The first couple to receive their marriage license from the City of Cambridge last night summed up the significance of the day in a simple, profound statement. The Boston Globe quotes Susan Shepherd:

"There's a kid somewhere that's watching this," she continued, fighting back tears. "It's going to change his whole life."
