So why did you claim it did affect them, in the post I replied to before this one?<quoted text>
It doesn't. Marraige doesn't mean much anymore, anyway. Marraige isn't very popular these days and half of all marraiges end in divorce.
My marriage means a great deal to me, Ink - I just don't see how the marriage of any two OTHER consenting adults could diminish that, whether the other couple is of mixed race, or the same sex, or anything else, as long as they're consenting adults.
Marriage, like pregnancy, is personal. But if I benefit from marriage, and it's legal for me to marry whom I choose, why should same-sex couples be denied those benefits and that legality?
I really don't understand the problem people have with it. To my mind, protesting against 'gay marriage' would be like protesting against the guy behind me in line at Subway, because he ordered a different sandwich than I did.
