Things change

Well, Victoria’s wedding is off:

Daddy, Alex doesn’t want to marry me anymore.

Really, sweetie? Who does he want to marry?

Henry [a classmate of theirs].

No kidding. Did he say why?

No.

Well, that’s OK, sweetie. You said he’d marry him if he didn’t be silly, remember? Now he and Henry can both be silly together.

Yeah. … Can boys get married?

You mean to each other?

Yeah.

No, it’s against the law. Boys can’t marry boys and girls can’t marry girls. Except that they sort of can in the state of Vermont.

Why not?

Well, a lot of religions, including ours, say that it’s wrong for boys to marry boys or girls to marry girls. They say boys can only marry girls and girls can only marry boys.

That’s not very nice.

Goodnight, sweetie.

Goodnight, Daddy.
