That is one of the biggest arguments for allowing SSM. "SSM won't affect my family or my marriage!"
Well, duh, people! I'm sure it would never affect my marriage as far as my relationship with my spouse goes. I mean, that's a no-brainer, right? But it's wrong to say it won't affect families. Or invade our lives.
Recently (? Not sure of the date) a man was arrested in Massachusetts (where SSM is now legal) because he wanted to opt his son out of SSM education. His FIVE YEAR OLD son. I mean, parents can opt their kids out of things against their religion, right? Parents can opt their kids out of Sex Ed., sports, activities, even required reading in English class. But this man was told he couldn't opt his kids out of "diversity day" because SSM was legal, and therefore deemed as "Normal" and "Moral."
Here's the video link.
P.S. If you are here simply to bash me (as in you've never read my blog before but you feel the need to lecture me), then go somewhere else. I don't mind discussion; I do mind contention.
*Update: Here is a video with a positive message about marriage and why it's not a "civil right" but a strong institution that stabilizes society and raises the next generation.
