Please read this article. For all the whining we do about our momzillas and getting our DIY projects to look less-DIY, the fact still remains that (most of) us are here because we are able to get married. ABLE TO being the operative words. It is possibly for my fiance and me to be recognized as a legally married couple and we will receive certain rights because of that. Rights that I do not want to take for granted. It is unfair and outrageous that not every person, no matter who they are, gets the same rights as we do. That something as monstrous as is outlined in this article happened to a couple who had a twenty-year long relationship makes my blood boil. Everyone should have the same rights as you and me. Everyone should be able to spend their life with the person they love, the person they have chosen above all others, for the entirety of that life. How would you feel if your signfiicant other was taken away from you in his or her final days and you were not able to say a proper goodbye? And the life you had created together, built together and loved together was ripped out of your hands?

Thank you for posting this.

Both of my parents (my mother and father) are gay and I went to high school not far from Sonoma. I don't have enough words to describe how heartbroken I am by the current state of the equal rights movement in places like California.
