NPR's special half-hour on gay marriage begins with NPR's Barbara Bradley Hagerty reporting on three generations of a family learning to accept its members' choices when it comes to marriage. Then, NPR's Robert Siegel speaks with Jennifer and Geoffrey Vaughn. The couple does not believe the definition of marriage can be changed.
The examination continues as NPR's Margot Adler explores the recent history of marriage and how that informs the debate on gay marriage.
Finally, commentator Heather Dune Macadam relates why she's given up on marriage — especially gay marriage.
