Two Soulard Dudes Get Married

If you paid attention to local news at all today you likely saw that four same-sex couples got married on Wednesday just before office-closing time. This flies in the face of Missouri law that states marriage is between a man and a woman. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster filed some sort of legal thing.

Why is this post here? Because two Soulard residents who do a ton for the neighborhood, Richard Eaton and John Durnell, a couple of 39 years, were married. (UPDATE) Here's more on the couple from the Riverfront Times.

Rue de La Vie, video company located in Soulard and run by Islanders, was there to capture the moment.
