Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
Let’s protect marriage together.
Denmark legalized same-sex marriage in 1989. In ten years the marriage rate increased 10.7% and the divorce rate dropped 14%. In Norway, marriage up 12.8% and divorce went down 6%. In Sweden, marriage went up an astonishing 28.7% while divorce dropped 14%.

|Ten-year change in marriage rate||up 10.7%||up 12.8%||up 28.7%|
|Ten-year change in divorce rate||down 14%||down 6%||down 14%|
Anybody who says that same-sex marriage threatens heterosexual marriages is lying.
I wish you would help educate Californians about the facts surrounding marriage. Hate is taught, but so is fairness, compassion and freedom.
