D.C. law lets gay families be like any other

March 10, 2010

Kudos to Washington for legalizing same-sex marriage ("Wedding bells ring for same-sex couples in D.C.", March 10). For the many couples who are or will be exchanging vows in D.C., they are no longer denied the rights of marriage that other Americans enjoy and take for granted.

I was moved by the photo of the tearfully happy female couple who were just married and by the statement of a male couple saying how their twin daughters will be part of a "family that is just like every other family in the District." It is a scene that needs to be repeated in every state of the union, for only then can we move closer to saying that all are equal in this country.
