"The first state law defining marriage as a union between a man and woman was adopted by Maryland in 1973."

Marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Gay couples are a direct defective failure of the primary purpose of evolution. Literally 'unmarriage'.

Ahh I see they let you out again.

It doesn't matter if you're gay, straight, jew or gentile, Catholic or Protestant, Hindu, Sikh or Muslim, Buddhist Taoist Atheist or agnostic. Rock n' roll, R&B, funk, dance, electronica, jazz, country or western. Black, white Hispanic or Asian. This marriage proposal might make you cry.

And anyone who even SNIFFLES watching this can't deny they don't understand SAME SEX MARRIAGE isn't any different than what they see here in this AWESOME proposal (I love how he just kneels and waits for her answer, never says a word. I'm So Jealous)

It ain't the equipment any of us (gay or straight) want to commit to. It's the person INSIDE the body.

Have no problem with love or commitment or even contracts.

But none of that changes the distinction of marriage from all other friendships.

Inside or out, ss couples are ever only a duplicated half of marriage.

Explain what distinguishes a "real marriage" in your mind. Procreation? That makes a lot of Senior citizens marriages "fake marriages" And if you insist only a man and woman make a real marriage then explain how a gay man marrying a straight woman and not informing her isn't a fake marriage.

Many are now trying to make the claim that SSC are only marrying for the benefits. Odd that I don't see you complaining about marriages with pre-nups being nothing but fake marriages for benefits. And what about women who marry just so their children have a "father figure". Sounds like a marriage for benefits to me.

The reason gays and lesbians want marriage equality is because we want the same rights and benefits and responsibilities our government gave our parents. We marry for the same reason our parents and anyone else does.

I have explained the basic essence of marriage. You can't meet it, so you want to just ignore it.

Problem is, real marriages are practiced in every culture around the world. Have been for over 8000 years.

Moreover, there are always abuses of good things. That doesn't disqualify those that marry for the right reasons. Nor do those failures justify allowing violently duplicated half to claim identity. It is amazing that you are using people who abuse marriage to justify calling ss couples married...

So you are saying arranged marriage/polyandry/polygymy/ex ogamy/exchange of goods for bride/sister or daughter exchange/pubescent brides should all be the norm?

All of these currently-frowned-upon types of marrage have existed in various societies over the past 8000 years. Ever hear of Nero? Multiple times as both bride AND groom including groom to a pre-pubescent boy. There is at least one reference in medieval church documents to male/male marriage.

So to which of these particular 8000 years are you referring?

And are frowned upon. Not as much as ss couples, but still rare.

Nero claimed to be married two times. It was never legally recognized and he was mocked by his own political peers for it. You were saying...

Arranged marriage is more common today than not. In fact, studies have shown it creates the strongest and happiest marriages. Check it out.

Two names, claimed to both be male, pulled out of a little church in Spain. At the same time, two females were run out of Spain for claiming to be married. You calling that proof of what?

I'm referring to the incredibly vast majority in every culture that were a man and a woman. Still the case today.

In other words you see that your explanation of a "real marriage" is full of holes so you write another non response.

Got it. BTW you still have yet to explain how you know the fetus you absorbed in-utero was a lesbian.

We're done.

The over 50% worldwide divorce rate shows your "vast majority" for what it is. Fantasy on your part.

I thought we were 'done'.

Your statistic is wrong.

No-fault (easy) divorce brought about a devastating rise in divorce. That was the last time the government intervened in marriage...
