Marriage is a vital institution to the stability of our society.  A strong marriage makes a strong family and a strong foundation for their future.  As the child of divorced parents who has grown into a husband, father, and an officiant of weddings, I firmly believe that the sanctity of marriage is in the commitment of the partners, not their genders.

All Americans have equal rights and protections under our Constitution, which includes the right to marry and the protections that the institution provides.
