THat's how i looked at them once I knew who the Odd Couple were (Late night reruns of Felix and Oscar).
They're no more a "couple" than a boy/girl combo of muppets on Sesame street. Just friends. THat's all they need to be.
You're too young to have watched the Odd Couple?(shakes head) I'm old.

I've tried to dumb it down for you all I could. Sorry if you're unable to grasp my meaning, but that's not really my fault.

Okay, enough of this. Weekend plans:

Supposed to go to a friends pool party tonight but now it's raining and I'm still pretty wore out from this week, so I think I'll just chill at home.

Saturday I'm going to my second cousin twice removed's wedding (is that right? My cousin's daughter. My mother's sister's daughter's daughter. Whatever, I was probably just invited cause they're shaking down whoever they can for money.) But I haven't seen a lot of those folks in a couple years, so it'll be good to play some catch up.

Sunday, the usual. Sing at church, volunteer at the soup kitchen, donate toys to the kids at the orphanage, then run a marathon.

Done with my class. I'm supposed to go to India to work with our offshore team soon, but that has been one delay after another.
Wow!
Sounds exotic. Be careful....the nation doesn't seem like it used to, eh?
I'm not brave enough to go to another country for too long, lol.

The last time I got that drunk and passed out, I fell asleep naked on my bed, perpendicular to how I SHOULD have been lying in it, left my contacts in, and left my dog outside (fenced yard in summer) all night. Not what I want someone else to see.
I knew a couple who was on a cruise. Got drunk. Went back to the cabin to get ready for dinner. Called guest services for an ironing board. Laid down to rest. Nekkid. And passed out. Woke up later in the pitch black darkness of their cabin. And proceeded to trip over the ironing board that had been delivered while they were passed out nekkid.

I could not care less if you married your sister. I would be as skeeved out as you would be over a gay marriage, but if you and your sister get down like that, it does not affect me in any way. Do whatever you want as long as you are harming no one else.

<quoted text>
"What marriage is" can be debated until hell freezes over, why do you think this is such an issue with pretty much equal amount of people on both sides? You want to define the rules to fit YOUR argument. That's okay, but the other side can't do the same thing?
Hypocrisy.
I'll be here all night. Feel free to come back if you have any valid arguments.
Society has a vested interest (look it up) in making sure that incestuous relationships between uber close relatives don't happen because they have the (high) potential to produce offspring who could become a drain on society. We can't keep people from breeding, even those that shouldn't, but there is a logical reason for that rule. Otherwise, yeah if you wanna marry your sister (which you mention a lot btw, is there something there cupcake?) go for it, because yeah, it doesn't affect me and I don't care.

Yes, society is so stupid as a whole that we are going to allow inanimate objects and animals to enter into contracts. Not in this country anyway. We have rules about someone (some ONE...i.e. PERSON) knowing what they are doing when they agree to a contract, hence the reasons why minor persons aren't allowed to do it. Could the rules change? I suppose, but really, it's so unlikely. I could do the math, if I was that interested, which I'm not, but I think the odds are infinitesimally small.

There is no debate what marriage is. It is a contract. Always has been.

Face it sparky I'm (and everyone else) right, you are wrong. You will never make anyone else see your POV (we had a meeting) because everyone else who isn't wearing a tin foil hat doesn't go off the rails on some conspiracy theory tangent about marrying their car.

Here's a novel idea. Worry about stuff that affects you and let everyone else live their lives the way that they, as competent adults, see fit.

None of your business.

Well, gee. We could say this about a LOT of types of people. Should society try to dictate who is allowed offspring?

I've gotten into my first FB fight and it's about that Ernie and Bert picture. The guy is being totally obtuse and I'm thankful that I have had some practice with that here.

If gays want to use Bert and Ernie to further their cause, we should applaud that decision. They're characters most people recognize. We all loved it when they pictured the Statue of Liberty and Blind Justice embraced in a soul kiss, right? This is no worse. Stop at nothing, I say!

Nope. But since its MY pug, I would not consent to such a thing. But feel free to marry your own pug. When you consummate the marriage, will you be in front or behind?

Of for fux sake try to get with the program will you? VERY close relatives have a GENETIC thing that cn lead to offspring with problems. It is correct hat lots of people have problems with offspring for numerous reasons and some should not be parents to begin with. HOWEVER, there is a definite possibility (can't remember the % off the top of my head, but it's pretty high) that a brother and sister will produce offspring with major issues, therefore since we know this going in (whereas we don't know it for everyone else) there are laws about a bro/sis "union." Plus, it's icky.

You know he'll be in front right? Or is that bottom? Whatever. <shrug>

I'm more interested in why he is so obsessed with marrying dogs and his sister.

Researchers are on the verge of mixing genetic material from three beings for in vitro fertilization to produce one kid. So maybe you can't marry them but you and your horse and your goat can someday procreate.

But we can't procreate until we've been sanctioned by God. So let us marry!
