (mixed beagle/basset) over the early years.
Of course, we wanted to get married as soon as Washington would permit it. Therefore, we braved the very friendly and enthusiastic crowds Thursday morning to get our marriage license. Yesterday we married in a civil ceremony presided over by King County Judge Judith Ramseyer. She and her friends helping her couldn’t have been happier to see us married. It was a truly remarkable event to be remembered and cherished for the rest of our lives.
Since 12:01 am Thursday, King County has issued 710 marriage licenses.
