For Couple in Illinois Marriage Equality Lawsuit, It's All About the Children
When the 7-year-old daughter of Theresa Volpe and Mercedes Santos, of Chicago, had to explain to her grade-school classmates, as part of a presentation on student families, that her parents were joined in a civil union, she found the task difficult, to say, the least; not withstanding that many adults don't understand exactly what they are either.

And, on Tuesday evening, Volpe and Santos appeared as part of a joint presentation sponsored by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois and Lambda Legal at the Center on Halsted to show the very human side of the same-sex marriage debate, one of the more prominent of the social and political bot-button issues facing, not only American society, in general, but also the political platforms of the two presidential candidates, incumbent Barack Obama, and his de facto Republican challenger, Mitt Romney.
