Gee, just this week, the SC(R)OTUS handed TWO big equal marriage 'wins' and there's not a single thread about it in the 'Marriage' Forum.

THIS is what we mean by willful marginalization of gay people.

Frankly, DUO, I think it is a good thing.  IMO, the lack of discussion means that gay marriage is becoming too normal to warrant a debate. 

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize what you heard was not what I meant...

Do_unto_others,
What about same-sex marriage would you like to see discussed? You are certainly welcome to start a thread on a topic that interests you.
As REteach said, perhaps it's become a dog-bites-man issue (although I rather doubt it, given the kind of vitriolic things on both sides I read online).
My personal experience is that gays and lesbians in committed relationships (including marriage) experience pretty much the same challenges that heterosexual couples face. I believe that learning to effectively communicate with each other - including becoming a better listener - is the key in all relationships.
To be clear, however, this forum is not one for debating the merits of same-sex marriage.

Gay marriage has been legal where I live for a long time....not news anymore. My gay cousin is getting married this summer.

Sequester? Are you on jury duty?


Married life is amazing! I have quickly learned that some of my previous assumptions about marriage were off. If there is one bit of advice that I can say will improve marital quality for anyone is mutual humility and a soft heart. If both are committed to this, it creates a safe environment for the other do do this.


I absolutely love my husband!


I hope your family is also well.
