U.S. Marine Captain Matthew Phelps Makes Historic Proposal To Boyfriend In The White House!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayLove LineWedding WaltzCuteness!LGBT

Tears are dripping from our eyeballz because a gay proposal between an active Marine Captain IN the White House is a seminal moment in our nation's history!!

Over the weekend, U.S. Marine Corps Captain Matthew Phelps surprised boyfriend Ben Schock during a holiday tour of the White House when he bent down on one knee and asked Ben for his hand in marriage (above)!

And, in front of numerous snapping cameras, Ben said YES!

This is the FIRST EVER gay marriage proposal to take place within the walls of The White House!

BUT unfortunately, because of the Defense of Marriage Act, the Department of Defense cannot legally recognize their union.

Matthew recently stated:

"As a same-sex military spouse, Ben won't be entitled to the same rights and privileges as opposite-sex married spouses. We won't be allowed base housing, he won't be entitled to health care coverage, and he won't officially be allowed to accompany me if I am stationed overseas, which is what I am expecting after I graduate from Marine Corps University in May."

We only hope that come summer 2013 this ridiculous, intolerant prohibition is eliminated.

It's time people stop wasting energy on trying to deny rights to same-sex couples so that we can focus on more pressing matters…

Like a peaceful, sustainable, prospering future world, for starters!

Check out another picture from Matthew's surprise proposal (below)!

    This is so fucking gay. I'm for gay rights, but here they are again trying to force and shove gay down your throat. It's inappropriate and overbearing that they did that in the white house..

    You know, I 100% agree with full civil rights for all people (including of course Gay people) but this turns my stomach. Yuck. Way too in your face melodramatic. You've made you're point but to do it in front of a crowd of cameras at the White House is just sick. Attention seeking morons .

    Re: pollopicuRe: Pansy HunterRe: sherry – But when a man proposes to a woman on the jumbo-tron at an arena full of people - everybody says, 'aw that sweet'. It is normal for a man and woman to hold hands, but when a gay couple does it they are 'shoving it down our throats'. Quite the double standard.

    rosebud99 couldn't agree more! Its romantic and sweet that he did it in front of so many people. Its not in your face its just a huge romantic gesture he did to show "hey everyone I want to marry this man" congrats to the happy couple. Cute as can be.

    George Washington just rolled over in his grave! *LOL*
    I am not big on Publicity Stunts, whether gay or straight.

    Re: rosebud99 – Nope, I can't stand that either. Proposals like that, I give the marriage less than 5 years to survive.

    Re: Pansy Hunter
    Sounds like someone is either jealous or bitter they're not getting any. The only "deviant" on here is you with your dirty mind. Why are you so concerned what other people do in the bedroom?

    It does not mean anything, just a waste of time. But it did get them on perez hilton. No other sites, just this one. Wonder why?

    Re: rosebud99 – We're talking about the White House. Not anywhere else. They could've done it at Great Adventure for all I care.

    Re: pollopicu
    The White House is the perfect symbolic place for this. I see this is a great image of how society is changing for the better. Love is love irrelevant of sexuality. To say a display of gay love is innappropriate, is offensive and ignorant. Your no better than anyone else just because your attracted to the opposite sex. Your clearly not for gay rights, as your not for equality.

    People who focus so much hate on other people's love life need lives of their own. Who cares what 2 consenting adult do in the bedroom? Who cares that they are happy and in love? Big deal, it's not your life.

    Re: pollopicu – shove gay down your throat?
    did they froce you to marry gender? where did the force part came from, moron?

  18. Jimbograham says – reply to this


    So cute.

    Re: rosebud99 – why does it turn your stomach? It's normal to them. Like it is me and my family. We need more public gay affection. It needs to be out in open so people don't feel physically sick when two men kiss. I'm not talking all out sexual displays but just what straight couples do in public. Shame on you people who are blinded by your own ignorance. When two people love each other anything goes no matter what! Grow up and look at yourselves. Everyone is on a grey sliding scale of sexuality. Doth protesting too much? Afraid you might like it? Love to all.

    Fuck the haters, power to the motherfucking people. All the homophobic and racist assholes can go live on the sun.
