    A possibility is different than expecting it, as you seemed to be. My husband and I went into our marriage with the expectation that we would work through any problems and take care of ourselves if we someone found a problem we couldn't resolve. Communication about the possible end of a marriage is just as important as communication about the marriage itself, and it should include expectations about what is expected for possible care for the other. It should be agreed upon based on the circumstances and if those change, just as a judge would decide.

    Today is truly a great day for the United States. Hopefully our government can take action on curtailing discrimination against LGBT citizens in the areas of employment and housing as well.

    Btw, the argument that churches will be forced to carry out gay marriages is a myth. That's not what this decision addressed. It addressed the states that were not issuing same sex marriage licenses and recognition of other state's same sex marriages; that is all. No church in the United States has ever been forced to recognize any wedding, ever.

    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    No they didn't.

    I hope you are not waiting for the anti-SSM-ers to answer that question,because you may be in for a long wait.

    It is absolute nonsense that the state could decide who can marry and who cannot. ANY consenting adults should be able to marry.

    And the hypocrisy of the right saying that same sex marriage is against the Bible, yet the Pope now supports global warming being caused by humanity - though the right is still insisting there is little/no global warming.

    So, basically, the right just wants to believe whatever it wants and only uses the Bible whenever it suits them.


    Once again, I am neither lib nor con.
    You realize that your definition of the right here is very limited. It also ignores that the media panders to the extremists for shock value and to sell news? I've found that many liberals and independents watch Fox News to have something to hate on. I only watch local news on fox or when hln or cnn is on commercial. Even then I prefer to use my phone.

    I am not a Catholic, trust me Catholic churches are not required to marry me, it's been that way forever. No wait is required.

    Yeah, here comes the "angry god" as a hitman theme. You soooo want your god to start killing and punishing that it excites you. How savage of you.
