LOL,<quoted text>Yep. Distinct indeed. Marriage is the joining of two people in a legally binding contract whereby they become each other's legal next of kin. A same-sex couple is simply two people of the same gender. Make sense, KiMare. It's not that hard. "At their most basic essence", apples are distinct from brake drums, cats from turnips.
Yeah, that's why we get married, to become 'next of kin'.
This is where you go from 'marriage is a contract'???
Damn, homosexuals know so much about marriage!
