  •  So I'm "illegitimate" b/c of "miscegenation"? (6+ / 0-)

    Technically legally true of me in the State of Virginia 45 years ago, so if you'd been alive then, I take it you would have had problem saying that, though to be fair perhaps not to my face.

    •  My parents were "illegally" married till 1967* (9+ / 0-)

      We couldn't stay in a hotel together in my father's home state.    We could be denied housing in Chicago in 1968.   If my father had been killed on active duty while we were domiciled in the wrong state, we would have inherited nothing.  This allowed him to decline deployment to certain states.  

      *Loving vs. Virginia, the #1 reason I have always supported marriage equality.
