Freedom to Marry: The Time is Now

Across Illinois, thousands of loving, committed couples and their families are being denied the freedom to marry. Every day that passes without the freedom to marry, those couples and their families are being harmed. They can be denied the opportunity to take time off of work to care for their ailing spouse; they face losing their home when their spouse dies.
More and more Illinoisans believe that same-sex couples should be able to marry, share a lifetime commitment, and care for their families through the stability of marriage.
Marriage means a lifelong commitment – a lifelong promise. It means shared responsibilities. It means taking care of the one you love. Polls clearly show that the majority of Illinois voters believe same-sex couples should have the freedom to enter into such a commitment. That majority gets bigger every day.
It is time for the Illinois House of Representatives to get on the right side of history and pass SB10. It’s time to stop excluding same-sex couples from marriage. Illinois families can’t wait. The time is now.
