Melanie Lynskey knocked off Charlie overseas but she kept him on the right track. Only after she married him, aka Mrs. Harper.

Could someone, a SSMer, please explain where do we, as a society, draw the line, in defining marriage? At what point, does it become pointless?

Monogamous conjugal marriage proponents advocate maintaining the legal definition of marriage as a union of husband and wife.

SSM proponents advocate defining marriage as a union of (two) spouses for life, regardless of gender composition.

Plural conjugal marriage practitioners advocate for the inclusion of plural marriage in the legal definition.

Polyamorists, incest.....

Where is the line drawn?

1. You mean you have no defense.
2. I'd say there is homosexual pedophilia and heterosexual pedophilia. I also think there are homosexuals and heterosexuals who take advantage of minors. To deny either of those facts is to leave children vulnerable. You do so to excuse homosexuals. Despicable.

1.) There is no response to your continued madness.
2.) I challenge you to find a code or statute in any state; any jurisdiction where homosexual, bisexual, or heterosexual pedophilia is listed as separate offenses. I'm sure you'll find that all types of pedophilia falls under one listing.
No defense to both points.

Good question.

Any line at that point would be discriminatory.

Gays will get there way because people are tired of winning for America then having some judge over turn it. We are a declining country and its just a matter of time before we go under. Im personally to beat up to give a darn anymore.

<quoted text>YES IT IS!!!!!! Other wise why would it matter who married who. C'mon Jared, think about it. Marriage, not individual ones, but the institution is about the sexes, what they do, have sex, and what that sex creates, little Jareds. That's why blood relatives, other than first cousins, are barred from marrying

[QUOTE]
It's about the rights and benefits that we are denied when we are in the same type of relationship as straight married couples.
"

You were married, had all those bennies, just like any other OPPOSITE SEX married couples. Let's not for get the mixed orientation OSCs.

[QUOTE]
. Medical benefits and rights of spouses, tax benefits, inheritance etc. 1,138 rights and benefits we are denied."

So u want a gov't Benny pkg with your same sex partner?
So what about couples that can't reproduce they shouldn't be allowed to be married? People shouldn't be allowed to use condoms or birth control. That's what you are saying its all about sex and reproducing?? So women are like the bitches at a puppy farm?

Questions: Is homosexuality more common in men than women? Is it less defined or rigid among women?
