I am overjoyed about today’s Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality although personally, I no longer believe in the institution of marriage. Yet I still believe that everyone should have the right to marry if they wish to do so.
I was married for 10 years and the best part of the whole debacle was the wedding. (Yes, I throw one hell of a great party.) 🙂 As I’ve emerged into my new life I’ve decided that I don’t need the government involved in my relationships and I don’t want a piece of paper to tie my life to that of another human. I want love to connect us, I want to know my partner is with me because of our intense connection and not because a contract holds us together. I want to wake up everyday knowing that I am loved because of me and not for tax purposes.
This is my opinion for ME and me alone. I still love weddings and I will probably always cry when I hear a proposal story. Plus who’s to say that I won’t one day hold another grand party (only without the ceremony before hand)? Yet I’m also keenly aware that I may change my mind some day and decide to take the plunge again (although I seriously doubt it) but I will allow myself that freedom because…who the fuck knows what the future holds.
For now, I will revel in today’s announcement and witness the love that flows from so many who are finally free to legally marry the ones they love. I lift my glass to all of you and wish you all the happiness in the world.
Cheers my friends. Let Love Rule!
