John F. Kennedy
Another argument, vaguer and even less persuasive, is that gay marriage somehow does harm to heterosexual marriage. I have yet to meet anyone who can explain to me what this means. In what way would allowing same-sex partners to marry diminish the marriages of heterosexual couples?
More marriages might survive if the partners realized that sometimes the better comes after the worse.

Brands, and their advertising partners, must wake up to this challenge and define themselves with clarity, consistency and authenticity.

So much business is based on the belief that we should do whatever we can within legal limits to make as much money as we can.
