Hallmark Gets Down with Same-Sex Marriage

Now same-sex couples can receive incredibly earnest cards at their weddings too.
That's right, most same-sex couples can't get hitched in their home state, but at least now their families can buy them a card from Hallmark when they head to San Francisco or Massachusetts to tie the knot. Amanda at Think Progress has the story:
Although most states still refuse to recognize gay marriage, Hallmark has begun rolling out cards recognizing the unions between same-sex couples. They feature "two tuxedos, overlapping hearts or intertwined flowers, with best wishes inside. 'Two hearts. One promise,' one says." Barbara Miller, a spokeswoman for the Greeting Card Association, said that the number of companies providing same-sex cards is expanding: "The fact that you have someone like Hallmark going into that niche shows it's growing and signals a trend."
Kudos to Hallmark for doing the right thing the only way they know how: with lots of little hearts and earnest sappiness.
