This weekend in the UK it became legal for same sex couples to get married.
First of all, congratulations to all those couples that have gotten married. I’m sure it was something you have all been waiting for and I hope it was everything you wanted it to be.
I was thinking about this last night and I never realised just how much I took the right to get married for granted. Young girls always imagine their wedding day at some point and it had never really occurred to me that other couldn’t really experience the same excitement and planning and countdown that I’ll get to experience. Awful really, isn’t it?
Obviously there is still a long way to go. But this is a step in the right direction. Clearly we are moving forward as a society and granting rights to be people, which they should already have.
I hope as we go forward from this, more and more will be done to make sure that there is true equality to everybody and not just some people.
Celebrities and normal people alike have been celebrating this great achievement this weekend and here’s hoping that this is not the last celebration we have.
