Every single state, prior to 2004, defined marriage as a conjugal union, a joining of a man and woman, as husband and wife. Since that time several states have rejected conjugality, as the basis for marriage in that particular state. Change in meaning<quoted text>no, no, no...
you again do not understand the words you are using. spouse is not restricted ot husband and wife, nor is conjugality.
Sigh.....Woody.....false understanding of "conjugal" as it relates to marriage, the legally recognized union of husband and wife, valid in all fifty states? Ooooooooh.....you're trying do hard to stretch the meaning of words to make every thing the same, as if there's no difference at all between a union of husband and wife, and that of same sex spouses for life. Even among the latter, there's different dynamics between the sexes.your argument is based on a false understanding of the words you are using, thus your conclusions from it are incorrect.
end of story, conjugality is not being rejected or jettisoned in any way.
Have those states rejected the conjugal, husband and wife, model of marriage as the SOLE legal understanding of marriage? Yes or no?
