Lucinda BINGHAM and Aaron GOLDBERG -- Match
By Judith Tenenbaum, Saturday, October 1, 2005, Page M4
Lucinda BINGHAM and Aaron GOLDBERG thought it would be great while it lasted. But as it turned out, not even the Atlantic Ocean could douse their sparks.
She was from the University of Sheffield and he from the University of British Columbia when they met in September, 1998, as exchange students at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In different disciplines, they seemed unlikely to reconnect. But that November, when Ms. BINGHAM was wending through the beachfront student housing with its open keg parties, she drifted into Mr. GOLDBERG's home.
"He was celebrating his birthday, didn't know why I was there, but was happy I turned up," she recalls. The theme, "An Evening at the Lab," had the boisterous gathering imbibing test-tube shooters. Caught up in the festivities, Mr. GOLDBERG affectionately pinched Ms. BINGHAM's cheek. After an instinctive retaliatory slap, she apologetically offered her number when he asked for it.
They were soon an item, but romance was overshadowed by the reality of each returning home. "We made it clear that we would enjoy the time we had in California and not put pressure on each other," Ms. BINGHAM says.
Their year in the sun ended in June, 1999. As a last hurrah, they motored up the coast to Vancouver, across Canada to Toronto and down to Washington, where the Friends bid adieu.
The phone lines burned in the interval before each returned to fourth-year university, but it was Mr. GOLDBERG who blinked first. "I said, 'We'll be together until we are apart, until we decide we'd rather be with someone else, or it's too heart-wrenching to be together [but apart],' " he says. "But Friends calling every day... it wasn't the right category."
The next couple of years included reciprocal visits, and both became focused on pursuing their master's degrees. When Ms. BINGHAM completed her year of film Theory at the University of Nottingham, she joined Mr. GOLDBERG in Manhattan, where he was taking media studies at N.Y.U. By August, 2001, they had their own apartment in Brooklyn, but she had returned to England to obtain a U.S. working visa.
Suddenly, on 9/11, as Mr. GOLDBERG watched the maelstrom from his rooftop, the couple rethought their priorities. "There was no hesitation in my mind. I was going to New York on the next plane," Ms. BINGHAM says.
Clearly, Mr. GOLDBERG was overwhelmed by her courage and commitment. "Lucinda made a big sacrifice coming, and not only the timing, but because North America is my territory," he says.
By March 2003, they had relocated to Toronto, where he began work for Brunico Communications, later moving to the ad agency Axmith McIntyre Wicht. Ms. BINGHAM, waiting for her permanent residency, volunteered at the Paper Things boutique in support of the National Ballet and for various film festivals. "I guess when you are not able to work, you indulge yourself in the things you enjoy," she says with a laugh.
Mr. GOLDBERG's quest for a unique proposal spot drew him to the Ice Hotel near Quebec City. Not to everyone's taste or temperature, it is rebuilt annually from 5,000 tons of ice, with 16-foot ceilings, decor and furniture all fashioned from ice.
"It was freezing," Mr. GOLDBERG admits, but "dogsledding and dinner in the lodge were nicer than expected." On January 17, 2004, as they snuggled in sleeping bags on a mattress of deer pelts, Mr. GOLDBERG proffered his own piece of ice.
The proposal gave more than a passing nod to family tradition: The ring had been his mother's, passed to her from his grandmother, and it was presented in an original box from the jewellery store his grandfather once owned.
Invitations to their London wedding specified cocktail attire and dancing shoes. "Lucinda is a citizen of the world. Not only did her bridesmaids live in different cities -- they lived in different time zones," Mr. GOLDBERG says.
"It was complicated," Ms. BINGHAM says, "so I told them to wear a little black Sex and the City dress, because everyone has a little black favourite."
A convert to Judaism, she supplied the 109 attendees with a program explaining the modified Jewish ceremony. Members of the wedding party held the chuppah, designed by Mr. GOLDBERG's aunt, Hong Kong artist Lori ORMUT- DURBIN. The couple were united by Rabbi Laura JANNER- KLAUSNER and co-officiant Rabbi Matthew DURBIN, Mr. GOLDBERG's cousin.
The reception patisserie had a Seventh Avenue flavour thanks to friend and groomsman Barry GOLDMAN, who toted the wedding cake and four frozen cheesecakes from the Carnegie Deli in his luggage.
Mrs. GOLDBERG, 28, a senior publicist at Allied Advertising, works on their DreamWorks account, and Mr. GOLDBERG, 27, inspired by family success, has begun his own entrepreneurial pursuits. "We reached the pivotal moment and then we figured out how we'd be able to make it possible," he says. "Our relationship was more maintaining what we had, instead of building what wasn't there yet."

Gay marriage is legalized
Ontario appeal court rewrites law, says couples must be given licences
Activists are ecstatic, Ottawa faces tight deadline to decide on appeal
KLEIN rejects ruling, says he'll invoke notwithstanding clause in Alberta
By Kirk MAKIN Justice Reporter; With reports from Mark HUME in Kelowna, and Canadian Press Wednesday, June 11, 2003 - Page A1
The exclusion of gays from the institution of marriage is illogical, offensive and unjustifiable, the Ontario Court of Appeal said yesterday in a historic judgment that makes same-sex marriages legal for the first time in Canada.
The ruling took effect immediately in Ontario -- two gay men were married yesterday in a Toronto court -- increasing the pressure on the federal government to consider legislation on same-sex unions or go to the Supreme Court. A decision on the latter option must be made by June 30.
Alberta Premier Ralph KLEIN boosted the stakes further, saying his province is not about to recognize same-sex marriages as legal, and will invoke the notwithstanding clause of the Constitution to override any court ruling recognizing a right to such marriages.
"If there is any move to sanctify and legalize same-sex marriages, we will use the notwithstanding clause, period, end of story," Mr. KLEIN said at the Western Premiers Conference in Kelowna, B.C.
The Ontario court methodically dismantled every argument made before it in support of heterosexual-only marriages. It refused even to permit a grace period for Ontario to bring its laws into conformity with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Courts in British Columbia and Quebec have also struck down marriage laws, but gave the governments time to rewrite their legislation.
The Ontario judges said denying same-sex marriage is tantamount to declaring homosexuals a lesser order of being, helping to perpetuate an impression that gays and lesbians are incapable of forming loving relationships.
"A purpose that demeans the dignity of same-sex couples is contrary to the values of a free and democratic society and cannot be pressing and substantial," said Chief Justice Roy McMURTRY, Mr. Justice James MacPHERSON and Madam Justice Eileen GILLESE.
"Same-sex couples are capable of forming long, lasting, loving and intimate relationships. A law that prohibits same-sex couples from marrying does not accord with the needs, capacities and circumstances of same-sex couples."
The judges ordered Toronto's city clerk and the provincial registrar-general to issue and accept marriage licences for two couples married under the Christian tradition of publication of banns in 2001 -- Joe VARNELL and Kevin BOURASSA; and Elaine and Anne VAUTOUR -- making them the first gay marriages in the country.
Henceforth, the court ordered the definition of marriage in Ontario to be "the voluntary union for life of two persons to the exclusion of all others."
The ruling was the culmination of decades of strategic prodding by gay couples, associations and legal activists. All were ecstatic yesterday over the strength of the Ontario ruling.
"This is why people come to Canada," said Michael LESHNER, who married his partner, Michael STARK, within hours of the ruling. "They marvel at our values. We have sent an unmistakable message that love can conquer all."
"It's a momentous day," said Kyle RAE, a gay Toronto city councillor. "It is a great day for equality in Canada."
A lawyer for the couples, Martha McCARTHY, predicted many more marriages in the days ahead, while the federal government ponders a possible appeal. "The more marriages we get, the more inevitable this is," she said in an interview. "The time to be right is ripe, as Martin Luther KING would say."
Courts in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec have now overturned marriage laws. But the rulings in British Columbia and Quebec did not take effect immediately because they allowed governments until mid-2004 to redraft the laws.
A final clash is now possible before a Supreme Court of Canada bench that has steadily established a reputation for defending gay rights. The federal government has only until June 30 to decide whether to appeal the British Columbia ruling. The Liberal government is also expecting a report this week from a parliamentary committee examining same-sex marriage.
Prime Minister Jean CHRÉTIEN said yesterday Justice Minister Martin CAUCHON is looking at the judgment along with the other rulings, and said it is too early to know whether it will be appealed.
Mr. CAUCHON said Ottawa recognizes it must move quickly toward a "national solution" to the same-sex debate.
"We see the direction that the courts are taking now," Mr. CAUCHON said after a cabinet meeting. "I'm asking for a little bit of time to look at the decision and to come back with a statement."
The Ontario Court of Appeal was not in a mood for patience, and it was not willing to run the risk that provincial legislators would devise wording to circumvent their ruling.
"A temporary suspension allows a state of affairs that has been found to violate standards embodied in the Charter to persist for a time despite the violation," the court said.
It also pointed out that were it simply to render the entire law invalid, gay people would be vulnerable to the wrath of heterosexuals who found themselves temporarily denied the benefits of marriage.
The decision rested on the constitutional right to equality and emphasized the "dignity" of individuals.
Launched by eight same-sex couples, the litigation had targeted a common-law definition of marriage as a union between "one man and one woman." The couples won their challenge in Ontario's Divisional Court, but it, too, suspended its ruling for two years.
Yesterday, the Court of Appeal specifically rejected arguments that procreation is an integral pillar of marriage.
"Same-sex couples can choose to have children through adoption, surrogacy and donor insemination," the judges reasoned. "Importantly, procreation and child-rearing are not the only purposes of marriage, or the only reason why couples choose to marry. The opposite-sex requirement in marriage is not rationally connected to the encouragement of procreation and child-rearing."
They said government lawyers offered mere speculation instead of proof to show why the exclusion of same-sex marriages was a valid social objective -- and that the definition of marriage was far from a minimal infringement.
What Canadian think about gay issues
The Ontario Court of Appeal ruled yesterday that the right to marry should be extended to same-sex couples.
Recent surveys have produced the following results:
Do you support or oppose gay marriage?
Support Oppose
Males (18-34) 61.2% 33.9%
Females (18-34) 69.2% 22.2%
If the Supreme Court of Canada said that the federal government had to give gays and lesbians the right to be married, do you think that the government should or should not use its power to overrule the court's decision?
Should Should not
The Charter of Rights and Freedoms guarantees equal rights for women and ethnic and religious minorities and other groups. In your opinion, should the Charter also guarantee rights for gays and lesbians?
Yes No
