Marriage Matters to Cheryl
Does marriage matter to you too? Please join Cheryl in signing the Freedom to Marry Pledge!
Marriage is the ultimate expression of commitment and responsibility to the person you love. It says "we're family" in a way that no other word can -- and there are many ways that only marriage can allow you protect and care for the people you love.
By signing this pledge, I am joining the thousands of Oregonians who support extending civil marriage to committed gay and lesbian couples.
I pledge to talk with friends and family about why marriage matters to all of us.
I think that marriage provides the framework for a civil and decent society. The commitment to love, honor, and cherish another person. To actually hold that loved one's well-being above your own provides a base, and an example of the most selfless kind of life and kindness we as human beings are capable of. As a civil and decent society, we are obligated to grand the chance to marry to all humans, not just some.
