Joe Biden signs Respect for Marriage Act

President Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act into law on Tuesday, providing protections for same-sex and interracial marriage under federal law. “Thank you to everyone on the hard-fought victory, generations in the making. It’s been a long road, but we got it done,” the president said at the White House. Watch his remarks.

I spent most of my adult life never really entertaining the thought of getting married because it was right that I did not enjoy. For years, it never crossed my mind that I could be legally joined to the person I fell in love with. In 2015, that all changed, and I have been looking forward to marrying my love ever since I proposed. 🙂
