Day of Dialogue X: Marriage: For Gays, for Straights, or for No One? Wednesday, October 10, 2012 10:10-11:05 a.m. Plaza Room West, Mack Student Center North Campus At a time when the United States is engaged in a political and cultural battle over gay marriage, this panel addresses one of the underlying issues: Should marriage as an institution be abolished? One school of thought argues that we should extend the protections and benefits of marriage to more groups in order to attain an egalitarian society. The other side contends that the way to achieve an egalitarian society involves abolishing civil marriage. Join us as we explore how our legal system dictates how intimate relationships should be lived and arranged by reference to the model of marriage.
