Because I currently don't have one. And if I did, it would need to be a meaningful relationship that we both wanted to become a life long commitment. I hope that answers your question, Rickie.

Look, I concede that you're also pretty lame, with grade school comebacks some kindergartners would roll their eyes at. Still, despite your Herculean efforts, you're just not able to joust with the big boys, and Rage Boi is current Queen.

Hey Kimare, still legally married here! Yes, we have duplicate genders, that's the way a SSM works.

The term "interracial marriage" is specific too, but that doesn't mean they're not the same as everyone else's marriage.
Besides, even you just admitted to saying that "they are called the same".
You noted, as I do, that ss couples are a duplicated gendered half of marriage.

Interracial marriage has been prevalent across human history with brief points of conflict. Ss couples being called married has never been accepted across the history of a single culture. Moreover, race differences don't affect the essence of mating behavior. SS couples are a defective failure of mating behavior.

I admitted no such thing. I simply quoted the SCOTUS assertion, and mocked it.

As long as the interracial marriage is the same form, one man and one woman, it is the same, form and function, as everybody else's.

What works???

Mating behavior sure doesn't.

Anal sex is still inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

You still have only the duplicate HALF of marriage.

The kids STILL will choose mom and dad.

Stamp your feet and repeat all you want, your relationship isn't marriage.

Oh you are the one that brought up acceptance, I am just letting you know that despite my opinion of your marriage, regardless of my acceptance of it, you are still married.

Same with them

And yes I see the difference between people whose lives are built on love and acceptance, and yours built upon hate.

I didn't bring up 'acceptance' or 'opinion'.

I simply point out obvious fundamental differences between ss couples and marriage.

There is nothing hateful about stating facts. If they were not the facts, you would point that out instead of making the 'hate' charge.

So obvious.

Yes, many things have been prevalent throughout history. Take slavery... Take war... Take gender inequality... Take racial and ethnic discrimination... Take genocide...

Do you also embrace these "timeless", social institutions and activities?

As I've often said, rather than simply doing the same thing over and over, we learn from the mistakes in the past to make our current society a better place.

More than anything I've seen over the past week, I would have LOVED to have seen your face with the Supreme Court decisions were handed down.

I'll bet it was priceless!

All of your personal attempts to sway folks. Your ridiculous and contrived definitions; your pitiful understanding of scientific processes; your absolute refusal to agree with facts... In one fell swoop, the justices handed you (and people like you) your ass on a platter.

An idiotic, obvious and poor attempt to distort what I said, while ignoring all the points.

Clearly no rational response to the argument.

Get real.

No... It's not an idiotic response. It's a perfectly reasonable observation.

If you believe that current marriage laws should be dictated by history, then maybe you think that other institutions and behaviors should also be supported by their almost constant presence in history.

You just don't agree with them because you realize how absurd it would be for you to try to support slavery, war, genocide, gender inequality, racial and ethnic inequality, etc.

But marriage inequality, you're willing to support that based on the history of marriage--even though you KNOW that marriage has never been the same in all cultures throughout history. Arranged marriage, plural marriage, same-gender marriage, interracial marriage, "ghost marriage", etc. are just a few of the many faces of marriage over the history of mankind.

It doesn't matter. Our Supreme Court Justices, having had all the facts argued before them by the best attorneys and legal teams in the country, came to the conclusion that it is unconstitutional to deny federal rights and protections to a married couple who happen to be comprised of same-gender individuals. They found it unconstitutional to deny benefits and protections to married, same-gender couples who have children.

And there you have it... The law is clearly on our side here. It's probably getting close to closing time around here on this particular thread.

The decision has been made. Your team lost. We were triumphant. The definition of marriage (of which there are many) now includes same-gender couples.
