Just my opinion

In my mind, Britney Spears' 50-hour marriage and those 3-month Hollywood serial marriages are more damaging to the idea of the sanctity of marriage than the "damaging" effects of letting two homosexual adults make a consensual lifetime commitment. I wish the legislatures would stop wasting their time on issues like this and focus on more important things, like putting together systems which actually empower people to get out of poverty.
