I’m excited about being able to get married in Utah now. But, my family still doesn’t know I’m gay. My boyfriend wants the two of us to be with everyone else taking advantage of this moment in Utah history – but it wasn’t the law that was keeping me from marrying him. How do I communicate that I’m just not ready for this step without destroying his romantic marriage plans?
