» Th» Paris Ktow«. , Jon. 2«J. Gay marr/age may be happy, buf not legal DEAR ABBY: Two weeks ago I received a telephone call from my youngest son (29) who has been living in San Francisco for the last three yeara. He told me that a priest had just married him to his friend, Jerry — another guy. He said he has never been happier in his life, and he asked me to t«H everyone in the family about it. So far I haven't told anybody because i'm not sure how some of our relatives will take it. For my part, J love my son, and all I want is for him to be happy. Abby, ia marriage between two men legal in California? This is a new one for me. And I would like to know what kind of a "priest" would perform this kind of ceremony. PENNSYLVANIA MOM DEAR MOM: Congratulations. You haven't lost a son, you've gained another son. Same-sex marriages are not legal anywhere, but there are members of the clergy (Metropolitan Community Churches) who perform such ceremonies.
