I don't want to get married. I want to be married. I don't care about a church. It's not about some ceremony that people attend. It's about a status in life that people respect and means something. It's about commitment. It's about love. It's about respect. I want to display my husband proudly and not have to explain that yes he's my significant other. I want the feeling of knowing my relationship and spouse will be protected by the government.
