We are so excited to share our love and commitment to each other with all of you! So much of who we are as individuals, and who we are as a couple, are because of our family and friends. Some of you have known us from birth, others are new friends we have found along the way. Many of you have been with us through difficult times, others during life's accomplishments. You have helped shape the young adults we are today, and we can think of no one better to be by our sides on our big day.
As many of you already know, Wyatt and I will not be getting married. We aren't even allowed to get married minus the official documentation. We can't be Mr. and Mrs., and we will NOT be husband and wife. We need to make that very clear to all of our family and friends. Why? Because Wyatt would lose all of his public benefits. We would lose Social Security, which means he would lose Medicare, which means we would have to pay for all medical bills out of pocket. That means any time Wyatt lands in the hospital, which has happened more than a handful of times since we have been together, we would end up drowning in medical bills. There are more details as to how he curretly qualifies for Social Security that muddy the situation, but we won't bore you with the details. Either way, this is NOT a wedding, and it is important for all of our family and friends to know and understand this. If for any reason Social Security questioned our intentions, they could investigate our lives and question our family and friends. If anyone reported that we were husband and wife we could lose everything. Sucks, but we are trying to accept reality.
So it's not a wedding, but we still love each other and are commited to each other just the same as any married couple! Wyatt and I love each other more than anything; we want to start a family, and be with each other for the rest of our lives, and we want to celebrate this with you. All we ask is that you love and support us just the same.
