This is John Arthur.

He has a neurological disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS. ALS progressively takes away patients' ability to walk, talk, and breathe. John was diagnosed with this disease a little over two years ago.


However, they needed to travel to Maryland to get married.

They live in Ohio, where same-sex marriage is still banned. So they decided on marriage in Maryland, where only one partner needed to apply for the marriage license, and then travel there to have the ceremony.

The private jet that was needed cost $12,700.

As soon as they heard the Supreme Court decision, the couple reached out to friends and family to see how they could make this trip happen.
