LAME

June 3, 2009 at 8:09 pm 2 comments

Alex and I know a couple that got married on a whim and within only a month of knowing each other. We have bets on how long it will last because they’re completely wrong for each other and aren’t known for making good decisions. However, it’s their right to make this bad decision, go down to the courthouse, obtain a marriage license, and reap the benefits of marriage in the United States.

It’s a shame that the gay couple my mom cares for (one 92, the other 82) can’t have the same benefits. They’ve been together for at least half a century.

This is a sad sad world sometimes!

    wow, that is sad. maybe some day things will be different, maybe people won’t get married just to do it and maybe those of the same sex will be accepted. it is sad how our country can’t get past that.

    isn’t it weird to think that 1/2 the weddings we attend won’t make it?
