I Love NY: Same Sex Marriage Is Law



A healthy sense of self includes being validated and recognized by others. Also vital is the ability to share the rights and liberties of those around you.

Nice job, New York. It's about time.

Thanks for writing this! It's a good step in the right direction. But I was reminded by a jerk today that we have a long way to go.

Xmichra,
It shouldn't take as long as it has.... but yes, let's keep the momentum going. I will check out the award too. Thank you.

Wanda,
Thanks :)

Cracker,
I bet there was much celebrating in the streets!

Leesa,
SO happy to see you. Are you blogging again? I'm gonna come by and visit to see if that's so.



Awake,
Don't you just hate when people take the wind out of your sails. Let's celebrate the victory and not let those who are misinformed, ignorant or just hateful ruin this moment.

I share your sentiment, Deb. About bloody time indeed. Now if all the other foot-dragging states would follow suit.

I keep forgetting that Same Sex marriage isn't legal in a lot of places because it's been legal here in Toronto for so long already. This is such great news :)

Dr. Deb said...

Mr. Write and Dawn,
You Canadians have always been trendsetters. Makes me think of retiring to your country, that is, if you'll have me!

Yay for NY, now lets go Cali!

Same sex marriage is not yet law in Australia(as far as Iam aware).

As I deal frequently with relationship issues in my Family Practice, I can appreciate how difficult it must be for the relatioship if the relationship does not have the validation and support of their families and the wider community.
