Well, in Canada gay people can marry. 🙂 My singing teacher married his partner, whom he has been with for over 25 years, a few years ago. That doesn’t really affect me at all lol, but I guess that is the event that is closest to affecting me, as I am very close to my singing teacher.

Well, my aunt would stop being the last “single” one. Her partner has been around as long as I can remember. We love her like we love my aunt. 🙂

I’m from Canada as well, so it already is legal. I’m very happy that my two gay cousins have a choice to marry who the love, no matter the sexual orientation.

I would finally get to be in my best friend’s wedding!

Also, I’m pretty sure gay weddings would help the economy, and that would affect us all positively.

I’d have to buy a gift for my cousin to get married! haha.  But I’d be more than happy to do that obviously.

Its already legal in Canada 🙂

The most it would affect me is that my dear first cousin from NYC could marry whomever she chooses, and that is important to me. My happiness is important to her and vice-versa.

It doesn’t affect me personally. 

Edit:  But it does affect people I know and love.  So that makes this issue important to me.  And as a fellow human being who believes everyone deserves equal rights.

How does it affect me, as a women in a hetero relationship? It affects me in that I am happier to live in a society that doesn’t privilege my union over others. I live in Canada where equal marriage has been the law for nearly 7 years. It has made a difference in my life to see that the law of my country values all unions equally (especially where I am from specifically, as we recognize civil unions as equal in rights and obligations to marriage) and has allowed people I love and value to marry who they want.

Obviously, it would destroy my marriage.
