After 20 years together, my partner and I (with our 10-month-old daughter in tow) got hitched in Des Moines, Iowa by a fearless judge facing the possibility of losing his seat on the bench in the next retention vote. Lest you think I’m an activist or a romantic, we got married so my partner could qualify for the firm’s health insurance so she could stay home with our bouncing baby girl. My partner has always been warmly welcomed at firm events, and my now five-year-old daughter is treated the same as every other bored kid running around the office on a Sunday afternoon stamping REDACTED on the walls. My life, my partner, and my daughter are (usually) easily digested and integrated into my workplace.
