So, there's never been an 80 year old rich codger marry a 20 year old blond knock-out?
There's never been an elderly couple marry, even though neither of them want or can have children?
There's never been a couple who has fallen in love and married with no intentions of having a child?
Why should these couples enjoy the rights and protections of marriage if same-gender couples can't?
Because they form a union comprised of both halves, male and female, of the human race. If a lesbian, or a bisexual woman married a man, that marriage would just as valid as the examples you listed. Marriage is about the sexes, what they do, have sex, the coital sexual intercourse kind, and what that sex produces, children, even ones who grow up to post on internet forums under the moniker, veryvermillion. There will always be some opposite sex couples who cannot, or choose not, to have sex, and/or children, that's life. However they do not change the concept of marriage as a male female union.

As usual you remain totally clueless! Mighty proud of you being on the Bedroom police force! Glad that you think it is any of your business as to what 2 consenting adults do in the privacy of their own bedrooms dandy Randy! There is good reason the the Supreme court overturned the sodomy laws or there would be 10's of thousands of straight people also being prosecuted along with gays moron! You think that would be right and just? it's really simple Randy,Mr. Bedroom police,the sodomy laws were overturned by the courts for the simple reason that it's none of your business nor is it none of my business what 2 people do in their bedrooms as long as no one is being hurt and it's as I stated between 2 consenting adults gay or straight! You remain the bigoted hater that you've always been,how about you stay out of my house and I'll stay out of yours! Idiot,how about you mind your own business,who knows maybe you like to watch? Is that it Randy? Are you a bedroom Voyeur,do you like to watch?
Why stop at two? I agree, what people do in their bedroom is their business, but when its brought into the public square, and is used to fundamentally alter the concept of marriage as a male female union, then it becomes everybody's business.

Bigfoot, the Constitution trumps traditions.
So, for the sake of discussion, if an amendment were added to the U.S. constitution defining marriage as a male female relationship, would that be unconstitutional, even though its part of the constitution?

Exacyly, and the people have every right to define marriage as a union of a man AND a woman, as they did in numerous state constitutional amendment votes.
they won’t last long, the tide has turned, the American dream of Justice, equality and freedom will ultimately win, and the tyranny of bigotry and ignorance will fall.

What is most interesting to me is how fast it is happening this time, as compared to history. They are falling so fast, and now that a majority of Americans are on the bandwagon in favor of freedom and equality, it will continue to accelerate.

It will still take some time, but historically this is very very fast.

But I have no doubts, love will defeat hate, right will defeat wrong, and justice will be done.

Skin color had no conflict with the basic essence of marriage; a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Duplicate gendered couples are not just an obvious distinction from diverse gendered couples, they are a direct defective conflict with the very basic purpose of evolution.

You have no argument for 'equal' rights. If you dumb down marriage to 'two people in a committed relationship', you immediately discriminate against other friendships and the number involved.

Smile.

Here it is again;

The differences between marriage with/without kids and gay couples?

An apple tree bearing fruit.
An apple tree not bearing fruit for some reason.
An walnut tree who never bears any fruit wanting to be a apple tree.
An walnut tree hanging apples on it's branches pretending to be a apple tree.

Even funnier?

The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!

Snicker.

Because they meet the minimum requirements for a marriage. They have all of the required equipment.

The pope was trying to tell us that this was all the fault of the scheme that he and sarah pallin discovered together after viewing those videos that the Kock boys showed them those long nights in Roma. Even so they managed to discover that the food chain has been innoculated with fake estrogen. This goo strain has caused women to grow beards, become large and dishevelled and exhibit 'roid rage symptomatology. Men have shown signs of sports apathy, lost hair, grown breasts and large butts and guts. Together the two groups have become easy targets for take over by the Morons from Outer Space who have enjoyed this decay of wit and critical thinking as the Morons took over the government(s). The pope and palin were going to deliver a joint homily exposing the matter and to propose a mass world wide electronic marriage of gays to lesbians and other popular televised whoopy events to save the planet from those distractions that have kept the Morons from Outer Space in place. His Holness' special friend told all to the curia and you know the rest. There were four cruise liners with over 3, 245 people aboard each that were sailing to save the pope and sarah. These have each been stopped at sea and held for gahstly chemical de-programming and fake estrogen wipes and then returned to ports from which they did not disembark.

You could be NUTZ or you could be right. That is a 50/50 chance that scares me plenty. WHAT CAN WE DO? The TEAPARTY knows and is the only party that does know and will stop all such from happening. This is because of all the regulations and taxation of the upper classes. They are upper classes and we are lower classes; the support level is the lower floor in buildings as in life. We must support the upper classes and it is only right that we pay a bit more to keep them. I dont know about the cruise ship stuff but it sounds strange but also maybe true?

Yayyyyyy....marriage equality for all....no more bigotry and ignorance. Jody thanks you. Don't forget the marmalade skies. Those too will appear.

Exactly who would've thought we'd have two reality shows featuring plural marriage families. I heard the Brown family even supports marriage equality for same sex couples.
It will still take some time, but historically this is very very fast.
But I have no doubts, love will defeat hate, right will defeat wrong, and justice will be done.
And everyone will live happily ever after. No more hate, war, crime, all because of legal gay marriage.

The supreme court will decide that Gays have the same rights as the rest of us.I would bet everything I own on that and I don't even have a dog in the fight.If you don't agree then you don't know anything about constitutional law
