Mary Cheney, Daughter of Former Vice President, Marries Longtime Partner

Openly gay daughter of former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney marries long-time partner; 43-year-old Mary Cheney and Heather Poe tied knots ‘legally’ 20 years after their first date. The marriage ceremony took place in Washington D.C., on June 22, 2012 and extremely happy Mary broke the news herself on Facebook. The couple is currently living in Virginia along with two children a son and daughter, Samuel David Cheney and Sarah Lynne Cheney.

71-year-old Richard Bruce "Dick" Cheney, the 46th Vice President of the United States, has always been strongly supporting same-sex marriage himself. His 43-year-old daughter Mary Cheney has also been one of top campaign aides and closest confidantes of her father.

Supporting their daughter’s marriage, both Dick Cheney and his wife Lynne said in a statement that Mary and Heather have enjoyed a committed relationship for nearly 2 decades. They added further they’re really delighted to learn that the couple eventually took advantage of the opportunity and had their relationship recognized.

The statement further said that the entire family gives due importance to Mary and Heather and also their children as they’re as loved as other members of the family. Both Dick and Lynne said they wish their daughter all the success and happiness in days to come.

Mary herself conveyed to her Facebook fans that she felt excited to announce that 20 years after enjoying their first date; she and Heather are finally married, legally; at least in D.C. The states that have already legalized same-sex marriage include Connecticut, New Hampshire, Iowa, New York, Massachusetts and Vermont.

Similarly, the District of Columbia also supports gay marriages.
