Oprah Believes Same Sex Marriage May Help HEAL The Divorce-Plagued Institution Of Marriage!

Now that twelve of the United States, as well as country's capital District of Columbia, allow gay couples to marry, more happily face updates to their old-fashioned laws.

So during an episode of Super Soul Sunday, goddess Oprah Winfrey and panelists Rev. Ed Bacon, author Elizabeth Lesser, and author Mark Nepo chime in on the subject to ask if this is a social revolution or a cultural shift. And what effect will it have on traditional marriage?

According to Rev. Bacon, only one:

"It's going to be enriched. I've never had a straight couple come to me and say, 'My marriage is in trouble because of a gay couple living next door.'"

And as Elizabeth so eloquently put it, "the institution of marriage is already in trouble, long before gays were getting married." Why yes, a few straight people here and there have kicked the value of marriage around time and time again with adultery and divorce. ;)

So Oprah replied:

"Maybe the gay people can help it!"

    If you aid and abet the gay community to remain in the closet they cannot be of help to anyone. They could in fact be part of a larger problem.

    The thing that will heal divorce, is for people to stop thinking that being married will either make them happy (when they aren't otherwise) or make the whole. If you're not a whole & complete person before you marry , the marriage is doomed anyway. & then of course you have some that want a child & think the other person is a meal ticket. Totally the wrong reason to marry. & totally pitiful when they try to make it work & end up unhappy & bitter. If you can't be comfortable in you're own skin w/o marriage you won't be with it. It really just gives you another room mate to deal with. Remember college & how much fun the other guy throwing his socks on the floor & eating all your food was?? Yeah like that , except they think they can also tell you when & where to go.
