Hallmark Introduces Gay Marriage Cards

Hallmark just announced that it will be adding three gay marriage cards to its assortment. It will be featuring two tuxedos, overlapping hearts, or intertwined flowers with either "Best wishes" or "Two hearts. One promise" written inside in order to keep the greeting neutral and appropriate for commitment ceremonies as well. Since California joined Massachusetts in legalizing gay marriage, Hallmark had to fulfill the consumer demand. Hallmark spokeswoman Sarah Gronberg Kolell said Hallmark wants to "be as relevant as possible to as many people as we can," although its stores can choose whether or not they want to add these latest offerings.

It seems only right that gay-marriage cards exist in the market place, but with so many people against this new law, it's not surprising that not everyone will be as excited as I am. What are your thoughts? Do you think selling gay marriage is a genius idea or do you not feel comfortable with these cards on the shelf at your local Hallmark store?

Why only 3? I'm glad they are getting with the program and making gay marriage cards, but if those were my only options I would honestly make my own card.

This is great as my gay best friend is getting a commitment ceremony! Aren't there lesbian cards though, too?

I'd make my own card if a gay friend was getting married anyway. ;p I recently had a pair of lesbian friends get married and I couldn't find a suitable card... nearly drew hair over the groom on one of the hallmark cards. ;p

Only three? And I agree with what was said earlier, where are the ones for lesbian marriages?

i hate the whole idea of pre-printed cards. obviously most people feel differently, but if you care enough to really send the very best, it should be written by YOU especially for the recipient, not mass produced by hallmark and signed by you after a run to target.
