Gina Patterson-Martin, attorney for New York State Supreme Court, and Pauline Patterson-Martin, music publisher
Do you have a romantic engagement story?
Pauline: It was important for us to have marriage as opposed to domestic partnership or one of those other options. So when New York State passed the law, I was like “You want to do it? Let’s get married!” So no rose petals up the stairs, none of those stories. It was like, “Oh my God, we can do this!”
And you’re expecting?
I am three and a half months pregnant. So when the law passed, I was already pregnant. Timing could not be any better.
