From Library Journal:

This aptly named book has a simple message: gay marriage for many people is not a theoretical issue but a real-life one. The ten stories included here take the issue out of the hands of politicians and invite the reader into the homes of real people. Some have married legally; others have had civil ceremonies or devised their own rituals. Some come from families that have always accepted them and their partners; others have families vowing never to speak to them again. Some relationships are of recent vintage, other couples have been together over 20 years before marrying. Some have children, others don't. United by shared love, each is a pioneer couple in the ongoing evolution of a traditional institution. For those seeking to become part of the legal battle, there is an appendix that lists resources. However, the most important point made is that there is no ideal marriage, just marriage.
