My brother is getting married soon, and he's been posting stuff about the wedding. Recently they picked up the marriage license.

All this has left me with the opposite of schadenfreude -- I'm feeling a bit of sadness at the good fortune that he has right now. I'm not jealous and certainly don't want him to be unhappy or to refrain from broadcasting his joy to the world (the world needs more joy). I'm just feeling a bit sad that I can't easily get a marriage license, and that even if I went through the efforts to get a marriage license, I'd have to deal with a large number of complications (some of which I have to deal with anyway) because some organizations would recognize my marriage and others wouldn't.

I keep reminding myself that I've been lucky enough to be with someone I love who loves and supports me, and that has been going on for 25 years. This is his third marriage. I wouldn't dream of trading places with him.
