    Hello everyone,
    There is not much of a lgbt community by where my wife and I live. We have to travel about 2 hours to get to Chicago. Hoping to talk and meet some great people on here since most of our friends are straight. So hello from Illinois!

    Hi both! :) Welcome to AE!

    So how long have you been together/married?
    (It always puts a smile on my face when I hear about anyone from the lgbt community being married considering it's still such a recent thing many places, and still such a far way to go yet in others).

    Thank you, we have been married for 1 1/2 years. It's been legal in Illinois for 2 years. I am so happy that it's legal everywhere in the US now but the rest of the world definitely still have some catching up to do.

    Welcome to AE. My wife and I are in New England. But Chicago is a pretty cool town. I don't know much about Northwest IL though, have only driven through it.
