I too am still surprised by ignorant and or hateful bias in stuff like this.<br /><br />Here in Canada same-sex marriage has been legal since 2005 (in some provinces earlier), hence how K and I are getting married next month. <br /><br />Adoption also legal here, as is serving in the military... not that I want to do either of those things!Brahmhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11883394577835241921noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-66173086690147951312010-04-08T15:02:34.404-06:002010-04-08T15:02:34.404-06:00Living in the UK where gay marriages have been aro...Living in the UK where gay marriages have been around ages, I am still flabberghasted that same-sex marriage continues to be banned in some states. I mean WHY? WTF?<br /><br />Actually Brahm, I think once the marriage battle is won, (from my experience in the UK), the next hurdle is allowing gay couples to adopt children. What is the situation in the US with regards this? Oh, and I thought you might like this extract from a UK paper<br /><br />http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1506657/Gay-and-lesbian-couples-given-adoption-rights.htmlAnnie (Lady M) xhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00086309578820420578noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-57485709730390376302010-04-08T11:51:46.837-06:002010-04-08T11:51:46.837-06:00I think the biggest problem in marraige is the lac...I think the biggest problem in marraige is the lack of love and commitment. It&#39;s not &quot;any port in a storm&quot;. It&#39;s more like riding out the storm together. Home/marraige should be the safest place where you are free to be, where you bring out the best in each other. Where you know that no matter what happens, You will always have each other. I hate that marraige is so disposible.

And yes agree that she had opportunity that most of us don&#39;t, which is to take a year off and eat and find yourself.<br /><br />Just read her new book on marriage, Committed, which I also liked a lot - she travels the world looking into marriage and what it means to different cultures, basically because she is anti-marriage and now has to marry her boyfriend or he will be deported. Is a good read!Brahmhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/11883394577835241921noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-31748973347518752182010-04-08T11:33:27.899-06:002010-04-08T11:33:27.899-06:00It IS a cute little argument for marriage equality...It IS a cute little argument for marriage equality, and makes perfect sense........to people who HAVE sense!Bobhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/15302478126147924237noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-65215259012196483572010-04-08T10:51:53.676-06:002010-04-08T10:51:53.676-06:00love her!love her!Tiffany Harkleroadhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/06294076599801322345noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-45292250564025884902010-04-08T10:35:30.028-06:002010-04-08T10:35:30.028-06:00With regard to her comment regarding same sex marr...With regard to her comment regarding same sex marriage, what she says makes absolute sense. Changing the landscape of what a marriage should be like has been the best thing I have lived to see. <br /><br />I read the book you posted and it was good, however, while reading it my thoughts were she was very lucky that she was in a position that after a divorce she can take off and wander around the globe finding herself. Not to many women can and are in that position.WannabeVirginia W.http://www.blogger.com/profile/16507756727246102557noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-134830813707647265.post-91391001695200292032010-04-08T08:13:24.819-06:002010-04-08T08:13:24.819-06:00Love it!
