From Right 2 Left: In defense of marriage
Excerpted from this post at From Right 2 Left
Marriage must be defended. It is under attack from extremists. At a time when cohabitation without commitment and divorce are at all time highs, this is not the time to weaken traditional values related to marriage. ... we should strengthen marriage by offering things like covenant marriage, which provides the additional security of making no-fault divorce unavailable to those who chose it. It is also why marriage should be permitted, or encouraged, for gay couples. Gay partners have children. They rely upon each other in times of need. But, today, they are denied access to the crucial stabilizing instrument of marriage.
