Say “Plus One” for marriage equality

Will 2014 be the year love wins in Wisconsin?

Seventeen U.S. states and the District of Columbia have already legalized same-sex marriage, with constitutional bans being challenged or overturned in additional states everyday.  And now, finally, Wisconsin might join the list!

ETpLR4e9On February 3, the ACLU of Wisconsin filed a federal lawsuit against the same-sex marriage ban in our state, which not only bans marriage equality, but penalizes out-of-state same-sex marriages as a crime punishable by up to nine months in prison and a $10,000 fine.  Read the cialis free sample ACLU press release here.

    My partner and I are from wi but we live in NJ . For family reasons we are moving back to wisconsin this may. We habe a 4 year old little boy. Before we had back to wisconsin we r heading to NYC to say I do in court. . I wish my home state would recognize our love for each other. Its scarey to know we could be fined our jailed once we move back. We love each other so we will do what we have to . The world should know that love is love just like family is family.

  3. I believe firmly in the right of marriage for all people – regardless of their sexual orientation. To deny marriage on the basis of sexual orientation is fundamentally wrong. Since a couple is not legally married until they apply for a government issued piece of paper, then to deny marriage to a couple is discrimination.
