Yes, I agree the double standard regarding marriage is quite hypocritical. Funny that the "Defense of Marriage" laws are always proposed and voted on by so many confirmed philanderers. :-)
I have enjoyed everyone's perspective on unconditional love. I continue to meditate on how I can live from a place of love and not from a transactional orientation of always expecting something in return. It's slowly dawning on me how I grew up in a context of "love scarcity," and how infinitely abundant the reality is.
