What is fascinating about marriage is why anyone wants to get married. Alain de Botton.
i could not agree more.
if marriage, the institution, was a school, would you send your children to it? it having such an appalling failure rate.
as a gay man i did not protest for years to disappear into the norm of government/church institutionalisation but to be recognised as different but equal. i am not a number.
what happened to gay ‘pride’?
