Marriage is a legal contract. It has nothing to do with evolutionary mating behavior. But then, you've been told that many times. Same sex couples' mating behavior is irrelevant to marriage. In fact, YOU are irrelevant to marriage. What you are is a pervert.
YOU are irrelevant.

Wake up you fool. There are way more perverts in the homosexual sector than any other. There are way too many homo's in the teaching field for example as YOU can not deny, Why is this? The homo cult is bad for America.

LOL,

Mating behavior is at the very root of marriage you idiot.

You were almost right about ss couples. They are irrelevant to marriage.

What a gay claim! The last thing straights think about when getting married is a 'legal contract'.

Go get a lawyer if you want a legal contract.

Most people have mated before getting married - and not just with the person they married. The root of marriage is something much more meaningful that mating. You are just flat-out-WRONG on this idea.

I'm sure you believe that running with a loose crowd. However, you make my point. We would be like most animals, mating with whoever, whenever were it not for marriage. Like it or not, the primary purpose of marriage is to maintain the contact between father, mother and child.

YOU, honey, are the one 'just flat-out-WRONG'.

Smirk smile.

How is that fair? Not everyone is a virgin prior to marriage, not everyone runs with the wrong crowd to lose it, you don't have to be Christian to be faithful to a spouse.
Didn't claim any of those things, did I?

I and every one else with a 3-digit IQ believes it. Please once and for all read and understand:
1) sex is not a requirement of marriage
2) marriage is not a requirement for sex
The fact that you are ENTIRELY UNABLE to get it right is pretty strong evidence of your challenged mental capacity.
And for the record, I feel blessed to 'run with the crowd' I associate it. Your immature attempt to insult them speaks for itself; sad really.

Um, hello? We humans are exactly like most animals, mating with whomever we choose, whenever we choose. Even the married ones... how can you be so naive? Denial much?

Not true, but you realize (don't you?!) that even if this statement were true it works for gay marriages as well. Unfortunately, this statement CANNOT possibly be true because it does not explain why the government feels any mandate whatsoever in defining or regulating marriage. Clearly the government sees a very different purpose for marriage and until they reliquish their claim regulatory rights over marriage, whatever that other purpose is will remain.

Smirk away and keep telling yourself whatever it is that you need to believe. If I may humbly suggest... posting the same trite message ad naseum does not improve your credibility. I know you completely disagree... really, I get it. But, try to pretend your are a lawyer and think about the topic from both sides. If you can see middle ground then you can see balance and at the very least you may find something new to discuss rather than simply copying and pasting your prior posts.

Us kids love the our Homosexual friends and the spaced out druggies too. Despite their tiny representation among the overall population, our Homosexual friends and the druggies are disproportionately represented in the Government controlled "news" media. Couldn't they quit trying to "get back" at Christian Russia's more enlightened Homosexual policies by stopping their "bad mouthing" long enough to report some of the Olympic games that are being hosted by our Russian non-Homosexual Christian friends? Even the lesbians are becoming annoyed.

LOL,

1. Where did I claim any of those things (Clearly a blonde 3 digit IQ...)?

2. Ah, there goes your crowd thinking again. The whole idea of marriage is fidelity. It's called adultery when you break the vow.

3. "We are dealing here with legislation which involves one of the basic civil rights of man. Marriage and procreation are fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race."- Skinner v Oklahoma

"Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival."- Loving v Virginia

"Our Court has not recognized a fundamental right to marry that departs in any respect from the right defined by the US Supreme Court in cases like Skinner which acknowledged that marriage is "fundamental to the very existence and survival of the [human] race" because it is the primary institution supporting procreation and child-rearing (316 US at 541; see also Zablocki, 434 US 374; Griswold, 381 US 479). The binary nature of marriage—its inclusion of one woman and one man—reflects the biological fact that human procreation cannot be accomplished without the genetic contribution of both a male and a female. Marriage creates a supportive environment for procreation to occur and the resulting offspring to be nurtured. Although plaintiffs suggest that the connection between procreation and marriage has become anachronistic because of scientific advances in assisted reproduction technology, the fact remains that the vast majority of children are conceived naturally through sexual contact between a woman and a man."- Hernandez v Robels

"It is an institution in the maintenance of which in its purity the public is deeply interested, for it is the foundation of the family and of society, without which there would be neither civilization nor progress. "- Maynard v Hill
