  • Hard to watch with emotive issues

    I felt sick listening to the defendants arguments, especially as he claimed that the rights he was fighting for compared to those that same-sex couples and multi-racial couples had to fight for. It doesn't compare AT ALL. A homosexual man doesn't stop loving his partner when they hit a certain age, a black woman doesn't get turned off by a white man that she has loved for years simply because his body goes through changes associated with age. It was a great issue they explored and made me quite angry sitting here in my lounge room. It did seem to wrap up quite quickly, but I feel like the issues and the arguments will stay with me for a long time. And that's what I LOVE about this show. It makes me think and consider and sometimes questions our current morals and ethics that are being protected by the law ans when some should perhaps be changed.

    In this case, I firmly believe the law is STILL very correct.
