Gay marriage passed in NYS last week, and my response is very simple. I believe that any gay consenting adult couple in love should have every right to be just as happy, or just as miserable in marriage as any straight consenting adult couple in love. Also, if there are children, and there will be, the children deserve to be allowed as dependents on either or both parents health and life insurances. Long live love, and may God bless these unions. Enough said. Now let NYS get on to more pressing concerns — like the economy!
