Eat Pray Love Gay Marriage
"Instead of trying to 'save' the institution of marriage by excluding gay couples from matrimony, maybe it's smarter to rescue marriage by letting same-sex couples move in and gentrify the place. It's a cute argument, but it has a strong historic resonance --- every few generations, marriage opens its doors a little wider and lets in a new population who had previously been excluded, and that breathes new life into the whole institution."
