Person 2 Person: Being a Newlywed
Shauna Lake asks newlywed Adam Sklute what it's like to marry the person he loves.
SHAUNA LAKE: So I went on your Facebook page…
ADAM SKLUTE: Okay.
SHAUNA LAKE: You’re a newlywed.
ADAM SKLUTE: Yep.
SHAUNA LAKE: You got married. I want to ask you about that. I want to ask you what it feels like. You got married in New Hampshire, is that right?
ADAM SKLUTE: Yep, actually North Hampton.
SHAUNA LAKE: What did it feel like to marry the person you love, and do you feel that everybody deserves that right? Should be able to marry the person that they love?
ADAM SKLUTE: I think everyone should be able to marry the person that they love. I think that that is something that we are all destined to do and you know everyone has a different idea of what that partnership should be about, what that life should be about, and what their lives should be about, but ultimately isn’t it really about being true to yourself, being good to the community, and being upstanding citizens and together being able to move forward into this world and create a world that is built on love and not on hate.
SHAUNA LAKE: Do you feel progress? Do you feel some progression?
ADAM SKLUTE: Absolutely.
SHAUNA LAKE: Do you see a future where this isn’t even a conversation?
ADAM SKLUTE: I would hope that. But I will tell you I do see a world where this isn’t even a conversation because 20 years ago when I first got together with my spouse and after 20 years we thought oh this is going to be a nice thing we will do for our 20th anniversary. We didn’t even conceive of the possibility of getting married. I’m looking at the world today and so I’m hoping in 20 years that it’s a non-issue and that we can all just support one another in the world. Because as long as no one is hurting one another and as long as people are doing things that support this world and support one another I think that’s where we need to be open to that.
