From wedding rings, to wedding attire, to parties, hotel bookings, honeymoon tickets and vacation clothes. Name it, the gays and lesbians would surely do it.

From marriage certificates alone, the state thinks they could generate $539, 193 just from their own citizens.

Margaret Ruth is some psychic/ radio VJ who hosts a show called Radio From Hell on X96 an alternative radio station tells listeners to "assume that the person you are relating with is doing the best she can for that time and that situation. No matter what others are saying or doing, assume "he is giving me his best available at this moment," and you will start feeling better about relationships and other people instantly." Margaret says "Labeling other people's reactions to you as "good to me" or "bad to me" allows you to take everything someone does personally." Rather realize their best isn't good enough and move on.
