    Has your marriage changed since SCOTUS ruling?

    Yes or no, and why if yes. Please.

    How long have you been married?

    Did the SSM ruling by SCOTUS somehow change your marriage?

    Re: Has your marriage changed since SCOTUS ruling?

    I've been married for 25 years.

    Not a damn thing has changed at all for us.

    We don't let other people define our marriage. It's ours. We define it.

    Also - it's a damn good marriage.

    I think anyone, who bases their marital decision making based on the SCOTUS ruling should have their head checked.

    Marriage is about what it means to the individual, marriage has never and will never belong solely to one religious group.

    My marriage has changed. It's now a day older. Celebrating our 24th anniversary tonight as a matter of fact (it's actually on Monday).

    Married for over 8 years, and no, there is no difference, except my husband is probably hoping there will be less of me talking about this issue.

    For some reason, I thought you were gay.

    I'm straight and have two kids. Trying to convince the husband to have a third. I'm just really passionate about this issue.

    Oh, okay. I must have you confused with someone else. Sorry. All the best to you and yours.

    Re: Has your marriage changed since SCOTUS ruling?

    It's stupid questions like this that trivialize the real problem with recent Supreme Court rulings. The problem is, many of them have little to do with law and everything to do with a Supreme Court that's lost its way. It no longer sees itself as an interpreter of the law under the confines of the constitution. It now sees itself as social engineers, charged with making the hard decisions that a divided America is too fractured to make politically. That's wrong.

    And if Chief Justice Roberts wasn't so tragically conflicted and idiotic, he'd be comical. He's spent two years ignoring the constitution and the letter of the law to manufacture two majority decisions related to the ACA and he has the gall to criticize the majority in the same sex marriage ruling for making a decision that has nothing to do with the constitution and is just a feel good move. The man should resign or be impeached before he can do any more harm.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Equal rights are "trivial" and NOT something SCOTUS should be bothered with???

    You're Canadian. Obviously you're opinions are worthless in this context.
