@2dBride:

It’s horrible.  History will not look kindly on those legislators, letting fear and their own careers take precedence over ensuring equality.  That’s no comfort to you or all those people whose unions will not be recognized, of course.  But I just wanted to reach out and say I’m sorry. 🙁

I find it so sad that civil rights are enforced only by popular vote.  🙁  

I hope that everyone can have equal rights in the USA really soon.   It makes me so sad.

When dealing with difficult times like this, it really helps to just stay positive.  I truly believe that same-sex marriage will be legal throughout this country very soon.  I’m hoping that thist time in Maryland things will change for the better, but until then keep your hopes up.  I can’t even imagine the frustration LBGTQ brides and grooms are facing now, when we are so close to change and yet so seemingly far away!  My sister is in the same boat as you, by the way, so I do have a small window into your frustrations.

Wishing you the best!

I am surprised, we are a pretty liberal state.  I was really hoping for this to go through.  I personally have not come across anyone here who was against it.  Many for it, a lot indifferent- but no one outright against.

So unfortunate.  I keep thinking things are going to change, but it’s taking SOOOO long. 

 

@eeniebeans:  When it comes to this issue, traditional understanding of state politics don’t really apply.  Just think back to California.  It’s the strangest thing.

I only know a few people against it. One being my husband. We get into the WORST arguments over it. I hope next year brings equality.

Sigh…maybe next year. =/ It’s disheartening that so many people are against equality. Jaysus.

🙁 This is awful! I live in California and the popular votes regarding gay marriage are so frustrating here too!
