Seven years ago today, the first same-sex nuptials were legalized in Massachusetts, occasioning reactions that ran the gamut from teary-eyed joy to furious disbelief. Soon after, my husband and I adopted a baby girl, and have busied ourselves ever since with things like teaching her to walk and to write the alphabet. Outside our domestic bubble, the airwaves have been thick with dire warnings from preachers and politicos who argue that marriages like ours will soon cause the collapse of the entire institution, leaving behind an amoral world of incest and bestiality. But the passage of time has not only defied these predictions; it has proved the opposite to be true: marriage has gotten stronger.
I found some fascinating statistics that I discuss in my article here at the Huffington Post via Red Room. Read, share, and comment!
