Regardless of what happens today, Kate and I are still going to be married tomorrow. Writing hate and discrimination into our state’s constitution can’t change that. However, it can make it much more difficult for us to do things like secure health insurance, keep the other financially safe if one of us passed away, have both of us be the legal parents of our (future) children, or even visit the other in the hospital if something unexpected were to happen.
If you are a registered voter in North Carolina, I implore you to vote against Amendment One if you haven’t already. It sure would mean a lot to our family and to thousands of other folks across the state.
