Fundamental principles of fairness and
justice demand that our society offer fair and just legal
protections to gay and lesbian spouses.
The Music City Couples Network, founded
in 2000, is an affiliate of
Couples-National Network which is comprised of thirteen local
affiliates across the country, exist to support healthy, loving
long-term relationships between same-sex couples. Any committed and
loving relationship between two human beings, is a rare and
precious gift, regardless of sexual
orientation. It requires a partnership of sensitivity and
selflessness, of warmth and humor, of wonder and beauty.
It is fundamental to personal growth. It
enables couples to face formidable challenges together with courage.
It enriches the spouses daily. It e empowers them to work for the
wellbeing of each other, their families and the community at large,
to accept the richness and diversity of every individual.
Americans ought to be free to live in
peace as they choose. The Federal government should not be telling
people how to live their private lives-and such an attempt to deny
citizens of Constitutionally-protected rights should most certainly
not be codified in the Constitution of the United States.
