    Jim is so nice! And this comment section is so heartening too. Sometimes we get so caught up in our anger against this administration and what they’re doing that we are forgetting why we fight. This reminded me. Peace and love to everyone ✌️

    Way to go Jim and Todd, congratulations! I can understand what Jim was getting at when he talked about difference when you actually marry. My partner and I married last December. We were both pretty relaxed about it all, joined on the day by friends and family. All going well right up to the point when the celebrant said repeat after me.. I lost it. The fact that after 29 years I was actually allowed to say those words. It was a brilliant day 😉

    “We’re a legal thing, just like mom and dad were.” What a shameful disgraceful abhorrent LIE. Mom and dad made you! You and Todd cannot make a baby and your quasi-marriage Abhors the creator of the universe!!! #truthBeTold #bigBangDemandsFAITH #pervertsDeceived #GodIsNotMocked #repentOrBurn #LoveIsTruth #muchLove #hatersReplyWelcome

    For the highest paid star he seems a bit uncomfortable in the spotlight. Not putting him down, but he looked tense rather than relaxed. He can't really be Sheldon. That'd be painful.

    JIm , there is NOTHING DIVINE about your lifestyle.It's a perversion of God's intended use for a man and woman. You will NOT see Heaven nor God unless you repent and give your life to Jesus. Being gay will NOT send you to an Eternity without God. Not recieving Christ whom died for your sins, that is the ONLY reason you will not eneter heaven. John 3:16.

    Jim Parsons is such a polite and kind person, very real, down to earth. He gives me a good feeling, a sense of happiness and genuine warmth. I feel like anyone who is blessed enough to be in his life is certainly all the better for it. Congratulations to Jim and Todd! May you live and love long and may happiness reign supreme throughout your lives. 🤗

    The most common comment I have heard when someone gets married is they didn't think it would not make a difference but it did. I can agree with this after 40 years of marriage I keep feeling closer and closer to my husband. No kidding marriage is different.

    if you think that it is great, that your partner will stay with you for worse, then maybe you like being horrible and knowing she can-t leave you.
    On the other hand, maybe you have no idea what worse is. Marriage is terrible, if things are very troublesome and you complain, you dont get any help, people wont help ecause they fear that help might mean .that you might be more likely to leave
    I knew a marriage in which the man was very abused,totally put into coventrynot looked at or spoken to by his children and he was a very nice man and Icould not drum up any support for him because it was marriage.
    People might have who been able to use social pressure to better things but they would not because it was a marriage. It is absolutely disgraceful that marriage means you are so on your own with problems no one should marry until there are more guaratees of support included in the deal.

    Very interesting comments about there being no God, now man is made up of body, spirit and soul yet who amongst us has ever seen his own spirit or soul? No one. If an aeroplane has an inventor and a light bulb also its inventor then surely this whole wide wonderous universe has a creator only that He is Spirit and as long as you can't see your own spirit nor soul so can you not see God with your eyes. Science, economics, mathematics etc can never come up with formulas to prove God's existence, it's only a matter of time. Hope it wouldn't be too late.
