Equal Marriage Comes to Britain!
Britain has had civil partnerships since 2005, but a clear majority felt that we needed full marriage equality. As of last Saturday, that’s what we have. Our view is clear: Marriage is one of our society’s most important institutions. By opening it to all, we strengthen that institution. We also strengthen society more generally, because, as James Madison once wrote, “Equal laws protecting equal rights” are “the best guarantee of loyalty and love of country.”
