Starting today, The Forum will accept for publication the announcements of gay marriages, engagements and anniversaries if the marriage takes place in a state or country where it’s legally recognized.
Right now, that means anyone engaged to be married or who was legally married in Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, the District of Columbia and several foreign countries could have their announcement published in The Forum. The scope of this policy will change as states and countries change their marriage laws.
This policy change standardizes our approach to announcements for engagements, marriages and anniversaries. Simply put, we will recognize legal marriages, wherever they occur. We will not publish announcements for non-legally recognized marriages, such as civil unions and commitment ceremonies.
