I met my partner while in the US in 2006. We got married in Ottawa in 2008 and finally moved to Canada in 2009. I am extremely thankful that we had a country to go to just north of the border. It is sad that people in the US are still this backward and ignorant. I am glad I left and just renounced my US citizenship last month. Canada is a country that actually does what the US Constitution aims to do but has still not carried out.
