    Bye bye and die marriage-equality blog

    in Politics Progressive

    Coming up on 12 years, my first political blog, Marry in Massachusetts, is going on hiatus. I'd long figured to shut it down when we had legal same-sex marriage nationwide. It's time.


    I'll cover politics here, a bit in my personal blog, Harrumph, and at Left Ahead. In this show, I'll declare a victory for equality. This is the right kind of collateral damage from yesterday's SCOTUS decision.


    I'll talk about that ruling and touch on the majority and dissenting views. I've already done basic analysis on it at Marry in Massachusetts. It's a relief with a tinge of sadness in saying goodbye to the familiar.

    in Current Events

    On Wednesday, March 27th, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the oral arguments of United States v. Windsor, having heard Hollingsworth v. Perry the preceding day, which resulted later in the year, the overturning of DOMA (the Defense of Marriage Act) and the upholding of the unconstitutionality of California's Proposition 8.  Also on March 27tth of 2013, throughout the United States communities rallied in support of Marriage Equality, on which day almost 1,000 people gathered across the street from Palm Springs City Hall.  Nicholas Snow was on hand at the event, and to add historical context to the cases before the Supreme Court now, presents an encore of the speeches given that day.

    Marriage Equality in Illinois

    in Legal

    Through landmark legislation that passed in Springfield, IL last November, Same Sex Marriage has come in effect as of June 1, 2014. With this new legislation comes many questions and even more gray areas that have yet to be discussed or tested by the court and employers.  Questions such as: 


    What benefits are there for same sex couples?  


    How may business be affected by marriage equality? 


    Now that there is marriage equality, how will these couples be impacted in the courtroom in case of a dissolution of their own?


     


    To learn more about these questions and more, tune in to this podcast with Family Law attorney, Jenet Pequeno of Lavelle Law, Ltd.

    Why a Marriage Shouldn't End Because of an Affair

    in Relationships

    People involved in affairs (or any behavior that can end a marriage) often do not think of the long-term consequences of their actions. Additionally, they re-write the short term consequences of their actions as well so they won't feel guilty for the behavior.


    Tonight, in light of the public release of over 30 million email addresses from users of Ashley Madison, we will discuss why you should (or shouldn't) save your marriage after finding out about a spouse's affair. We will also discuss what the consequences are, and how you can use these consequences to actually help save your marriage.


    A marriage doesn't have to end because of an affair.
