and by the way, annulment requires one of the parties to desire a divorce, which places consummation of the marriage on equal footing with eating crackers in bed as grounds for a divorce<quoted text>
As I have stated, but you continue to ignore because it shows the mighty Big D is not infaliable, there is no legal requirement to consumate. But, you'll probably continue to rant on. Failure to consumate is grounds for an annulment in some states, or are you going to argue that is not the case?
I know people that will distort other's opinions because they are unwilling, or unable to engage in rational debate an discussion. Plese point out where I said anyone's marriage is illegal for failure to consumate. You've been up on that mountain way too long. Come down for a while, clear your head.
Not a requirement
I am willing to have a rational argument, no one on the other side of the issue has presented one yet
grounds for a divorce ( or annulment ) are NOT the same as requirements by the state to recognize someoneís marriage, you need to get that through your head before you continue.
To make an argument for a requirement means you would show how the state would refuse in the first place, to issue a license.
I know individuals that fought in Vietnam who donít have the use of the lower parts of their bodies, that married, the state granted them the license
That kills both the procreation and consummation arguments in one fell swoop, you want to attack our vets, please do so with a video camera running because we want that for You Tube
