Why do haters of monogamous opposie sex marriage, ignore the fact that marriage is a sexual union of husband and wife?<quoted text>
The real question is why do haters always digress to references of a sexual nature?
Why do they feel compelled to blur the distinctions between different types of sexual behavior?Why do they feel compelled to focus on what people do to express their love and affection for their lover?
Yes they do, and that is understandable. However that doesn't all thing are equal, or serve the same function. Distinctions can be, and are made.]
Dont they realize that regardless of sexual orientation we all have very diverse sexual desires and needs?
Marriage, at its core, in the larger sense, is a sexual union of a male and female. Granted there will always be some individual marriages that are not sexual, either by choice or physical obstacles, but that doesn't change the nature of marriage itself. Societies throughout human history have recognized this. That's why KiMare points to it a a constraint on evolutionary mating. Human reproduction is sexual. That's probably why SSM, despite some scattered historical examples, and the presence of same sex sexual behavior in various cultures, never truly took root,certainy not in western civilization. If it had, there'd be no need for this debate. SSM would have already developed, and would exist, alongside of both monogamous and polygamous opposite sex marriage.
