Covers the legal issues that most people don't reallize. Good read. Got it on time. Got it at the right price. Got it in great condition. Who can ask for more?

The book makes an excellent case. It not only asks why not? it also explains why. I feel like sending this book out to all of my friends as an amazing resource during one of the most important civil rights struggles of recent times. It is hard to characterize gay couples struggling to be married as promiscuous opponents of civilized society.
