Is Gay Marriage Messing With Your Gay Relationship?
Don’t let the Politics of “I Do” cool down what’s happening between the sheets and in your life!

The 2012 political season is in full swing. The first of three Presidential Debates, has faded into history like a bad one-night stand. Obama and Romney both had things to say, just ask the pundits, however, somebody (Romney) seems to have cleaned the sheets on Obama. That’s really neither here nor there. Or is it?

Besides the economy, jobs, foreign relations, healthcare, additional issues are steaming up the political buffet table that could get in the way of you and your amore maintaining your rights and dignity; and not because you got caught with your pants down with some rent-a-boy/girl. Subtly lying like a lady in wait are the controversial, thought-provoking, and hot topics of...

Gay marriage...is it a human right?

Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA)...will it be deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court or not?

Employment Non-Discrimination Act...which rights could be repealed under a Romney administration?

Add these concerns to your already full plate of career direction (or lack there of), keeping the sparks alive between your six-pack and his (How To Date A Gay Man), finding the balance between same-sex parenting and social life (6 Lessons I Learned By Talking to My Teenage Daughter), and you just might be saying, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn!” You may not, but then, what happens if gay marriage, becomes a reality across the nation? Will you find yourself losing your appetite when your honey turns to you at the dinner table and says, “Now that we can get married, when should we?”

Cough! Choke! Call the medics and start the Heimlich maneuver. For good measure have a bottle of Club Soda on hand to quickly rinse out the 2002 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon that just spilled onto your great grandmothers Fleur d’Andeol French lace tablecloth.

Reaction or Reality? Are you ready for Gay Marriage?
Whether you’ve dreaming since you were a little girl (or boy) of dressing up in a princess gown for your big fat gay wedding, or if the thought of walking down the aisle is an interesting appetizer yet to be tasted, there is an out-of-body experience that most gays and lesbians are not prepared for when the rubber meets the road in the pursuit of happily ever after. Is it exuberant happiness? Could it be a twist of “Save me from this madness”? Or, on the contraire, you find your inner voice number 26 saying, “See, I told you we should have talked about this. Now look at what’s happening, we’re getting roped in to a life long commitment.” Egads what is one to do?
