"Marriages are intensely personal, and they’re defined not by courts or by voters, but by the people who live inside of them. That’s traditional marriage, people making a private, daily, lifelong commitment. We can’t make gay marriage illegal because gay marriage is already happening, and it’s been happening for as long as human beings have been pledging themselves to each other.But tragically we deny gay people the rights and the obligations that are associated with their marriages, and that is just discrimination. There will be marriages you don’t like, but those marriages won’t affect yours."
John Green, telling it like it is. (via whysosomber)
