LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Why marriage is important

Rutland Herald
August 7, 2007
This September my civil union partner and I will celebrate 32 years of our long-term commitment. It would be so much easier to proclaim that we are a married couple, and more understandable, especially to those who live outside of Vermont and the United States. Try traveling to a state that does not recognize civil unions, which is 47 states in the United States. If you think civil unions are good enough, ask a gay friend or family member. [link]
