Marriage is a pursuit of happiness. Under the Declaration of Independence, all citizens have a right to the pursuit of happiness. I defy anyone to deny the joy on gay couples' faces when they were first told they would be allowed to marry. Putting all conflicts aside, putting all gender aside, look at their faces and you can feel that elation emanating from within. To deprive anyone of that is hard-hearted and cruel. It's time we stopped looking at gender roles and began looking at human roles.
I thought of posting something similar myself, but she said it better than me.
