An Act That Enabled Acceptance – The New York Times

“Certainly, the longevity of our union also owes a great debt to honest communication and creative problem solving. The wedding photo is a good example. We put it up only after we grew tired of deliverymen and repairmen and housecleaners asking if she was my sister, or my nurse. Some have even called her a saint for staying with me. It makes us want to scream: ‘No! The disability didn’t come as a tragic surprise. It was there from day one, a strand in the very fabric of our lives together.'”
