This November 6, 2012, Maryland, our state of residency will vote on a number of issues to include our freedom to obtain a civil marriage license. Question number 6 will ask if Maryland voters agree to our right to commit to our love through marriage.
In this agreement, same-sex couples will be granted the civil right to marry their partners and receive the same lawful protections as other married couples. Religious organizations and clergy will maintain their freedom to continue
We understand the importance of having virtues, values, and perspectives respected. With all the love and care we have for each other and the world, we still face the world knowing that someone may not respect us because they judge our love as "different". We realize that we don't relate to EVERYONE. However, we try to respect and love people despite differences. Race, religion, gender, culture, education, sexual orientation, class, and other categories we are often divided by don't determine the respect, love, and equality we wish for and strive to show all people.
We're asking for your pledge to vote for marriage equality in Maryland or support it if you're not a resident. Not only would your support make the difference in our state moving forward, but in our love moving forward. The election is a short distance away, and we want to know where you stand (no matter what side). We have many friends and family who visit and invite us, but we honestly don't know how some feel about marriage equality.
