Well, gay people want to marry for every single reason that straight people do. Because we love our partners. Because we want security and protection for them, ourselves, our families. Because we want kids.

Thousands of gay couples are raising kids as I type. While not every straight married couple will have or want children, the same is true for gay married couples. But thousands do.

There isn't a single reason out of the thousands of reasons, good or bad, that straight folks marry for, that isn't shared by some gay couple out there.

to be honest, it's probably because they want the legal and financial rights awarded all married couples. Personally I think we should take away all financial benifits of marriage from everyone and see what happens. I know the only reason I'm legally marrying my fiance is because of the finanical benifits with the military. In our eyes we are already commited and "married" to each other.

But you have the right to do that. How would you feel if the government told you that it didn't care for your relationship, and you could not get those financial benefits, while everyone around you could?

I know I have the right to do that. If I didn't have that right I'd have the same opinion I have now. What a weird comment you made. I think you agree with my outlook but the fact you made the comment makes me wonder if I'm reading your post wrong....

Str8 people get married without having kids all the time. The initiating question is a homophobic troll by a disingenuous moron.

Incidentally, I would not want to get married.

Then you "thought" wrong. Only 1/3 of the rights, responsibilities, obligations, and protections afforded in "marriage" have anything to do with offspring and not one marriage law requires offspring to be desired to marry or remain married.

Every couple has their own reasons for marrying and no two couples are fully the same, no matter the gender makeup of the couple.

For the same 1049= rights associated with it, just like heterosexuals do.

Wrong. I'm Mormon, and I wanted to get sealed (enjoy ETERNAL marriage) to my wife so that we would not be separated at death. Because the act of homosexuality is an abomination in the sight of God, this blessing (obviously) is not afforded to homosexuals.
I'm anxious to see all the mockery and hate that responds to this post.

Why do breeders want to get married? 50% of marriages end in divorce....and THAT's more expensive than a fancy wedding.
There's no shame in shacking up.

I am happy to oblige with mockery:

If you are both wearing your magic underwear, won't that keep you together forever? Every last single Mormon I know has been married and divorced at least twice.

And no legitimate proof that any such marriage exists outside of mythology.

So, you resurrect a dead thread, use the old abomination attack against us, and then dare us to mock you.

Gotcha.
