Marriage Equality Now the Law of The Land
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry. “The court’s action marks the culmination of an unprecedented upheaval in public opinion and the nation’s jurisprudence. Advocates called it the most pressing civil rights issue of modern times…” (Washington Post).
So instead of posting about a general writing topic today, I wanted to take a moment and acknowledge this landmark decision. As a human being, it’s about time that love is not limited to male/female couples, and as a romance writer, this is just one more step in the direction where m/m and f/f romance stories may become as popular and mainstream as “traditional” m/f romances.
We write about the emotional spark between our couples, their emotional journey, the love they build, and what it takes to get to their happily ever after. Today marks a day where those in real life can fully experience the fantasy.
