Thanks for the long winded reply, Marriage is a bond for a reason.<quoted text>
Many gays are stressed out, as explained earlier, on account of being targeted by homophobes and due to their remaining in the closet for fear of being ostracized.
Sexual orientation is a non-issue.
The hook-up culture is common to all communities, everywhere.
Marriage doesn't tame one's innate sensual instincts.
Marriage is an obsolete custom and pretty much useless and a burden - marriage is more a sexual contract between couples that can be broken, damaged or corrupted as it so often happens in most cases.
Marriage is more a fad than anything meaningful.
If I feel the need for a companion, I'll rather enter a live-in relationship and if I am compatible with the person it could last a lifetime with no hassles.
Some of my friends are into live-in relationships and are happy for now.
Most of my married friends are unhappy with their partners and quite a few have divorced.
My own parents' marriage was a disaster and both passed away in great grief hating each other and my late sister's marriage to an Israeli engineer living in Canada also ended in disaster and tragedy.
Marriage as a "venerable" institution is dying out in progressive societies with Japan taking the lead in this matter. Europe and America are fast catching up.
I don't consider high levels of promiscuity a major issue since sexual permissiveness is a subjective phenomenon and so long as one takes precautions one can stay disease-free in body and sound in emotions and mind provided the person concerned is sufficiently resilient in mind-body to external influences ...
I consider the abnormalities arising in mind, body and behavior due to inbreeding, child/marital abuse, human trafficking, slavery, the excessively high rate of divorce among straight couples, widening socio-economic disparity leading to impoverishment of people, reckless destruction of the ecosystem, cruelty to animals, close nexus between governments, organized crime and terrorism, satanic rites involving human sacrifices, racial hatred, wars, destruction of nations, religious fanaticism and crime more damaging to individual and collectivity than gays showing relatively high levels of psychological stress.
See, ultimately, whatever be your lifestyle, success and happiness depend on how well you make intelligent and helpful choices with the capacities that you possess and how well you employ these personal resources in relation to your surroundings.
Children need stability , they need both mother and father to have normal lives.
You are making excuses for gays, doesn't change the fact that they aren't normal.
