Sure it does. If you asked the federal gov't if two people of the same sex were married, the official answer is "No, not according to federal law".<quoted text>
Actually, this is EXACTLY what I was referring to......it is a LEGAL MARRIAGE and just because some states and the federal government refuse to recognize it DOESN'T make it any less legal......and my guess is by June.....IT WILL HAVE FEDERAL RECOGNITION, RIGHTS, BENEFITS AND PRIVILEGES like any other legal marriage does......even if an individual State doesn't yet have to recognize it!!!
Actually and unfortunately......most states have NO-FAULT divorces.....so, infidelity is irrelevant grounds for divorce!!!
Frankly, if folks like you were really serious about the sanctity of Marriage......you'd fight harder to not make divorce so easy!!!
I agree with you about no-fault divorce 100%. Which is why I think the gov't should get out of the marriages completely if no-fault is going to remain in place. The contract has a cost to society but effectively no benefit since it has almost no power to keep that union intact.
But as I pointed out before, adding restrictions or taking away privileges is almost impossible in this country.
