However there is a cultural, social, historical, and religious expectation of mating within marriage. Let's. OT forget the legal marital presumption of paternity.<quoted text>
Bwah ha ha ha haha!! People can and do mate without marriage. They were able to do so for eons before the institution was even invented. And they continue to do so to this day. The institution of marriage has NO requirements related to mating. NONE.
Unless, the missus doesn't get her period, then it about mating. Many a marriage resulted from a missing period.At the most basic essence, marriage is about maintaining property and inheritance. Period.
Is sex a requirement, the coital kind, not crossing swords?Thank you for your ridiculous link. But since mating is not a requirement of marriage I'll skip it as being as completely irrelevant as your posts.
It's about the definition of marriage in the state of California.You seem to be under the impression this string is about mating. It isn't.
Awwwww....that's so cute Jonah the Glibtee Whale....is trying to convince us that mating and marriage are not linked or even remotely connected. Next thing he'll try and convince us that sex between men and women doesn't make babies. Maybe the stork brought him....no wait...too bland....I know a brightly colored parrot...yeah that makes sense.What needs to be countered? Your view of mating habits? LOL! The subject of this string is marriage, not mating. Mating habits are completely irrelevant to the topic.
What else you got?
