    Marriage has had many definitions throughout history

    Jeff Jacoby ignores history by asserting that in most of America marriage means what it has always meant (“Gay marriage should be at the ballot box,” Op-ed, Nov. 14). Marriage has had many definitions throughout history, and the understanding of marriage that Jacoby thinks is eternal is a fairly recent one, and one that, even now, is not even close to being universal.
