"When we live authentically we create an opportunity for others to walk out of their dark prisons of pretend into freedom."
: I care less than you do, if that's possible, with one exception - age limitations. If you are 15 or younger, you're still considered a child by most states - but there are states that allow marriage at 15! Kansas allows marriage at age 15, and New Hampshire is 13 for bride, 14 for groom. These two States, plus the other 48 do require approval from a judge and one or both parents if the persons involved are less than 18 years of age or younger, however. In Shakespeare's tale of Romeo and Juliet, both committed suicide when they couldn't marry at 16 and 13 respectively. Stupid, silly teenagers!
For the rest of the populace, marry whomever you wish and good luck! "I love being married. It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life." >>Rita Rudner.
Of course irrational prejudice is not a valid basis for any law, state or federal. That would be relevant if state laws excluding same-sex partners had no rational basis. Since they do, it is not.
