Gay Mayor's Marriage Sparks Controversy

GOP responds to Houston Mayor's marriage.
CNN -- Houston mayor Annise Parker married her longtime partner Kathy Hubbard on Thursday at a ceremony in California.

Parker's office said the sunset ceremony took place at a private home in Palm Springs among a small gathering of family and friends. Rev. Paul Fromberg, a family friend from San Francisco, presided over the ceremony.

Thursday marked Parker and Hubbard's 23rd anniversary together.

“This is a very happy day for us,” Parker said in a statement.

“We have had to wait a very long time to formalize our commitment to each other. Kathy has been by my side for more than two decades, helping to raise a family, nurture my political career and all of the other ups and down and life events that come with a committed relationship. She is the love of my life and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life married to her.”

Parker also tweeted: "I am privileged to now be the wife of the woman I have loved for more than 2 decades. I couldn't be happier. We said our vows today.-A"
