Very good article in Salon today on feminists and marriage. I always swore that I’d never do it, but I’ve been wavering in the years since college. Some of my best friends have gotten married and even I can’t deny that it was the right thing for them to do. They make it seem like the happiest decision they ever made. (Yes, Brigita, I include you in that group, even though your stressing freaks me out sometimes.) But how do I reconcile that with the fact that the very same institution is legally denied to some of my best friends, simply because they fall in love with people of the same gender? Not that I think any of them would resent me for making that choice, but personally I don’t know if I could do that. And I also know several happy couples who aren’t married, who have kids and do everything together without buying into the system. Is that any better? What do you guys think?
