This makes me so sad. The violence against women is out of control. Now that Mom has been killed and Dad is in jail, who takes care of the children? Probably the grandparents or other 'ohana. God bless the family, especially the children. Rest in peace, young mom. A note to the newspaper: thanks for respecting the family's privacy by not releasing her name. Hawaii News Now was quick to release the names of the victim and her killer. At least give the grieving family time to let the `ohana know so they don't have to find out on the news. Shame on the tv station."the victim's identity has not been released at this time." That's what KHON says.

While I am wholeheartedly for marriage equality, your argument does nothing to help non-heteros in healthy, committed relationships obtain the right to marry. Domestic violence harms each gender, sexual orientation, economic situation, religion and ethnicity. Everyone likes to think domestic violence could never happen to them or anyone they know/love/respect but the opposite is very likely true.
