MARRIAGE: Irony in absolutes

After reading “Wedding signals a sea change” (TNT, 8-13) on the front page, no matter what your opinion is about same-sex marriage, please turn to page 3 to read the article headlined, “$10,000 slaying alleged.”

The seventh and eighth paragraphs tell about a married couple’s relationship since May when “he fractured her eye socket and she got a no-contact order against him.”

Does anyone else see the irony in the absolute “one man, one woman” argument and the concern for the sanctity of marriage?
