"The source continues to say that in the morning blessings, where a man says, "Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, Who has not made me a woman," such a man should end the blessing instead, "Who has changed me into a man" (Rabbi Waldenberg states elsewhere that a male who becomes female would say, "Who has changed me according to His will," rather than the standard, "Who has made me according to His will," which is said by women)." http://www.starways.net/beth/tzitz.html Thanks to Saul Goode (#4) for this authoritative halakhic source. Somebody has to be the pathbreaker. I personally object to gay "marriage". As far as "commitment", this is a solution whose time has come, I believe. It makes sense for the Reforms who recognize its social importance to construct some "authorized format" for it which will endow it with significance, in the eyes of the believing community. The regular marriage ceremony also did not come down to us from heaven.
