I just think there is room for compromise. I know that has become a foreign term in this country but I think we can honor tradition while evolving. IMO the important thing is equal rights and protections, not what it is called.
In the new Congressional District 1, the GOP candidate is a total sleaze. He actually took pictures of the other candidates home, cars etc. His photographers were actually stalking her kids.
I believe they should be afforded the equal rights, protections and benefits associated with "marriage". There should be no debating there.

In its decision, the court wrote:
"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."
