It already is law (passed and signed).

Gay marriages will begin in Illinois on June 1st, 2014.

However, one lesbian couple was allowed to marry today because one of the two is dying. Its a beautiful story that you can find online...

So, effectively, it started today.

Yep. This thread is now pointless.

Time to move on to more current issues.

Your definitions of marriage do not matter, sweety. No one gives a phuck what you think. The only definition that matters is the state's, because they are the one who has ALL the authority in these matters. Marriage is a legal contract between two consenting adults that is filed with the state. They decide who and who is not eligible. Regardless of how much you whine and cry about it.
You are the equivalent of a three year old child screaming and bawling "it's not fair" when their parents decide something that they do not like. Too bad little guy, you don't get to make the rules. You're just an insignificant little tike. Leave it to those with more brains, wisdom and experience.
Oh honey, you give me way too much power. That is not my definition of marriage, it is as old as society and cross cultural.

And wow, what power you have! To declare that a relationship that has existed in every single society in human history is now redefined by a piece of paper.

I'm just trying to understand why a ss couple is STILL only ever a mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage?

Snicker.

"The earliest form of marriage was believed to be ‘group marriage’. The union was basically between groups of men and women, and there exists shared sexual relations. The group marriage allowed polyandry, and this existed in Ceylon, India, and Tibet many years ago."
"Studies revealed that relationships between the same sexes have enjoyed freedom, especially in greater parts of Egypt and Mesopotamia. There was even a tomb for a gay couple which means that the kingdom recognized such union. However, such practice was more common in Mesopotamia. The Code of Hammurabi did not restrict same-sex marriage although marriages were well-regulated during such time.
There were cited examples of gay marriages during the classical antiquity. Even Plato was able to describe homosexual attractions in his work entitled ‘Symposium’. In Greek artworks, same-sex interactions were also depicted with equal status as men-women relationships. However, not all states or countries approved of such relationships or rituals. "
"As Christianity became popular in Rome, the attitude towards gay marriage and relationships also changed. During the 4th century, a law was passed to punish anyone who entered into gay marriage. "
So in other words, it wasn't until the fourth Century with the rise in power of the Catholic Church that gay marriage became taboo.
Checkmate, sweetheart.
LOL, I noticed one problem. Not one single foot note to verify the information.

Moreover, it gives the exact year the first marriage occurred! Really...

Interesting that you would use the Greeks as a source that can be verified. Here are the details; Soldiers would take young boys to satisfy their needs while away from their wives. We call that pedophilia today. Moreover, when those boys reached maturity, they would change their orientation and marry women. Is that what you are calling marriage?

Perhaps you would like to use the Indian berdaches?

Smirk.

Amongst the Romans, there were instances of same-sex marriages being performed, as evidenced by emperors Nero and Elagabalus,who both supposedly married men, and by its outlaw in 342 AD in the Theodosian Code, but the exact intent of the law and its relation to social practice is unclear, as only a few examples of same-sex marriage in that culture exist.
So gay marriage wasn't something prohibited until the Theodosian code of 342.
Yes, Nero declared himself married twice. No law legalized any such union, and his peers mocked him for it...

Ask yourself this question. Why, in ALL of human history, apart from ANY religion or culture, homosexual marriage has never been accepted in a single culture from start to finish?

Even though there are extremely rare and brief glimpses, it has never established itself and spread. Can't make a bigoted blame on the Catholic Church, can you?

Snicker.

Ah, the gay logic; If it's not hate, it's a hateful repressed gay.

Kind of gives gays a bad rap, don't you think...

By the way, do you know why I am a monster mutation? It just might be worse than your accusation...

At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

ss couples are a defective failure of mating behavior making ss marriage an oxymoron.

Real marriage has always been and will always be a committed relationship between one man and one woman. Demanding it ain't so doesn't make it so.

It is the only relationship that reproduces naturally, a father and mother raising their children.

It is the only relationship that is the birthing place of every single other type of relationship.

It is the only relationship that reunites two completely unique parts. A complimentary union, instead of a duplicated half.

It is the only relationship that sexually fit together by design. There is no abusive violation of design.

It is the only relationship that restores a male and female to the very original roots of our creation, pre-gender.

It is the only union that blends two different genders bringing perfect balance. A same gender union lacks diversity and is off balance.

All this says nothing about the cultural, historic and religious distinctions that marriage wholly embraces.

It clearly has, needs and deserves a special and unique definition. It is absurd and sacrilegious to equate ss couples.

In all honesty, those pieces of paper need a disclaimer;

"Impotent duplicate gendered halves of marriage."

That would be the honest and fair way so you don't dilute real marriage so devastatingly!
