“Even after 22 years together, we’re overwhelmed by how blessed we feel to celebrate this special day with our friends and family,” the couple said in a statement.
“With our three kids by our side, this couldn’t have been a more perfect day. Thank you to all our friends near and far for their love and support as we continue to fight to ensure all families can experience the joys of a lifetime commitment,” they said.
What a stunning couple! And what a beautiful family! Maloney, 47, becomes the second member of Congress to legally wed his same-sex partner while in office. Former Rep. Barney Frank, D-Massachusetts, became the first to do so in 2012.
