President Obama Reportedly Sent A Congratulatory Letter To A Married Gay Couple

According to trend aggregator BuzzFeed editor Matt Stopera, President Obama allegedly sent a letter of congratulations to a gay couple, wishing them “the very best” as they embarked on their “journey together” and hoping their “bond (grew) stronger with each passing year.” The couple, who were married over the summer, were surprised by their letter of support.

BuzzFeed reports:

Matt Katz and his husband Aaron were married on July 24th at Borough Hall in Brooklyn. They have no idea why they received the card.
Matt says, “I’m not sure why the letter got sent to us. Aaron and I were married on July 24th at Borough Hall. However, we had our wedding ceremony on July 23rd at my dad’s house the day before. Maybe word got out that we were outlaws for a day?”

The letter reads:

Congratulations to you on this special occasion. Michelle and I hope it is blessed with love, laughter and happiness.

Your union marks the beginning of a lifelong partnership as you share the joys of your life together.

I wish you the very best as you embark on your journey together and I hope that your bond grows stronger with each passing year.

–Barack Obama
