I dont see any point where someone else being able to marry will affect my marriage or what it means to me in any way whatsoever.<quoted text>
Common ground. You have your moments Big D. Grazie.
But at what point, does it become pointless, from a societal/state/commonly understood meaning? If marriage is applied to ANY adult personal consensual intimate relationship, it loses its meaning....or perhaps becomes meaningless.
I dont feel the need to cross every bridge today, hence I am not actually very interested in all the slippery slope garbage, it is meaningless, so lets stick to the issue at hand Same Sex marriage.
There are in fact 18,000 legally married same sex couples in California right now, over 100,000 nationally ( dont know the actual exact number )
Those couples being able to devote their lives to one another has not in any way harmed my marriage, in fact my wife and I have talked about this, and we think that being inclusive has actually made us feel stronger about marriage in general.
I realize that mentally to you, it has made it weaker, but I dont see that, the issue is in your head, not in reality. Legally ( which is all I look to the government for ) it is no different than it was before.
