The Meaning of Marriage

I believe marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman. EvolutionI have had occasion in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage, to believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the Constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage, or to the fundamental bedrock principle that it exists between a man and a woman, going back into the midst of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.

  1. An interesting thing for Clinton to say. Let’s hope that the institution of marriage is supported and upheld in the usa in a gracious way under the new president elect.

    1. Thanks for commenting. We can hope and pray but this statement was made a few years before and she has since “evolved”. Clinton’ definition is surprisingly accurate hence the point in comparison to what she says now.

      On Trump, who knows?!!
