Anyone can have children. You don't have to be in a monogamous, heterosexual relationship to have or raise kids. And you don't have to have kids to get married. Your statement doesn't make sense. And I feel the government should encourage gay marriage. It can only help gay people, and their families, and it hurts no one.
UNLESS......(sometimes it helps to put it down on paper).....If a homosexual child can be raised by a heterosexual couple without discrimination and do just fine......then I guess the reverse can be the same.

So....judging by what my own words say in all of my posts.....I am NOT God and it's MY job to find a way to not judge (even if I don't hate, I still should not question another's choices unless it takes away my right to do the same.

Ok! I just answered my own question........Thanks for the post!

I love being human .....it's humbling!

How does it not make sense? Societies have recognized and favored marriage, as either a monogamous union of husband and wife, or a polygamous union of husband and wives, for the obvious reason that sex between men and women makes babies. The American legal concept of marriage, which is rooted in English common law, is very simple. One man and one woman, of age, not currently married, and not closely related by blood.
The state benefits, as does society at large when men and women marry, and both sex, and conception take place within the marital relationship. Of course there's no legal requirement to marry first in order to have children or sex. Why would there need to be?
If gay marriage is such a help to gay people, why then do so few, that can marry, same sex, actually do? Why do more female couples marry than male? Why do male relationships tend to be less monogamous than female ones?
Societies have also recognized monogamous unions and polyandry within Mesopotamia, Greece, Rome, Japan, and many Native American cultures. And that's only in most states. Other states allow gays to marry. And of course there is no legal requirement for people to have kids, because marriage is more about stability than just having kids. Also, I don't know. I'm not gay. All I know is that it's unfair to deny marriage to people that want it simply based upon their sex.

I have no issue personally with any sexual orientation and their rights.
One thing I struggle with is the children part. Only reason, is that a child comes from a man and a woman. How does that affect a child who has been raised from birth in a homosexual household? Have they done studies on this? What is your take on this? BTW: i'm being sincere....thanks. Also, BTW: if I knew of a homosexual couple raising a child, I would not hate them or try to take away their rights. I would just still being mulling over whether or not it is healthy for a child. Anyway....

From what I've seen, studies show that kids under gays do fine. I also know a gay father. He's a great dad. Pretty much saved the kids from a like of Third World BS.

I don't know why he stresses procreation as the reason why the state sanctions marriage when procreation and marriage are two separate things that can totally exist without the other.

First, you need to define your terms. What do you mean by "so few?" And once you've defined that term, please provide your evidence that "so few" actually marry. I'm looking forward to debunking your arguments.

I've played this game with your type before. I'm not even going to try to play a game when I know you'll just keep moving the goal posts.

The Holy Bible has many commandments literally hundreds but none as plain as those on homosexuality being a sin.

Polyandry is relatively rare, and there are scattered historical examples of recognized samr sex union, although they weren't necessarily considered marriage.
And that's only in most states. Other states allow gays to marry.
Technically gays can marry, enter into a legally recognized union of husband and wife, in any state. No state requires a statement of sexual orientation prior to issuance of a marriage license. Some states have redefined marriage so as to designate same sex relationships, "marriage".
And of course there is no legal requirement for people to have kids, because marriage is more about stability than just having kids.
Do u really think that there would b a need to legally require it? Society knows, or at least did, that sex between husband and wife, aka "marital relations", leads to conception.
Also, I don't know. I'm not gay. All I know is that it's unfair to deny marriage to people that want it simply based upon their sex.
Well that doesn't make sense. No one is denied marriage based on their sed, because marriage is a union of both sexes. What some folks want is for same sex emotional personal sexual unions to be called marriage. To call a veggie patty a "burger", even though the ground beef isn't there.
