Marriage does in fact legally establish responsibilities for parents.
Are you asserting that religion doesn't expect parental responsibility???
The fact remains that the primary purpose of marriage is to promote and support family.
My 'definition' is simply a concise scientific statement as the article explains and you admitted.
The only thing obliterated is your character.
You don't get it. I don't agree that men must be roped into marriage in order to make them take care of their children. Can you show me in scripture where this discussed?

Like everything else you've written here, your definition is based on a THEORY. It hasn't been proven.

I LOVE that you base your definition of marriage on an opinion piece written by a "Yahoo contributor" who doesn't have expertise in marriage and family, anthropology, psychology, or any other science.

Way to dig for the truth.

Another shift to avoid facing the facts.

It was hardly an 'opinion piece'. Every position was referenced by exactly the qualifications you stated. I simply used her article as a concise explanation. You are welcome to check her references for validation.

However, notice how far we've gone from your claim that the essence of marriage was nonsensical?

Smile.

You should have seen the meltdown I elicited a couple of weeks ago, from VV, mate, it was hilarious. I'll bet if VV could have reached through the screen, I would have received such a pinch.
She seems almost violent today. Estrogen crazed, even. You should play nice.:)

She pieced together information taken from articles to come up with an opinion piece. It's the same as every high school student who has been assigned to write a term paper. Their work isn't "science". It's an argument (at best).

And once again, I am completely puzzled as to what the last paragraph you wrote means. "...notice how far we've gone from your claim that the essence of marriage was nonsensical."

What does that mean? Did I claim that marriage is nonsensical? Why am I here day after day arguing in favor of same-sex marriage if I think it's nonsensical?

YOU'RE the one who believes that the basic essence of marriage is to ensnare a man by a defenseless woman so that she can have a better chance to have her offspring cared for.

In your definition, men are a bunch of irresponsible, horny, jerks who MUST be tied to a woman via a legal contract so that he doesn't run off and impregnate half the state; leaving his families to fend for themselves.

Is that how you see your marriage?

To me, marriage is about love and commitment--monogamy--promisin g to be with one another for life regardless of what is thrown your way. It's about mutual respect. It's about attraction--physical and emotional.

That's my own personal definition of marriage.

But I'm realistic enough to understand that people get married for a variety of reasons.

You go right ahead and cling to your definition of marriage. My condolences to your wife...

You must be new around here. Don't you know what your fellow polyp busters do? Well, there's one who has the mental age of, oh, say 9, and the imbecile had "Fundamentalists = Blight on Society" as a tagline under its name and comic book avatard..

So I turned your kind's hypocritical juvenile sloganeering and turned it back on you, and now sit back and wait for the next dumb-ass, meaning you, of course, to come around and wail about Intolerance and Homophobia and Racism and whatever else you passe pussies want to throw out there.

Oh, the imbecile changed its tagline to something even more stupid, if you know the context.

Thanks for playing, and your consolation prize is a package of stool corn.

Still gay twirling.

-A term paper is judged by the validity of it's content and references, not because it is a 'term paper'.

Please, what information was misused?

-You pretend ignorance again regarding the essence of marriage, first ignoring the qualifying term 'essence' feigning confusion, but then adding it in the very next sentence. Obvious immaturity foolishly attempting to cover the lack of a logical response.

-I've never limited marriage to mating behavior, hence the term 'essence'. In fact, you attempt to hitchhike classic elements of marriage with notable exceptions; Ignoring the anal violence, and the mutually sterile, pointlessly duplicate gendered half of marriage.

Stand a ss couple next to a married couple. Looks silly stupid pretending they are the same, doesn't it.

It was only a few days ago that one of you complained that I only made drive-by comments. There's just no pleasing such a bunch.

Well, at least you admitted your commitment to duncehood.

Oh, silly me, I didn't understand that Sunshine's inability to sit still is because she's hungry. She was salivating to the point of dehydration because of the corn!

Sunshine, I haven't yet had my coffee,(which happens to be a wonderful bowel stimulant). If you can hold on a little longer, I'll soon have your breakfast.
