Many of us wondered if we would live to see this day, the day the US Government would support what has come to be called marriage equality – the idea that two people of the same gender, who choose to embrace all that marriage entails, have the same right to marry as two people who happen to be a man and a woman. Friday last, June 26, 2015…the Supreme Court, stated same gender couples deserve “equal dignity in the eyes of the law.”
Marriage inequality is already enshrined in our laws. State Governments (here in the USA), in fact, restrict who can get married. None allow polygamy; none allow brother-sister, mother-son, and father-daughter unions. Four States require both parties to “pass” a blood test, proving you are not infected with one or more STI’s (usually syphilis and gonorrhea).
