Rep. Glenn Thompson (R-Pa.) last week joined the majority of his GOP colleagues in voting against the “Respect for Marriage Act.” Thompson attended his gay son’s wedding three days later and was “very happy” to welcome his new son-in-law to his family.

Thompson’s gay son confimed to NBC News that he “married the love of his life” last Friday and his “father was there.” Thompson’s press secretary, Madison Stone, further attested to Thompson’s presence in the wedding.

In an office statement she stated, “Congressman and Mrs. Thompson were thrilled to attend and celebrate their son’s marriage on Friday night as he began this new chapter in his life.”  Last Tuesday, Thompson joined 156 other House Republican members and voted against the “Respect for Marriage Act,” which would codify marriage rights for same-sex couples amid fears those rights are at risk in the aftermath of the U.S.
