A love marriage is a union entered by two individuals entirely on the basis of love and mutual affection.
love marriages have spurred considerable social shifts by challenging notions of privilege. from the loving case, which struck down laws banning interracial marriages, to the more recent same-sex ruling that legalized same-sex marriage, marriage has been used as a tool to simultaneously highlight and undermine discrimination.
under the current administration, a violent hierarchy of human value has re-emerged, marginalizing and maligning a vulnerable group: immigrants.
we want to celebrate the power of love marriages as a rebuttal to current anti-immigration sentiment and policy.
at our dinners we hope to help love happen. we hope love marriages follow.
we know better but we hope this is kind of love, this kind love, saves us.
