Imagine Person A of your OTP giving child birth and squeezing the life out of Person B’s hand and Person B is moving in all different directions desperately trying to release Person A’s grip as they keep chanting sweet words to Person A.
Rep. Greg Harris, the chief sponsor of a bill to legalize marriage equality in the state of Illinois, says he is ready to call for a House vote on the bill to pass it before the end of May. He says he’s confident it will pass.
“When I put it up on the board, it’s going to go up to win,” Harris said, adding that he would “absolutely” call for a vote on the measure before spring session ends May 31.
“This issue is at the front and center of virtually every conversation going on in Springfield,” Harris said.
Harris declined to offer a specific date for the vote or a count on the roll call. The bill needs 60 votes to pass the House. It has already cleared the Senate.
“Marriage is perhaps the greatest and most challenging adventure in human relationships. No ceremony can create your marriage; only you can do that. Through love and patience, believing in one another, supporting one another, learning to forgive, and learning to appreciate your differences. By making the important things matter, and letting everything else go.”
