Fellow Republicans, make same-sex marriage the law of the land

In the seven-year period between today and the 2015 Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges that recognized marriage equality, more than 1 million gay and lesbian Americans have exercised their freedom by marrying and forming families.

The ability to marry, raise a family and build a life with the person you love is one of the most fundamental rights that exists. Families are the mainspring of love and happiness in our lives. As Republicans, we recognize that the freedom to marry is not just consistent with, but also advances, conservative ideals and honored American traditions. With our emphasis on the importance of stable families to a stable society, and on government restraint in our personal affairs, Republicans should support the present status quo millions of families and loving couples in every state across America have come to rely upon.
