Marriage and ss couples are clearly distinct relationships. Not equal.<quoted text>
Lots of straight folks don't like the idea of marriage, but we don't deny others the right to marry because if their opinions.
The nice thing is that even the naysayers can change their minds and marry at some point if their circumstances and beliefs change, or they can choose never to marry. Their choice, not mine, yours, or society's.
California is a done deal, and every marriage there is recognized by the federal government. That's not going to change.
It's about time you learned to accept it.
Imposing an imposter relationship on marriage will not gain you respect. It will simply garnish scorn.
