Traditional wedding and marriage equality [Letter]

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.

Jerry Seidler, Baltimore
