It’s Freedom to Marry Week, so perhaps it’s not surprising. But, this morning as I was having my morning cuddle with the boy (decked out to the nines today — many a sparkle to be seen), he says to me, “Tell me about long ago when there were different rules for getting married. Who couldn’t get married?” I explained to him, alas, that the rules only changed in our state, and that they changed within his lifetime. I know I wrote some about this conversation yesterday, but I kid you not, he brought it up today. So we had a little refresher conversation, after which Q vowed to “cast a spell on everyone” so that they say two women can get married or two men can get married.
He was appalled that folks in California changed their mind about letting queer folks get married. Appalled. Again, I call on you to listen to the logic of a 5 year old. It’s simple: if you’re allowed to do something one day, you can’t just change your mind the next.
If he could sign the marriage resolution, he would. Maybe now’s the time for an email address?
