36. I've known a lot of gay and lesbian couples over the years
and my overwhelming impression is that the emotions and issues are basically the same as with heterosexual couples: first infatuation, deciding that this person is "the one," figuring out how two people with different habits and attitudes can live together without driving each other crazy, temptations to stray, being partners in the routines of everyday life, turning weird and vengeful if the relationship goes sour, or suffering devastating grief if one partner dies before the other.

If an individual has found true love and wants to spend his/her life with another person, who am I to say that their choice is invalid?

People who go into a frenzy over gay marriage really need to get a life.
