Vote NO and protect the marriage minority

To be married means to be outnumbered.

Yes, marriage is threatened. Even for those for whom it is legal, many forgo because of the “false security of a wedding ring”. Help strengthen marriage by voting NO this November against Virginia’s so-called marriage amendment and have marriage opened to all so that we can have this strong traditional institution back in the majority.

Jennifer Lynch, a 28-year-old stage manager in New York, said she had lived on the Lower East Side with her boyfriend, who is 37 and divorced, for most of the five years they have been a couple.

“Cohabitating is our choice, and we have no intention to be married,” Ms. Lynch said. “There is little difference between what we do and what married people do. We love each other, exist together, all of our decisions are based upon each other. Everyone we care about knows this.”

If anything, she added, “not having the false security of wedding rings makes us work even a little harder.”

Read about it all here and ask yourself why the proponents of Virginia’s so-called marriage amendment wish to weaken a noble institution by limiting its benefits to the minority – vote NO and stop their attack on marriage.

One Response to Vote NO and protect the marriage minority

  1. David says:

    Eventually people will get it. The institution of marriage will die unless it reflects how real people actually build a life with a partner. Marriage, in reality, has already been radically redefined to be a freely chosen and equal partnership between two adults. That is decidedly not what it was 400 years ago.

    But there is no way of forcing that understanding. Defeating the amendment won’t do a thing to open marriage to anyone, it will only allow us as a society to continue having a conversation about marriage and what it actually is. What the amendment proponents are trying to do is to cut off that conversation, because they know perfectly well the direction it’s headed.
