When gay friends argue in favor of same-sex marriage, I always agree and
offer them the one my husband and I are leaving.  Why should straights be
the only ones to have their unenforceable promise to love, honor, and
cherish trap them like houseflies in the web of law? Marriage will not only
open up to gay men and lesbians whole new vistas of guilt, frustration,
claustrophobia, bewilderment, declining self-esteem, unfairness and sorrow,
it will offer them the opportunity to prolong this misery by tormenting each
other for years in court."
