Over the weekend, U.S. Marine Corps captain Matthew Phelps proposed to his partner Ben Schock insider the White House. The historic proposal is the first to take place in the White House between two members of the same sex (though not the first in the LGBT community). Photos of the special moment have gone viral, and the couple says they are “blown away by the amazing love and support we have received.” (Click to see the full-size photos.)
