扶持無所不在 Support is Everywhere

 熟年同志 The other side of the rainbow 

我們要的夢從來不大,
不求地老天荒、海枯石爛,但求歲月平凡、靜好。

我是阿全,最喜歡在公園下棋喝茶,悠閒度過午後時光。我永遠記得父親當年對我說:「不討個老婆,將來豈不孤苦零丁,無人照顧?」如今我也六十出頭了,幸好有在一起三十幾年的另一伴,如今就像我的家人一般。不論未來如何,都希望能與他締結為家屬,彼此扶持,同時受到法律保障。

我是阿忠,今年五十好幾。很早就跟另一半共同生活,只有對方懂得我要的夢從來不大,不求地老天荒、海枯石爛,但願歲月平凡靜好。看過身邊同志無法合法繼承遺產的例子,兩人共同辛苦的成果被不相干的人硬生生奪去。我們希望身後能夠留給心愛的人應得的東西,關係不再是法律上的外人,所以我們都預立了遺囑,避免遺憾。

 

“Support comes from everywhere”
Some people want to love until the end of time, but I prefer the simple moments with you right now.

My name is George. There is nothing I enjoy more than a game of chess in the park in a sunny afternoon. As I sip on a cup of tea, I always think of my father and how he used to nag: “If you don’t find yourself a wife, you’ll end up alone with no one to take care of you.” Now I’m in my sixties, older than my father was when he uttered those words. I’ve been lucky to have Sam in my life for the past thirty years. He is my husband, even if the law disagrees. I know we will continue to live our lives as two people who love and support each other no matter what. But wouldn’t it be nice for our society to recognize this love.

I’m Sam, turning 58 this year. I’ve been with George for more than half of my life. I can’t imagine life with anyone else, because he is the only one who gets me. Some people want to love until the end of time, but I prefer the simple and peaceful moments with him right now. I see so many of our friends losing the lives they built with their partners, all because the law doesn’t recognize them. I don’t want that to happen to us, so we both wrote wills to let the world know who we are to each other: partners, spouses, a family.
