1. I'm not trying to understand a ss relationship.<quoted text>
Have you ever been in love with someone who is the same gender? Have you ever developed a deep and intimate relationship with another man? How do you know anything about the depth of a same-gender relationship?
I don't pretend to know about your relationship. I "assume" that it's very similar to what other people experience in their long-term relationships. There are no different or unique dynamics.
Two people who love one another to a degree that they wish to spend eternity with one another; that's no different than if it's composed of same or opposite genders.
You don't get to tell other people what their truths are. You don't get to live in someone else's skin. You may think you know, but unless you're psychic, you're not going to know how people feel about the person they are with.
The bottom line is that people who are in same-gender relationships are satisfied. They are deeply satisfied. And that's all that counts.
If they are happy in the relationship that they are in, who are you to determine whether or not it meets your criteria for being authentic?
2. I'm not trying to change anyone's personal description of their relationship.
3. I'm not judging anyone's personal relationships.
I simply and accurately noted the reality of a core distinction between ss couples and marriage.
That has NOTHING to do with your statements above.
NOTHING you said changes the reality of what I wrote.
I'm simply pointing out that the reunion of a man and woman in marriage connects humanity with the very roots of their existence and, at the same time, reaches into the future with the next generation.
A ss couple just cannot equate to that depth of diversity in a heterosexual couple united as one, in anyway, shape or form.
The past and future joined by a man and woman into the present embarrassingly exposes the absolute barrenness of a ss couple.
It really makes it shameful to even speak of equating the two relationships.
You need to address the points I made, and not change the subject. Perhaps you need to just admit that these points ARE a profound difference between ss couples and marriage.
