Americans Should Be Able to Marry Whoever They Choose

(CNN) — One of the most important decisions a person can make in this life is who they choose to marry. It has certainly been my most important and best decision, as my wife, whose parents are first-generation immigrants from Mexico City, has had such an immensely positive impact on my life.

I have often wondered what would have happened if I had not been able to choose to marry her or to do so in the sacred religious edifice where we did, because of unjust laws that once restricted interracial marriage, or future changes to laws that could diminish the right to choose who and where and when we marry.It is something I've taken for granted, and it is essential for us to remember that these rights are as fragile as they are important.

Indeed, most Americans will never understand the trauma that interracial and LGBTQIA+ couples endure — from the sideways glances to the senseless slurs — even though our laws have been interpreted by courts to protect these marriages.
