LOUISVILLE — Erin Brock says she’s prepared to fight to have her love legally recognized by the state of Indiana.
Brock and her financé Melissa Love share a home and children in Jeffersonville and are one of four same-sex couples from southern Indiana suing Indiana Gov. Mike Pence in federal court to allow them to legally marry or to have their marriages in other states recognized by Indiana.
“If I had the chance to talk to the governor, I would say, ‘It’s about love,’” Brock said. “‘And, I get that there are politics that go on, but I don’t care. I don’t care about that. I care about the fact that I want to love someone for the rest of my life.”
While Brock and Love have considered a destination wedding for the opportunity to enjoy their nuptials, the women are willing to delay plans and put up a fight for their right to be wed in their hometown in the company of friends and families.
