When Jessica Garner went to try on wedding dresses, she knew two things: One, that wedding dresses can be ridiculously expensive; and two, that she had been waiting for more than 16 years for her very own wedding dress.

So back before they did away with “don’t ask, don’t tell” in the military, said Garner, “my spouse and I had a civil service (union) because it was not legal here in Texas. So, we had to go far away — to Iowa — in order to get married legally and none of our friends and family were there.”
