Same Sex Couples

Supreme Court Ruling 2015

The Nature of marriage is that, 

through it’s enduring bond, 

two persons together can find other freedoms,

such as expression,

intimacy,

and spirituality.

 

This is true for all persons, whatever their sexual orientation.

 

There is dignity in the bond between two people who seek to marry and in their autonomy to make such profound choices. 

He's Not Perfect (song lyrics)

He’s not perfect.

You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. 

But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold on to him and give him the most you can. 

He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. 

Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. 

Don’t analyze. 

Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. 

Love hard when there is love to be had, because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.

Dynasty (song lyrics)

The tale survives of two men

Who fell in love "at first sight";

Who shared everything

In unbounded intimacy

Including the pillow

And the red embroidered coverlet

Which had been in the family

For generations.

Whether they had bad days,

Domestic arguments

Or inappropriate dreams
We do not know –

No doubt such burrs

Were worked away by time

Polishing its story;

How they found each other

And lived together all their lives,

And died on the same day,

And were buried by the grieving town

On Mount Luofo's peak

With their pillow and red coverlet;

And a pine tree grew

Out of the grave

Like the character for longevity

And true love.

Such is the legend.

I like to think of them,
Pan Zhang and Wang Zhangxian,

In the crowd of well-wishers

Waiting in the April sunshine,

Yes, under white cherry trees

In full bloom, for us

Here and now, on this day

Early in the century,

In our very best suits and ties,

With our new rings

Growing warm on our fingers

Like keepsakes of light

Saved from the stars.
