    I am excited that my friends and family can get married if they would like to. We should all be equal in every way possible, now that there is marriage equality in Virginia, hopefully this will influence other states. Not everyone agrees with gay marriage, why do you even care? Not everyone’s views are the same, so we cannot force people to accommodate our individual beliefs. Of course some states are going to remain hostile towards the topic,but eventually every state will allow marriage equality.

    Virginia had the most difficuties to accept gay marriage. Base in my religion marriage should be between man and woman, but we are no body to judge other peoples belieft and rights. I am happy to hear about virginia accepting gay marriage and make it legally a law.

    i was estatic reading this article. Virginia was the 24th state to legalize gay marriage. That shows growth and America becoming more open minded to the equality of people. We are almost half way through america being 100% on board with gay marriage. The author is completely right, if you are opposed to gay marriage it is your right to believe what you want but who someone else’s love does not harm anyone and should not matter to you. Marriage is about who you love not what is “right” in societies eyes. Good job virginia in being the 24th state to opening oppurtunities for the LGBT community. <3

    To me not everyone goes by “TRADITION”. Many people just experience things or love things or a certain person enough to look over any resistance. I feel as if allowing people of the same sex to marry is a wonderful thing. People get tired of fighting for their happiness so words probably cannot explain how people that wanted same sex marriage for all this time feel.
