Oh my GOSH! Enough with the evolution and reproduction already! We get it! You guys make babies! Big deal! Is that how you see your wife--a baby factory? Do you not love her? Do you not see her as a friend?<quoted text>
Why do haters of monogamous opposie sex marriage, ignore the fact that marriage is a sexual union of husband and wife?
Why do they feel compelled to blur the distinctions between different types of sexual behavior?
Yes they do, and that is understandable. However that doesn't all thing are equal, or serve the same function. Distinctions can be, and are made.
Marriage, at its core, in the larger sense, is a sexual union of a male and female. Granted there will always be some individual marriages that are not sexual, either by choice or physical obstacles, but that doesn't change the nature of marriage itself. Societies throughout human history have recognized this. That's why KiMare points to it a a constraint on evolutionary mating. Human reproduction is sexual. That's probably why SSM, despite some scattered historical examples, and the presence of same sex sexual behavior in various cultures, never truly took root,certainy not in western civilization. If it had, there'd be no need for this debate. SSM would have already developed, and would exist, alongside of both monogamous and polygamous opposite sex marriage.
Is she just supposed to spit out child after child for as long as her body is fertile?
I forget which comic said this, but it makes a good point... "It's a womb, not a clown car!"
There are over 7 BILLION people on this planet. As Judge Judy likes to point out to 19 year old girls who have 3 children and another on the way, "That's enough!"
Being married is not singularly about popping out children. Why is it that you guys do not understand this?
