Today will occur the first legal marriages for same sex couples in California (story).
My trepidation aside, Rob, the twins, and I will be headed west in a month to join the masses hoping for a lasting chance at equal treatment. We will, in fact, be married on our 13th anniversary; the reservations are set.
I know, it makes little sense when it'll all be void once we land back in our home state of Utah. But I need to feel like I have all the legal protection I can get for my family; besides, who knows, maybe we will have to move away someday. I'll just sleep a bit better.
To that end, I've began putting up some reasons for marriage equality at isocrat.org (I know, the site is taking way too long to launch, but I just keep on thinking of new stuff I want to add in). If anyone cares to take a look, I'd appreciate an editing and I'd love additional suggestions to add to my lists.
Here's a page of reasons for same-sex marriage
Here's a page on statistical evidence from jurisdictions that have given such marriage rights.
Anyway, here's to hope, and wish us luck (That the law will stick, not for our marriage. I'm pretty sure I've picked the right guy after all these years :-)).
