I just wanted to take some time out of my day to send my suppory to Katherine & Ann Louise. as a hetrosexual woman I am often asked by other "straight" friends why I have sidned up to Marriage Equality and why I care so much.
The answer is very simple and always the same..anyone who wishes to marry the person they love has a right to do so and to have their union recognised legally if that is their desire. SGLBTQ..everyone deserves love.
Your commitment to each other, the love you both so obviously feel for one another, no one has the right to stop your union from being fully and leagaly recognised for what it is, a marriage, the same as any other.
I only hope that one day I should be as lucky to meet my soulmate.
The very best of luck to both of you. You are in my thoughts.
