Gay marriage trial underway



I'm still trying to figure out why some people think gay marriage will damage the institution of marriage.

Have these people not seen the divorce rate in the country? But in California, couples are testifying about their right to be married.

Here's the best thing that has come out of this trial:

Testimony from a professor who said the historic definition of marriage in the U.S. involves the consent of two people who enter the arrangement out of love and a commitment to creating a stable household.

Nancy Cott, a U.S. history professor at Harvard and the author of a book on marriage as a public institution, said same-sex marriages easily meet that definition.

The end, bang the gavel and let those people who want to get married do it. Besides, straight people have been messing up marriage since Eve tempted Adam with the apple.
