Marriage Matters to Suzanne
Does marriage matter to you too? Please join Suzanne 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 believe that ALL people should be allowed the rights and privleges provided to those who choose to be in a committed relationship for better AND and worse. Without that level of commitment where there is no easy way out, individuals don't have the ability to truly grow and reach their potential as adults. Intimate relationships that foster safety and respect help people get over their GREATEST fears.
