The only thing gays have to offer any concept of marriage enrichment is interrupting other's serious efforts with pornography and displaying/demonstrating various S&M sexual torture devices.

It's higher than that in the Netherlands, among gays. Give it time, you'll be leading in divorce here as well.

But we all know that many marriages last decades or a lifetime. Three pairs of my close family have each been married over 50 years, and my parents were married 40 years,

More misinformation passed off as fact, tsk, tsk, tsk. The crude divorce rate for the Netherlands is 43%. On average, 690 female couples marry each year, 100 divorce, roughly 15% and for male couples 610 marriages and only 45 divorces, roughly 8%. Guess who accounts for the vast majority of that 43%.

You have obviously NOT met a bonded gay couple
.
It would be an awesome experience for you; what with the angels singing and the contagious feeling of love and contentment permeating your spirit
.
You would never find the need to tell a lie again

Stop trying to confuse Wondering with facts. It's really way too much for his brain to process. If he ever bothers to try, he will probably melt down like HAL.

We all knew there would be bumps along the road to full equality, especially when dealing with religion & the military.
This has NOTHING to do with equality and EVERYTHING with the Ashkenazi/Khazars poisoning the well for their own supremacy. You're an idget.

No, it has to do with marriage, and benefits offered by the military to married couples. You seem a little confused.

So soldiers should accept some soldiers are more equal than others? Are you a facist? Sure seems so.
