Same-sex couples react to Supreme Court rulings
I am NOT ashamed to Love who I Love!
- zdan, CNN iReport producer
My partner Jason & I have been together for over 4 years, and we look forward to the day when we can share the same rights and privileges as heterosexual couples. Today's decisions are great strides towards those hopes, but we're well-aware there are many battles ahead. I was not expecting to feel so emotional this morning, but I cannot stop thinking about how much I love this man, and how I want to be his husband someday. Kentucky does not yet recognize gay marriage, but maybe one day, they will. We love each other, and we look forward to growing old together. So what makes our desire to feel the same level of security and protection from a government we contribute to so wrong? Hopefully, today's rulings will push us all closer to a world where that question is no longer relevant.
