The Supreme Court of the United States has spoken. Today SCOTUS ruled that LOVE IS LOVE which means marriage equality for every couple in this country who has the wish to start a family together. This is big news people. And while most of my gay friends are out and about right now, celebrating in the streets all over the country, waving rainbow flags and singing show tunes…there are doubters that think this decision by the Supreme Court will bring this country to its knees.
There is the Fox News anchor for example who asks the question on live TV this morning: “Can three people marry each other now that gays can?” The answer to that question is NO, you can not. You also can not marry your dog, cat, lizard, horse or other pets you love so dearly. No matter how much you are in love with them. This ruling is for 2 people who are madly in love (or not) with each other. Also, a father cannot marry his son Mr Irons. No way, no how.
And then there are the people who are so upset with this SCOTUS ruling that they want to flee the country and move to Canada as THIS REPORT states. To those frightened folks I say: Please don’t go. You will not be happy in Canada. Not only will they take your beloved firearms from you (that’s a whole nother story) but also is same sex marriage legal in Canada for the last 10 years now.
So, this clearly is upsetting to those who are concerned about the institution of the ‘traditional union’. What are the consequences of this ruling for the ‘one man and one woman marriage’? What will change for the heterosexual couple that is frightened by this decision of the Supreme Court? Well, ask no more as I have written a comprehensive summary of all the things that will change for people living in traditional marriages. You can download this comprehensive and itemized list from the link below. I put it into a PDF format so you can print and pin it right next to your office cubicle, the fridge, the church door…even next to your pillow at night.
So without further ado, here is the downloadable list of items that will change for couples in ‘traditional marriages’ now that SCOTUS ruled equal rights for all: THE LIST
