Thanks for publishing Joel Cohen's description of his gay son's marriage in New York ("A traditional wedding," Jan. 2).

It was a lovely personal reflection by a father concerning his son's marriage to his long-time life partner. May they celebrate many simchas (joyful occasions) together for years to come, and may the year 2014 welcome more jurisdictions into the growing family of marriage equality.
