Freedom to Marry, a national pro-gay right group, has opened a political action committee in Maryland, and will start raising money here. "It is the home stretch and we want to be able to do all we can do in Maryland. We believe there is a real path to victory," said Evan Wolfson, the founder and president of FTM. So far the organization has put about $3 million into the other three states with same-sex marriage questions on the ballot, but has not put cash here. The group's early decision to stay out of fund raising for Maryland was seen by some as a vote of no-confidence in the state.

Married patients suffering from advanced lung cancer are likely to live longer after treatment than those who aren't hitched, according to research released today. The study by researchers at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center in Baltimore found that 33 percent of married patients with the most common type of stage III lung cancer were still alive three years after treatment. Only 10 percent of single patients were alive three years after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.

I am getting married in 100 days. I've had a hard time feeling like this whole wedding thing is real. It has at times seemed too adult, too overwhelming, too far away to actually be a thing that is going to happen. My overall disbelief has been peppered with moments that yank me out of the cloud and whip my head around. I was at a work meeting, making conversation with someone I had just met, and heard my voice saying, “I'm getting married on October 6.” I'd said that before, but not to someone who didn't already know I was engaged.

I have to vehemently differ with letter writer Theresa M. Becker who was greatly offended that the Roman Catholic Church ordained three former Episcopalian priests ("Ordaining married Episcopal priests as Catholics is a sacrilege," June 15). Closed-minded opinions like that keep the Roman Catholic church firmly ensconced in the Dark Ages. The Roman Catholic church is in desperate need of priests; this move is not unprecedented. If Ms. Becker did her homework, she would find that married ministers and priests from other denominations have been ordained and are recognized by the Vatican as being legitimate priests.

As a baptized Roman Catholic who attended a Catholic school for eight years, I was absolutely appalled to read that three Episcopal priests, two of whom are married with children, were being ordained as Catholic priests ("Three Episcopal priests to be ordained Catholic," June 8). Any young Catholic man in the seminary studying to be ordained is expected to remain celibate; why in heaven's name is the Church allowing these ordinations to take place? Allowing these ordinations to occur is a direct contradiction to the Church teaching that Catholic priests must not marry.

For the better part of a decade, Jill Crowther-Peters has portrayed the widowed seamstress who stitched the Star-Spangled Banner, but on Thursday she had the chance to really feel what it was like to be her. Crowther-Peters, dressed as 19th-century flag maker Mary Pickersgill, stopped to savor the moment as she helped darn three threads from the original banner into a 30-foot American flag that flew over Ground Zero in New York after the Sept....

Marriage is a choice that two people make, and the legal system shouldn't be a third party to the decision. Making same-sex marriage illegal is akin to criminalizing a black person's marriage to a white person or an American's right to marry a Mexican. The law has no business in the personal choice of who to marry. An American should have the right to marry the person of their choice. I am disgusted by the self-righteous, pious church-going Americans who want to "protect the sanctity of marriage" by forbidding gay people the right to marry.

For brides-to-be who want to tap into what's au courant this spring, remember: More is more when it comes to the veil; choose shoes you'll want to wear again; and find a sassy second dress for the reception. Influenced by last year's wedding of Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton, and Middleton's classic style, the year's most popular wedding trends marry tradition with a big pop of personality. Here are some local options for aisle style. The second dress While "second dress" used to mean the one a bride might wear to her second wedding, modern brides are loving the idea of changing into a more dance-friendly dress for the reception.
