Mary Cheney gave the news to her Facebook friends Friday afternoon: "Very happy to announce that as of this morning, Heather and I are legally married (at least in DC). 20 years to the day after our first date."
Cheney, 43, the younger daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, and Heather Poe have two children: Samuel, 5, and Sarah, 2. The family calls Virginia home, but it was in Washington, D.C., where gay marriage has been legal since 2010, that the longtime couple made it official.
Cheney's father, a conservative Republican who made a public endorsement of same-sex marriage in 2009, and her mother, Lynne, congratulated Mary in a statement Friday.
