I don't know why anyone would take the position that marriage is not associated with procreation unless they were trying to spin something.

Of course we don't, its all about husband and wife, everything stems from that. A husband and wife, who choose not to have children, or cannot have children, are just a valuable to society as those husbands and wives that do. They both reinforce the understanding of marriage as a conjugal union of husband and wife.
You need to catch up, it is also between same sex couples, legally recognized on the state and federal level, as legal a marriage as yours or mine.

Procreation is not a requirement
Sexual behavior is not a requirement
Type of sex acts are not specified

I donít know why someone would mention procreation as having anything to do with being able to marry, it isnít now, and never has been, at least not in this country.

I'd love to see you tell a judge that someday. "Your honor, I don't need to prove it, we already know and it is more fun to make fun that you are ignorant..."
Then you'd come flying out the courtroom door and land on your bony ass in the street!
I donít think of you as any kind of judge, you are about the last person I would have judge anything.

The people that did bring the other side up in front of a judge, ended up with the judges laughing at the argument.

Once you hate someone, everything they do is offensive. Like Big D is thinking "Look at that son-of-a-b!tch Frankie eating those crackers like he owns the place."

Because it's one of the main reasons marriage was invented. It's foolish to argue otherwise.

And it's dishonest to say someone said something they didn't.

They didn't laugh at the argument. They laughed at a joke about older people having kids. If the argument was laughable, it wouldn't have gone to the Supreme Court.

Well I have some interesting information for you that you are obviously ignorant of.

There are millions of people married who either cannot, or choose not to have children. Our government has not restricted marriage only to people who can or intend to have children. That isnít an opinion, that is a fact.

There has never been a law restricting people from marrying because of their ability or intent to have children or not.

It never has, and we are not about to vote in a new law so you can specifically exclude these people.

Here you go

you are implying and I will be happy to correct you

procreation is not now nor has ever been needed to obtain a marriage license, and has no place in any argument against same sex marriage.

Dance Frankie! Dance!

You can't even be honest about accusing me of troll behavior because I exposed a gay troll.
You live a lie, and you demand others join your deceit.

My guess, again, is that you won't face someone who is real. You'll only deal with this issue (as you do with most things) in the abstract.
You're not interested in reality.
I'll pay your gas to and from Knoxville (if you're still in Greeneville) to come to a gay men's discussion group, where you can address all of us in one room. We'd only be too happy to meet with you and hear your side.
Are you up for it?
Man up VV.

You are running from a lie. Face it, and then we can talk about meeting.

However, 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.

Big D is very frustrating when he starts lying. Which is often.

I find it hilarious that homosexuals keep talking about no 'requirement' for procreation.

Especially when marriage needs protection NOT to procreate, and gays need protection to HAVE sex!

LOL

Right now you are attempting to imply I believe procreation is a requirement of marriage. You are lying. You know I never said that. And you know that is not my position.
You stop bringing up procreation as a reason to defend your homophobic friends and I will stop calling you on it

"As legal a marriage as yours or mine"? Ya don't say. So the state has the same expectations of a same sex marriage as it does an opposite sex marriage, the same presumptions? It makes the same pronouncement, as in "By the power vested in me by the state, I now pronounce you husband and wife"?
Procreation is not a requirement
Sexual behavior is not a requirement
True
True
Type of sex acts are not specified
etc
Ahhhhhh.....therein lies the distinction, pun intended. As we already discussed, same sex couples, cannot, according to the legal definition in that state, "consumate" their marriage by the first act of sexual intercourse, also know as colitis. Thanks for playing though. But don't worry, u won't go home empty handed, we have a collectors set of "Big D" action figures.

The institution of marriage as a union of man and woman, uniquely involving the procreation and rearing of children within a family, is as old as the book of Genesis.ĒĖ Baker v. Nelson (Minn. 971) 191 N.W.2d 185, 186, appeal dismissed for want of a substantial federal question, 409 U.S. 810 (1972)
