Coalition Partners Release New Ad Highlighting Why Marriage Matters

Posted on August 21, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

A new educational television ad about why marriage matters to all Maine families will be broadcast statewide beginning today. The 30 second ad features Pat and Dan Lawson of Monroe, married thirty years, talking about why allowing same-sex couples to marry is important to their family.

The ad, expected to air into September, was developed through the Why Marriage Matters Maine Project, a broad network of organizations supporting the freedom to marry in Maine. It is being paid for by Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders.

“We have a set of twin sons. One’s gay and one’s straight,” Pat says in the ad.

“Marriage is a commitment that comes from your heart. If that person wasn’t there, you’re not going to be complete,” Dan says. “If my son finds someone that he’s in love with and wants to create a bond that’s going to last a lifetime, that’s marriage in my mind.”
