This week saw two stars of their respective sports tie the knot in same-sex weddings. Diana Taurasi of the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury married Penny Taylor, her former teammate with whom she won multiple WNBA titles. "I would hope people would be happy for two people that love each other,” Taylor said. “At the end of the day, it's pretty simple." Also this weekend, Abby Wambach, the U.S. women's soccer legend, announced she has gotten married to a woman. And last week, Olympic diver Tom Daley married his longtime boyfriend.
