Some Facts about marriage in South Carolina
Real Marriage is...
...an institution for a man and a woman. Marriage is not genderless. It is a union of two different sexes, not just a union of two different people. Real marriage (a man & a woman) is not rooted in discrimination. It is rooted in common sense, for the common good. For marriage to flourish in our culture, it must be protected from redefinition; for if marriage can mean anything, it will mean nothing. [Note: If you disagree with this bedrock principle, please read no further. No marriage that violates the man-woman standard can be real.]
...best for children. While thousands of South Carolina single moms and dads earn their �SuperParent� wings every day, to raise healthy children who become productive citizens, there is but one gold standard for which we should strive as a society... that every child be reared by a loving mother and father.
�the ultimate solution for SC�s problems. Prisons fill, schools fail, and welfare rolls grow because of the breakdown of marriage & the home. Governments and charities have spent millions of dollars for decades treating symptoms. It is time for governments, churches, communities and businesses to come together to treat the cause.
...an intimate, healthy relationship. Real Marriage means communication, commitment, respect and selfless love. These are the keys to a healthy, happy, affair-proof life �til death do us part. Successful parenting and warm, enduring bonds with children comes from true intimacy in marriage.
...worth working at. Divorce and dissatisfaction can be avoided. A good marriage is worth the effort it requires, and organizations across South Carolina stand ready to help with proven programs and timeless wisdom.
...built on faith. Marriage is a God-designed institution predating constitutions, governments, and laws. Marriage works best when God is the foundation and central unifying presence.
...worth affirming November 7 and every day. The right vote on the Marriage Amendment is YES. The right vote for Marriage is YES. Keep it real in law on election day and make it real at home every day.
I commit to the principles of Real Marriage.

The Greatest Commandment
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

"Love is the fulfilling of the law."
8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
The law is fulfilled by love.
14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Thou shalt love thy
neighbour as thyself.
