If for some reason you decide to look up the word marriage in the Oxford English Dictionary, you will come across a pleasant new surprise and definition. The world’s English-setting standard has decided to make a change to the meaning of the word marriage to include same-sex marriage. Currently the word is defined as a formal union of a man and a woman, typically as recognized by law, by which they become husband and wife, and continues with (In some jurisdictions) a union between partners of the same sex. Creators of the definition say they will monitor the changes in marriage over the next year. “We are constantly monitoring usage in this area in order to consider what revisions and updates we may need to make,” an Oxford University Press spokeswoman said.
