There was a point in time when my Grandparents would have been forbidden to marry in this country. She is Mexican and by marrying a man of European descent it was considered an interracial marriage. Until the day she died my (Paternal) Great-Grandmother shunned her for being of a different ethnicity. She wasn't the only one to give them verbal abuse for marrying. I might have never existed if those opinions and laws had remained. My Grandparents married because they loved each other, it had nothing to do with the color of their skin.
Our generation's fight is to let marriage be equal not just for all races but for all genders. Love is love. I support marriage equality.
