Boe Ramírez and Germán Roa, of Rockville, MD, have been partners for over 17 years. For them, marriage is a lifelong commitment to be there for each other, in good times and difficult times. When Boe lost his job for being gay, Germán wanted to demonstrate his unconditional love and support, and proposed on Christmas morning. Now that marriage equality is a reality in Maryland, they plan to get married in front of the families that love and support them. (Available in English or Spanish)
