I had a very different blog post planned for today, but with the changes to marriage laws in the US this week, it is impossible for me not to say something on the topic of gay marriage. People in love are what fuel my business.

I am grateful first of all to live in Canada (Happy Canada Day!) where a gender-neutral definition of marriage came into place nation-wide in 2005. I am also grateful to live in a time of change. June 26, 2015 marks an incredible step forward for America and the World in gay human rights with the US Supreme Court ruling that same-sex couples are able to marry in 50 States.

In some circles the decision of the Supreme Court has sparked controversy but in many it has sparked celebration. Regardless of feelings towards the issue it has opened up conversation and triggered a movement of openness and widespread acceptance. Love is love and it is a wonderful that there will now be fewer objections as same-sex couples walk down the aisle.

Whether you choose the opposite sex or the same sex as your partner for life, the principles of marriage are thesame. Choose your partner wisely. Love each other passionately. Marry the person that you cannot imagine your life without. Your wedding will be a beautiful beginning to the rest of your lives together.
