I have two children, and my husband and I live in a small town in southern New Jersey.
He is an accountant and I am a teacher, but we also work a lot.
We have two kids, and we’ve been together since we were about 15 years old.
I’m the mother of two.
I am also an attorney.
But for a long time I have had a lot of doubts about what the law really means, or whether it is true at all.
And when I first started working with clients, it was hard to believe that, even in our 20s, I was even going to get to spend my life in the courtroom.
At first I thought, Well, if you know me, you know that I’m not that kind of person.
And so when I heard about the marriage equality movement, and all the people who were fighting for it, and how they could make this happen, it just seemed like a very logical way to make this change.
But then I started to see more and more cases, and I started realizing that not only was it very, very rare, but the court system in New Jersey is not as inclusive of people of color as it should be.
I’ve been on the bench and I have seen how many different kinds of people are there in the court.
And I’ve also seen how much more vulnerable and isolated the people in the justice system are.
So I began to think, Oh, my God, what am I doing wrong?
And then I realized I had to do something about it.
I had a good friend, a black woman, who was a judge, and she asked me to help her make the case for marriage equality.
I went to the court in New York, and the day after the Supreme Court’s ruling, I went in for my first interview with her.
I told her that I’d be there to represent her and her family, and that I was going to be there for the sake of my family and for the justice of the law.
She had a different story to tell, and then she went on to say that it was not her fault that her children were born out of wedlock.
She was told that her family was being discriminated against in this country and that she had to make a choice between her children and her husband.
And she had no choice.
I thought it was incredible.
But that day, I did not realize how deeply I had been misconstrued, and it changed everything.
That is not what marriage equality was all about.
The Supreme Court has not just been an ally in this fight for marriage freedom, it has also been a fierce opponent of what they have described as a “political correctness agenda.”
Marriage equality was a big deal in New Hampshire when it passed in 1996, when I was in my 20s.
We had a Republican governor and a Democratic legislature, and marriage equality passed because people felt that marriage equality would help families in the South, and they thought it would help the women in the country, and in fact, the Supreme Council for Constitutional Rights (SCRC), the court’s chief advocate for marriage, wrote a report about that very subject in 2002.
Marriage equality has always been the most important issue for the SCRC.
But I also know that it is not only a civil rights issue.
It is a constitutional issue.
And it is a political issue.
That’s what people want to hear, and for that reason, marriage equality has been the one issue that has been consistently in the news over the past 20 years.
It has been a huge, huge, important issue, and so the fact that people are seeing this, that people want a change, that the SCR has been very outspoken about it, has changed how people look at this issue.
We know from the SCRR report that the states that passed the most marriage equality measures have experienced the most dramatic declines in incarceration rates, as well as the lowest levels of teenage pregnancy rates.
We also know from studies that have shown that people of different ethnicities, women, people of all races, people with disabilities, and LGBT people all tend to be more supportive of marriage equality than people of their own race or their own sexual orientation.
So when people see that, they feel more comfortable with the idea of this being a civil right for all people, rather than just a right for white people.
So there is no question that marriage discrimination and racism have an impact on the lives of LGBT people in this nation, but marriage equality is not just a civil issue.
Marriage is also about love, and loving someone, whether you are a straight, gay, lesbian, or bisexual person, is the first and foremost of our values.
It means that you have the opportunity to be your best self.
It’s about having the strength and the support to be who you are.
And as we saw in the Supreme Judicial Court’s decision on marriage equality, that is not a right that can be taken away.
