It's all about family

October 22, 2009

Re "In Maine, it's like Prop. 8 all over again," Oct. 20

I suppose the absurd statement made by a Maine anti-gay-marriage worker -- "There is no family without mom and dad" -- might make sense were there not single-parent families, families headed by one or two grandparents, gay families, adoptive families, families headed by an older sibling and even the ultra-extreme Octomom's family.

Of all of those families, only one group does not have accompanying legal rights and responsibilities, and that needs fixing.

Two unwed adults who love each other should have the right to marry. Our society needs all its "building blocks."
