Wrong again kiddo... have you ever been right about anything, you would think it would happen occasionally by accident, a broken clock is right twice a day.

My marriage is fine, we are closing in on 25 years and quite happy :) Homosexuals getting married didnít hurt ours at all, I am somewhat surprised by folks that claim it did.

Their marriages must be terribly fragile

He's a real funny guy. I think it's really Winston. Judging by the lack of imagination and general dopiness.

Seriously R Hudson, in what way did the thousands upon thousands of legal gay marriages cheapen your marriage?

They didnít cheapen mine, they didnít cheapen any of my childrenís marriages either.( certainly not in cost for my daughters - chuckle )

But not in any way were they less because others could marry as well.

In what way did they cheapen yours?

By redefining marriage to include same sex couples we are playing with sexual and societal fire. Just as the entitlement state passes on the cost of our good intentions to our children and grandchildren - unsustainable dependency and debt -- so, too, same-sex marriage will pass along the consequences of our good intentions to our children and grandchildren

Morns with no real argument scream, "But what about the children!?".

It is not enough to mean well in life. One must also do well. And the two are frequently not the same thing.
There are reasons no moral thinker in history ever advocated same-sex marriage.
Prove it.
List every moral thinker in history, and every thing they advanced.
It's funny how you fundies will claim "you can't prove a negative" when people say there is no god, but you'll make statements like the above quote.

Straight up, Big D, no sarcasm.
My marriage was a declaration that I intended to take my wife and raise a family, according to old tradition and custom, going back thousands of years. This new redefinition allows a mockery of that declaration. It allows anyone with a desire to call another a "wife" or a "husband" to claim that title, in spite of the timeless nature of that cherished institution. Anyone can live together, that is a common type of relationship. A marriage is not. I feel that the ceremony is cheapened by lowering the bar.
Not all marriages need to be a clone of yours mind you. I know a woman that recently got married that is not capable of having children.... would you deny her marriage to her husband as well?

They are happy and content... and yet you seem to think their marriage is less.

I am starting to think it is your beliefs that may have cheapened your marriage, not others being able to marry.

Is your wife as hideous as you are? People tend to pair up with a partner of similar sexual market value, so you wife must be really revolting!
Damn!
And you are so selfish, why would people have to step around your feelings?

It reduces the sanctitity of your ceremony. It becomes something that any clowns in make-up and drag can participate in. Did it not declare something special about the relationship between you and you wife ? This redefining of marriage is about sexual gratification and financial gain.
LOL. Marriage has always been about sexual gratification and financial gain. You might try to cover up the facts with your romantic notions, but that doesn't change a thing.

Rock Hudson, quit trying to make your bigotry seem noble with your "sanctitity of the ceremony" crap.
You don't care about weddings held by Elvis impersonators in Vegas. You just hate gay people, why not admit it?

Your marriage declaration was a sham. When the donkey you married couldn't bear you a burro, you sent her off to the glue factory where she was made into cheap taco meat and mucilage.

I do understand, but I suspect that is again just your beliefs, I am not willing to allow you to define my life and adhere to me laws based on your personal beliefs. This is America, the land of the free.

How about the billions of Hindu marriages that believe in a multitude of Gods? Do you count them in your club? They have almost none of your beliefs.

I am glad we can speak as adults here, and I am not trying to run you down. But this claim that it hurts others marriages seems out of line to me.

My marriage was not hurt, none of my childrenís marriages were hurt, it didnít lessen the joy of my most recent daughters marriage that happened after tens of thousands of legal gay marriages had taken place, if yours was, I would like to know how. This isnít an idle point, this is what won the case to overturn this unconstitutional proposition

Your "club" is the Shell Station mensroom with the hole bored into the wall. No thanks. You're pretty disgusting, even for a homosexual.
