The social and psychological effects of Facebook are fascinating.

I obviously support gay marriage and hope the Supreme Court does too, but I also think that we should stop treating marriage as an ideal. While I agree that children should be raised in loving households, I dislike the argument pro-equality proponents use that having two loving parents is better than having one. To begin, there are individuals (like myself) who weren’t raised by your standard two-parent household but had wonderful (albeit complex) childhoods. Let’s face it- the nuclear family model is invalid in the modern era. Yes, all relationships deserve equal legal status, but it’s time to critically examine the social construct of marriage itself. Gay marriage is OK, but divorce is also OK, and so are open relationships. What’s important is love.
