Wrong. I have given the social science essence of marriage. That is why you have no defense for it.<quoted text>
You have been giving nothing but your personal about how a marriage is defined, but you dont have the power or authority to define others marriages, your opinion is worthless, no one cares what you think.
A marriage IS a legal contract, whether you comprehend that fact or not makes no difference to the fact.
No one has given you the authority to define other peoples marriages, just who do you think you are?
Same sex couples are as married as you or I are, nothing you say will change that fact.
All of the things I listed are unchangeable realities that distinguish between SS couples and marriage.
SS couples are clearly NOT the same as marriage.
