I'm sure there was a time when that was thought of about slavery...good luck with that in the Southern states or West Virginia
Separate but equal.New Jersey already has civil unions, which I think is sufficient as long as they guarantee the same rights as married couples. I know there are members of the LGBT community who will argue me about that.
Exactly. Good decision, but long overdue. There's no logical reason to deny gay-marriage. Why are so many people against something that won't effect them in any way (certainly not in a negative one) but is very important for those people involved and actually improves their quality of life?There is no reason to deny two non-related consenting adults the right to marry. This isn't holy matrimony and it has nothing to do with the church or religion, it's is a legal social contract between two people, and 'the state' has awarded benefits to the people who voluntarily choose this social contract. If the state did not give those benefits, then this probably wouldn't be an issue.
There was a time in the US when a married woman was considered property with no rights of her own, but thankfully our society progressed past that 'traditional' definition of marriage. It is time for us to make another step and recognize the rights of committed same sex couples.
Met the Arnold...while I don't wanna give him much...(although did DID say he wasn't a great cultural conservative...) I don't want to trivially take anything away.Well, the State Leg. legalized gay marriage twice already; the only reason it was never signed into law was 'cause we have a
cyborgRepublican for a governor.
The timing is interesting but this has been in court for four years now, since Newsom created all that fuss back then; I don't think there was anything behind the timing other than they finally got around to deciding on the case.
Yeah, you can have half of my souvenirs from the 'not towels' category (which basically means all my back issues of Tennis mag). :ras::spit: I'm still your gay hubby, but now I have rights to half your tennis souvenirs. :devil: Pay up! :armed: :lol:
