Seven years of marriage equality in Arkansas and, despite what the heel-draggers and naysayers said, the world has not come to an end.

The notice prompted me to check in on the first coupleKristin Seaton and Jennifer Rambo — to receive a marriage license in Arkansas after Judge Chris Piazza’s ground-breaking ruling (which took further proceedings in state and federal court to become enshrined in law in 2017). More happiness.
