(Newser) – Hallmark has developed a line of four greeting cards themed for same-sex marriages, civil unions, and commitment ceremonies. The designs, in stores this summer, include two overlapping tuxedos, a cascade of rainbow-hued hearts, and a message, "Two hearts. One promise," reports Gaywire.com. "It's our goal to be inclusive rather than exclusive so that our products appeal to the widest range of people who wish to connect with one another," said a Hallmark statement.
