I would rather have a well-meaning nation with liberal principles that sometimes go awry than those nations with no well-meaning intentions in the first place.

Sarah Debnam

When I heard the incredible news that marriage is now legal regardless of gender in the USA, it reminded me of something that occurred to me recently - we are the first generation of parents that can describe marriage exactly as it is, an expression and celebration of the love two people have for each another, regardless of gender and sexuality, without exclusions.
