Before we get into all that, we have asked how same sex couples being able to marry has harmed your marriage.<quoted text>
Exactly, both the wife AND husband are needed in the marriage.
The voters, twice, voted, for,this:
The Act added Section 308.5 of the Family Code, which read "Only marriage between a man and a woman is valid or recognized in California".
Obviously the voters were concerned by attempts to redefine the legal meaning of marriage. If your argument is what harm will come of allowing same sex intimate personal sexual relationships to be designated marriage, then by that same reasoning, polygamy should also be allowed. If the sole argument is what harm will it cause individual marriages, then there is no reason to bar polygamy, or even siblings from marrying.
Why not tell me what benefit did my marriage, or your marriage, or any other marriage, enjoy, by allowing SSM? Did it strengthen our collective commitment to marriage, the conjugal, husband and wife version? Di it foster the belief that men and women, and the products of their union, children, are important, and government recognizes this by privileging the union of man and woman as husband and wife? Or does it promote the idea at marriage is simply a way a person's personal intimate adult relationship is granted a governemnt's benefits package?
Please tell us Big D, where is the line drawn if at all? Why bother licensing marriage at all?
You have been asked this by a couple of people now... still waiting for an answer, or we can dispense with the entire "Same sex couples harm marriage" argument, as we have dispensed with the entire “marriage is all about procreation” arguments which have already been shown to be garbage.
The lawyers could not bring a single example, but you seem to claim to know more than the lawyers that have failed to defend prop 8 so tell us... how was your marriage harmed?
