Love On the Scales of Justice

"The value of love will always be stronger than the value of hate."
Franklin D. Roosevelt

My illustration is about trying to quantify and weigh an abstraction like love. How can the law say that a couple's love isn't valid and in some way not equal to another couple's? We can try to weigh them on the scales, but in the end, it is futile, and it diminishes us. Anyone should be able to have their relationship legalized, if that's what they want.
