If the Irish as a nation introduce marriage equality, the country will have the distinction of being the first in the world to do so by popular vote. This is a historic opportunity for Irish people and for the nation, possibly leading the way for human rights issues around the globe by starting at home.
This referendum is not about anything more than equal rights for individuals regardless of their gender. Individuals already have the right to adopt in Ireland. It is about having the right to stand together as a couple, pledge love to one another in front of family and friends, to exchange vows and be recognised under Irish law with equal obligations, rights and protections offered to all citizens.
