Am I Divorced or an Unwed Mom?

by Maggie Gallagher

Buzz feed is retailing a press release from Fred Karger questioning whether I am married.

Here’s my reaction. I’m married. I’m not divorced. But if I were divorced — or still an unwed mother — I’d still be entitled to oppose gay marriage.

So the “charge” is not a charge. If I were divorced or not married, I would say so. But whether you are divorced, never married, an unwed mom, or in a bad marriage or gay — you are still entitled to weigh in on the question of what marriage is, and whether gay marriage is a good idea.
