On Facebook, a college classmate living in Virginia offered this beautiful commentary on the results earlier this week in North Carolina and I reprint it with his permission:
Regarding North Carolina, my second thought is… I have been with Eric for nearly seventeen years. Whatever we have we got from ourselves, our families, and our friends. Whatever we still need we will get from those same sources. At this point, I honestly cannot imagine feeling any more married than I already feel. There is nothing in the current heterosexual reality that I feel inspired any longer to pursue.
