LT. GOVERNOR NANCY WYMAN STATEMENT ON U.S. SUPREME COURT RULING ON MARRIAGE EQUALITY
"To violate the rights of a few is to violate the rights of all, and the Court's ruling simply ensures that the liberties promised in our Constitution are shared by everyone.
"This is also a family issue. There are many thousands of children in Connecticut and the nation right now being raised by same-sex couples, and denying their parents equality would deny them equality, as well.
"What is most important is that children are part of a loving, stable family, whether that is traditional, extended, single-parent, foster, adoptive or same-sex."
