History is made.
Minnesota is the 12th state to pass marriage equality and it makes me cry tears of happiness.
I have so many friends that can benefit from this. I have so many friends that have felt less than others because of this. Not to mention the millions of people that I don't know that can celebrate today. Now we all have the chance to experience the joy of divorce.
Love is love is love. Everyone should be allowed to love whomever they choose. The fact that this had to be voted on in the first place is ridiculous. If being straight and being able to get married had to be voted on in this day and age, imagine the uproar. But the fact that it passed is what is important.
Being in a relationship is hard work. It takes commitment and communication and trust and everyone should be able to choose all that comes with that relationship. All the legal benefits, all the pride to be able to say "This is my wife/husband.", all the joy of standing up in front of your loved ones and committing yourself to someone else forever, all the inner-calm you get knowing someone is yours.
Marriage equality. It's about damn time. Thank you, Minnesota. You did the right thing.
In spirit of the moment here is this song again SAME LOVE Listen to it. Really listen to it. And then do it again. And let the tears fall.
Love. Equality. Good stuff.
