A monumental moment occurred in England and Wales this past Friday. Marriage between same-sex couples was officially recognized. Many politicians from different parties within the respective countries applauded the change in the law. British Prime Minister David Cameron said in an article published on the Pink News website that, “”It says we are a country that will continue to honor its proud traditions of respect, tolerance and equal worth.” I am incredibly happy for all of those who can now share vows with their significant others.
