You got a divorce. Did gay marriage have anything to do with it?

Why not let homosexuals have both same sex and opposite sex marriage at the same time; if marriage is good, then why limit marriage to two?

<quoted text>Same sex marriage is gender segregation marriage where before the 21st century, all marriage in every country at every time, has been gender integrated, gender diversity is better than gender apartheid marriage always.
Quit appealing to tradition, you moron, that's a logical fallacy.

Since we have sex abuse now, there's no reason to expect that wouldn't spread through same sex marriage. Keep marriage male/female to keep prison rape illegal.
Do you sit around thinking, "Wait! I think I can come up with something even stupider!" before you post? Well, that one would be hard to top!

It's a fairy take book and a political manifesto

Welcome to the 21st century.

Gays marrying opposite gender is a bad idea.
You can prove no connection between gay marriage and straight divorce. And I'm absolutely fine with poly marriage.

My husband and I do have sole custody of our children. Their birth mother visits at our request.

<quoted text>A 'short time', like the Bible's argument about Moses' interracial marriage? There are ancient arguments for interracial marriage but none for same sex marriage; let's think this through. Maybe novelty social policy is a form of consumerism we can't afford.
Remember, Loving v Virginia is US Supreme Court precedent for male/female marriage; had the Lovings been a same sex couple the court would have decided differently. Racial differences are too small and unimportant to matter in marriage, gender differences are essential for the survival of the human race.
Keep marriage male/female because gender segregation marriage brings a new standard to the perfect diversity, affirmative action and political correctness of one man/one woman marriage.
Very well then; fix this:

MarriaGe does not separate people. Apartheid and segregation are the act of separating. Marriage is the act of joining. They have no bearing on each other.

Your claim defies logic. Alot like these other logic-defying concepts:

Love the sinner; hate the sin.

Religion (a system of self imposed rules) sets you free.

Thou shalt not kill. Kill everybody who disagrees with you. Kill your daughter if she's not a virgin on her wedding night.

God is love. God is a jealous god.

God gives you free will. God will burn you in a lake of fire if you don't do what he says.
