Connie Nyman and Joann Usher of Arden Hills have been together for 20 years. They want to get married. And while they could drive a few hours to Iowa or Canada to do it legally, Usher says they have no plans to leave Minnesota.
"We want to have a wedding on our lake home here in Minnesota," Usher said. "It makes it possible for us -- we have a big family -- to have all of them there, our kids and our grandchildren. It would be fun to have everybody there."
That's why Nyman and Usher, along with more than 150 others, filled a downtown Minneapolis restaurant Monday night for a fundraiser hosted by the group Minnesotans United for All Families, one of the organizations fighting a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota.
