This is what equality looks like: a just-released memo from the Office of Personnel Management granting equal benefits to all federal employees, ending the marital exclusion system that granted health insurance, life insurance and survivor's benefits and legions of federally protected rights to some -- not all -- marriages.
Even while I'm reassuring my son this is a win, doubt whispers, "Really? This is it? What's the catch?" My marriage rights have been toyed with so many times over the past nine years, it's hard to believe someone won't pop up yelling, "Ha! Just kidding!" and send us back to the ballot box to start the fight again.
