That's not what you claimed. You said the essence of marriage is a contract.<quoted text>
Of course it is troll
a legal contract, that is what a marriage certificate is, each person defines their own marriage on a personal level. Some relish one another, some put up with one another, some are partnerships, some are a oppression of one over the other, some are religious, some are not.
No marriages are dependent on what other people that feel different think of yours
Do you understand the idiocy of your constantly mentioning sterility when the ability or intent to have children has never been a requirement for a marriage?
Thank you for making mine
As utterly ridiculous as removing the natural fruit of a marriage.
