Beth and Ed Blackman

Personal assistant, pharmacy manager

Beth: We have supported gay rights all along and we're very happy to see that [DOMA] is repealed. I just never understood how that would bother anyone else. Everybody should be entitled to live their own life and be happy and have the same rights as everyone else. People that commit to each other and get married live longer and happier lives. I think it's a good thing.

Ed: I think it shows the rest of the world that America is on the cutting edge of human rights.
