They do, and they did

Our good friends Rick & Nick got married in Washington DC in 2010.  At that time DE had no civil unions or marriage equality.  Now that DE has marriage equality starting this year, their 2010 marriage in DC was automatically recognized in DE.

This past Sat was the 10th anniversary of the date they met, so they decided to celebrate their 10th anniversary by having a celebration/party.  Those in attendance included some of Nick's family from TX and CO, friends from NY, and local friends like Thad & Steven and Spouse & me.  The ceremony was held at the local GLBT community center.  It was short, simple, and sweet, and was followed by food, music and dancing.
We had a very nice time and were very happy for our friends.  Rick & Nick were the 1st people we met when we moved to DE.

I love stories like this. :-) My husband and I married in 2010 as well, following a 15 year courtship. :-) It's truly amazing how far marriage equality has come in the past 10 years.
