Since Arizona began performing and recognizing same-sex marriages, Oct. 17, many couples have formally tied the long-awaited knot and the wedding bells continue to ring.

However, being able to say “I do” in one’s home state has already had an impact on so many lives – not just the individuals exchanging vows – including families that this legal right now protects.

Echo spoke to children of couples who have been married since the law changed, who married in another state and have now gained equal legal rights as well as couples who plan to eventually marry now that the option is available to them.

The children of these couples, who range in age from 3 to 22, were asked what marriage equality means to them, how the marriage or upcoming marriage of their parents has directly affected them, what parts they played in the wedding as well as their thoughts on marriage, love and family.
