The fact is, when no-fault divorce was extended across the country, divorce skyrocketed. Quickly the rate of couples living together outside of marriage also shot up. Moreover, single parenthood also has become nearly as common as heterosexual parenthood.
In other words, when we diluted marriage by ignoring the consideration of children, marriage has become a cheap, disposable option. In every aspect of social measurement, the result has been devastating for everyone.
Now gays are demanding we totally remove the consideration of children. Rizzo is right. Monogamy and marriage will only accelerate in their demise.
Sad and stupid.
EXACTLY! Finally a ray of reason. Bravo

You know why so many Glendora, California politicans and their friends hate " TOPIX.COM , right?

Things get said here that nobody else will print.

The truth is their worst enemy, and that is what you get here.

But then you get nasty posting blogers who rant and rave, threated posters etc. typical Glendora Racists etc.

The Glendora Police Department knows who they are bu they are told by City Hall officials and City Council member's not to stop them from posting threatening messages.

You bet, buddy.
History has shown this: given enough momentum, a rights-activism movement in America cannot be stopped (i.e. racial equality, gender equality, the American revolution...)
Everyone has a purpose. That's what sets the two sides of this debate apart; one side's extreme is shown to consistently show more faith in human capability than the other.
And it ain't your side, if I may resort to briefly using Texan slang.
It's not my fault you are a bigot.

BTW, what is my side? We all know you can't answer that question.

No, that's not it.

It's because it used to be believed that procreation between close relatives causes medical problems in the offspring.

This had proven to be greatly exaggerated and mostly false.

But the old law remains.

Try and get unstuck from stupid fruitcake.

Interesting, so you aren't for equal right's? I figured since you have claimed the moral high ground you would be.

But that's OK, bigot.

Buy many disposable bags soonest. We have them on sale. Immediately when your dollar devalues you will want to sell them back but we will be only be able to offer a fraction of the money you have invested. We love a bargain and your stoopid sequester guarantees that all of Afrika will be able to buy you out cheap when the tumble of your economy has ended. Great plan. Haaaagh!

Like Pietro succinctly put it, what's good for the gay goose is not good for the poly gander.

Please indicate how property disbursement will be allocated in a poly marriage where a man has say 4 wives.
wife # 1 , married 15 years, 5 children
wife #2, married 10 years, 4 children
wife #3 Married, 5 years,3 children
wife # 4 married 1 year, 1 child
The husband wishes to divorce wife #1. Will she get the house, and a bulk of his assets? How will that be fair to the 3 remaining wives.
He wants to divorce all 4, how will the property be split, will it be based on duration of each marriage.
The husband dies, at that point all 4 are widows, tell me Frank who will receive his social security, for the children, will each of them receive the same?
As you can see same sex marriages will not affect any standing laws.
Last I checked, the difficulty of applying equality wasn't a litmus test for granting it.

The indictment says that two of the six victims were allegedly assaulted on more than one occasion.

The 37-year-old Alvarez faces charges of rape, sodomy, oral copulation and kidnapping for crimes that occurred between Oct. 1, 2011 and Sept. 23, 2012, according to the indictment.

I call bullsh!t. I don't use anti gay epithets Miss Thing. Maybe you sense my contempt for you, but it's not because you're gay.
I have friends and family I love dearly that are homosexuals bla bla bla.
It's a NY thing. You're from Joisey. You never heard someone call another "fruitcake" or fruitloops"? It has no sexuality connotation. You have a huge chip on your shoulder.
If it has any meaning beyond "dude" or etc. It means you're crazy. Nuttier than a fruitcake.
Having said that fruitloops, Screw off you miserable old malcontent hypocrite. Glad it makes you angry.
Hope that helps.
Makes me angry? hahahahaahahahha Yeah, right..... you have the power to "make me" angry.... That's a good one, for a bullshit artist. I can't believe you even tried to claim fruitcake and fruitloops are not anti-gay epithets. You lie so often you can't tell the difference any more.
