of adopting couples in a world with 4 plus million orphans.

What you avoid addressing is that marriage entails the healthiest setting BY FAR for most children. It is the fundamental and natural setting of societies relationships, INCLUDING EVERY SINGLE HOMOSEXUAL!
That fact alone distinguishes marriage from any other relationship and establishes unique rights and protections that no other relationship deserves.
