They are not 'exactly the same in every way'.<quoted text>
You know, I just adore when you respond in this way. It only makes you seem more bizarre with each passing day.
At what point do I "lie".
You asked a question and I answered it.
Do you know of any pair of legal contracts that are exactly the same in every way, but are called by completely different names?
I listed several of numerous core differences.
To deny those differences,'husband and wife' was changed to partners. There is an attempt to deny the terms 'mother and father' also.
Moreover, you again dumb down marriage to a 'contract'? How romantic.
You know these things VV, but sell your soul to deny reality and pretend. The simplest thing in the world is to keep putting simple points of reality on the table and watch your gay twirl hissy fits squirm.
