No restriction was in place to begin with. No man is restricted from having a wife, nor woman a husband, provided they meet all the other requirements set by the state.<quoted text>
The Orwellian newspeak is that removing a restriction, restricts anyone from having a husband or wife.
No need to remove it, both genders are included, and form the foundation of the marital relationship.Removing the gender restriction does not exclude a husband or wife.
Hmmmmm....yet you advocate maintaining other "restrictions" thus discriminating against those who want what works for them.It simply allows the individual to mutually choose according to what works best for them.
The laws in effect were changed, not do they incorporate every aspect of marital jurisprudence.While ss couples are included under all of the same laws in effect for os couples,
A very poor attempt at justifying removal of the conjugal requirement, but maintaining monogamy. How does changing monogamy not change marriage for everybody, but removing the number does?removing the number restriction is not inclusion under the laws currently in effect for couples, but rather a legal change to all of the laws that affect couples, as well as a change in the structure of society.
Not true. OSM serve to join a man and woman together as husband and wife, and provide the necessary components for procreation, which as many a court as ruled over the past,100 plus years, is a primary function of marriage.Legally, os and ss marriage are the same form and function.
Please clarify these "1,138 laws in effect". If your argument is they can be applied regard less of gender, then they can also be applies regardless of pre existing relationship. Thus two, at least same sex siblings, could be eligible.All of the more than 1,138 laws remain in effect for all couples equally. Your claim of a different form and function is not supported by any law.
