Sexual intercourse, aka coitus. Serious VV, both genders are needed for that. Legal ssm doesn't suddenly change the meaning of such words.<quoted text>
Consummation - Noun - the completion of marriage by sexual intercourse.(I see nothing about genders listed here)
Are both genders listed on the license?'Nuff said.And "marriage" in states that recognize "marriage" between same-gender partners is called "marriage". It isn't called "same-gender marriage" or "same-sex marriage". The certificates and licenses for couples of the same gender are no different than the certificates and licenses for opposite gender couples.
Do I need to be crudely explicit here and speculate as to what ss sexual act, male and female, would substitute for coitus?With that in mind, the term "consummation", in those states that recognize marriage between couples of the same gender, would be complete once they have had sexual intercourse.
Did your Dad ever have "the talk" with you? If he had, I doubt you'd make a statement like that.I haven't seen any definition of "consummation" that indicates a penis must penetrate a vagina. As you know, even with heterosexual couples, "intercourse" can involve any number of acts.
I never said it would. Don't start acting like Big D, and claim I did. We've had a respectual discussion and debate here VV, capeesh!?Finally, consummation concerns are typically only used to annul marriages. If the couple doesn't consummate their marriage with sexual intercourse, it isn't like the government is going to bust down their door and force them to divorce one another.
