Would You Attend Your Child's Gay Marriage?

Would You Attend Your Child's Commitment Ceremony?

Most parents dream of their child's wedding — the day that they hand him or her off to start a family of their own. They picture their daughter walking down the aisle or their son standing at attention. But, some moms and dads can't bring themselves to attend their offspring's union if it isn't what they envisioned.

It was wedded bliss for Kevin Walker and Scotty Wandell on the season finale of Brothers and Sisters and while the couple's commitment ceremony was thrown by Kevin's ecstatic mother, Nora, Scotty's parents refused to attend. Despite Kevin's heartfelt invitation, they could not come to terms with their son's gay marriage.

Would sexual preference keep you from your child's wedding?
