Storyline

LIMITED PARTNERSHIP is the love story between Filipino-American Richard Adams and Australian Tony Sullivan, who, in 1975, became one of the first same-sex couples in the world to be legally married. After applying for a green card for Tony based on their marriage, the couple received a denial letter from the Immigration and Naturalization Service stating, 'You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots.' Outraged at this letter, and to prevent Tony's impending deportation, the couple sued the U.S. government, filing the first federal lawsuit seeking equal treatment for a same-sex marriage in U.S. history. This tenacious story of love, marriage and immigration equality is as precedent setting as it is little known... until now. Written by Anonymous

Where we came from
15 May 2015 | by fireman452-1See all my reviews

My husband and I are THE plaintiffs for the Florida case that brought Marriage Equality to our state, along with our close friends from Chipley Florida the four of us and our attorneys from Jacksonville made this happen - this video tells us how far we have come and YANKS at your heart in a BIG way.

We started down this path in February of 2014 and managed to get to the end of it in early 2015. When we look back on how long it took us we thought it was forever, but these guys worked at it for over 40 years. Such a waste of time, I am sure they are happy that they have lived to see the day their ground work paid off, but WOW, 40 years. My husband and i have been together for 27 years. We had not even met when they started down this road.
