Today's letter - More to Marriage than Man and Woman

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger -

A small but vocal minority have found a lucrative industry in convincing people that marriage is only between a man and a woman. They often forget the rest - that a marriage more importantly refers to two people in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law.

My own marriage - which is awkwardly called a 'domestic partnership' in California - bears this out. For us, getting married meant that we were bonded together for the rest of our lives, by family, law and God. My 80-year-old parents gave us both matching rings, and my 6-year-old niece drew us a picture of us together.

If two senior citizens and a child know that "man on woman" is a lie, why don't you?

A marriage does not begin and end with "a man and a woman" in the real world, and it should not do so in California. Please sign AB 43 and help the people of California one step closer to realizing justice and equality.

Yours,
