My Thoughts

Equality is not always Equal

Tonight many of us celebrate because a victory has been won for the Gay community in NYC. It shouldn;t have been a celebration, but rather a way of life. Unfortunate, there are many in our beloved country that feel it's sinful for some to unite as a married couple if they belong to the same sex .

Many folks will continue to frown upon those states that endorse same-sex marriages. Very much as many states frown upon mix raced couples. Remember how angry folks would get and still get whenever they see a couple from different races. Folks tend to get very uptight with individuals who change things.

For those brave souls who will come forward and get married, be aware that many churches will not perform your wedding vows. Be prepared to pay alot for a minister to perform the vows. And be prepared to stand on very long lines in the County Clerk's office.

With that being said, I applaud and honor you for your choice to marry. I do however recommend a healthy pre-marital dialogue so you can be prepared for the natural roller coaster ride that comes with marriage.

There is a psychological mind switch that goes off when couples get married. You can ask any heterosexual couple and they will explain what I mean. Some folks do change when they get married. I advise you to keep communicating always honest and open. And keep the romance alive as if you were still dating. Don't ever get comfortable just because you are now legally bonded.

. . . to NY in embracing gay marriage. I live in Vermont, where it began. We now have several good neighbors! This is a joy.
