Obama comes out for same sex marriage

Good for Obama for supporting same-sex marriage.

This is not something I spend a lot of time thinking about. I say,” live and let live.’ I don’t know why anyone cares so much about what other people do. If they’re not hurting you, let them do whatever they want.

Now the politicians are going to spend a lot of time focusing on this issue, not the ones  affecting everyone.  Like the economy, jobs and health care.

Tonight I watched people discussing this on TV.

Paul Belgala, one of the talking heads said he thinks it will hurt Obama politically. He thinks it will hurt Obama with older voters, and help with younger voters. I think he may be surprised about that. I think plenty of baby boomers share my feelings.

They showed a clip of Mitt Romney saying, ” I believe marriage should take place between a man and a woman.” I’m all for that. I’ve been in one for a long time. It works for me.

I was in a chorus with a lot of gay woman. They were just as happy in their same-sex marriages. It worked for them. They had very well-adjusted kids too. What’s better than having 2 loving mothers,  2 loving fathers, or a mother and a father?

I think it’s nice if anyone can stay married for longer than a few years. I think it’s nice if anyone gets married at all. I think the challenge is staying married.

I myself, do not take this story literally. But, there are plenty of people who do. I expect to hear from some of them.

What do you think?

  1. I have friends that are same sex partners. The one couple have adopted two boys. They are very active in their lives and I know that they are strong enough in their relationship to endure the comments and challenges that may come their way once the boys are in higher grades at school.
    I like what you said about a couple having commitment to get married and work at their marriage so it can last more than a few years. I don’t feel we are in any position to judge the same sex issue.

  2. Thanks for your comment! Agreed. It’s a case of people sticking their noses in other people’s business. So, they don’t have to think about what they’re doing in their own lives. It’s annoying!
