Oh, and as an addendum to my last post... This summer I AM going to marry my girlfriend. And guess what? My family is going to be there in support of us. Their support and acceptance is ALL I need. We don't need your acceptance to live our lives and be happy. Be expecting a twinge of pain sometime during this summer, then you will know it was my wedding day... LOL!!!!

Bullsh!t, you are Luke, and you couldn't believe that I was even who I said I am... so what is it? You said I am too hot to be who I said I am, and that had to be someone I paid to make the video... now you are saying I am abnormal? Don't tell me that you are not Luke... you post exactly like he does along with a few other names on here. I may not be drop dead gorgeous, but I definitely am not stupid.

Gay couples will never fulfill the core root of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay couples will never bring the unique product of uniting diverse genders.

Gay couples will never procreate or bring the balance of a mother and father to the child.

The list goes on.

You can create a legal contract called marriage, but that will be all it is. Shallow and far short of the full spectrum of real marriage.

Fake, pretend, imposter and counterfeit don't do your Frankenstein creation justice. Unmarriage is more like it.

Get back to me when you can match the basic essence of marriage.

Smile.

I think that two people being in love and wanting to make a commitment to spend the rest of their lives together is the basic essence of marriage... Like I said, just because you think it is icky doesn't mean you can use your opinion to withhold rights from other citizens.

You are talking about a friendship, not marriage. The reason marriage is a cross cultural constraint, is the power of evolutionary mating behavior.

I didn't say it was 'icky', you did. I said the doctor said anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

I said that to assume the rights of marriage, another relationship has to firs equate itself to the fundamental purpose of marriage.

No ss couple can ever claim the title of married. It is a violation of reality, hence simply denial.

I don't think romantic love can be classified as friendship, do you? I feel romantic love toward my girlfriend. I love her deeply and want to spend the rest of my life with her. That is not just mere "friendship". Denying two consenting adults the right to have a legal marriage is keeping them from having the same equal rights as other couples who are in love and want to spend their lives together. It isn't up to you to dictate if they can spend their lives together, because it doesn't affect you in any way. Prove to me that my marrying my gf will have a personal impact on your life. You can't do that, and when asked you just parrot the same stuff that has NOTHING to do with how it will personally affect you.

Interesting. Here is a quote from Mongrel Jonny Boy that follows yours;

" Seriously, love doesn't make a marriage...."

He simply acknowledges that love is involved in numerous committed relationships that are not marriage.

That brings us to sex, the primary goal of romantic behavior, scientifically known as mating behavior.

And that brings us to the basic essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

You have yet to present a rational, logical argument that equates gay unions with that essence of marriage. In fact, at this point, you only have a literal 'unmarriage'.

Just a heads up, you can spend your life with whoever you want. It just isn't marriage unless it is hetero.

Smile.

You are confused.

Your use of the term marriage means absolutely nothing in your partnership.

That is because of the reality I state about marriage. You know, the one you have no rational, logical argument against.

Snicker.

Further, as we speak, another state has enacted marriage equality, in spite of Kimare's opinions.

There's yet another state that forgot to check in with Kimare before taking a vote.

Again with your new phrases. So silly. Now, all you have to do is prove that gay couples legally marrying will cause straight people to mate irresponsibly.

And, of course, you also need to prove that procreation is a legal requirement for ANY marriage.

Good luck with those.

You can keep quoting that, Dear, and I know you like the sound of it, but it isn't logical unless you can prove that procreation is required for legal marriage, and that gay folks legally marrying will magically cause straight folks to mate even MORE irresponsibly that they already do.

Any luck on the research for that?

He can't come up with any reason beyond him not agreeing with it. I have asked him several times to tell me how me marrying my gf would affect his life in any way, and he has yet to tell me how it would. He can't answer that question so he just parrots the same crap, using words and phrases that he thinks make him look smart.
