Well Brian, your second paragraph is a bit of a stretch. Without divorce, maybe folks would take their choice of spouse a bit more seriously. I can recall when divorce was a rare event. Now it seems to be the norm.<quoted text>Not even close, let's try again.
Divorce maintains the consensual nature of marriage.[Without divorce married spouses can't leave the marriage, they are forced to stay together. With divorce, married spouses can consent to end the marriage.]
I say, don't change marriage laws from the advice of people who don't understand marriage.[From the quote above, they don't have a clue.]
It's not as if there would be less divorce if the government recognized same sex marriages.[Many homosexual relationships are casual, without commitment. I doubt same sex marriage would lower the divorce rate and history is proving me right:]
Just because many homosexual relationships are casual doesn't mean we shouldn't bless the not so casual ones. If we're to let the casual nature of some relationships bear weight against all relationships, then we ought to just scrap marriage all together. I believe this is a bit more in line with AKpilot's line of thinking. More specifically, get the fed out of the marriage game completely.
Linking to a single divorce doesn't prove a thing either, Brian. Or shall I link to one heterosexual divorce to prove heterosexual marriages are a farce too?
