    I believe in marriage

    and would like to get married but my partner doesn't believe in it. I love him and he says he loves me too. I feel like I have to leave him because of it but I'm not sure what to do. Has anyone been through something similar?

    You keep using the words 'Gay'

    and 'Marriage' together, as though they represent something... this confuses me. Stop it. No... really. You tell me that you support 'Gay Marriage' I'm just not sure I understand what that is... the word is a contradiction. You don't believe me then? Maybe... I can explain...

    Society seems to accept cheating more than our decision for an open marriage. I hate that it's so taboo that I have to hide in order to not be horribly judged by most.
