I’m proud to say that our marriage is based on unconditional love; a unique bond between two people that few ever experience.

We do not need the approval or endorsement of the closed and simple minded people that populate the New York State Court of Appeals. Regardless of today’s verdict, the love Earl and I share for one another will never be extinguished nor diminished by discrimination.

Our bind is stronger than any piece of paper that says we’re married. Nothing will ever change that.

That being said, when couples must fight for legal recognition of their relationship, it’s clear evidence that the New Dark Ages are truly upon us.
