If you are an adult, you lived in a time when gay marriage was not the law of the land. Beginning even before the protests at the Stonewall bar, LGBT Americans fought for equal protection under the law. After years of hard work, the U.S. Supreme Court held that same-sex couples have a fundamental right to marry.
Whether you went to the courthouse or had a huge ceremony with family and friends, your marriage was a special day. Perhaps, given the struggles of the LGBT community, your nuptials were even more meaningful than they are for heterosexual couples. As such, if your marriage is heading for divorce, you may not only feel you have failed as a spouse, but also that you have let down the gay rights movement.
