And who wins the Indy 500 has no effect on who wins the Kentucky Derby, either.

If a married couple is so fixated on another couple's marriage, then there are issues with the "fixated".

There are only two ways gay marriage can affect straight marriage:

(1) There is a limited number of marriage licenses a civic government can sell, and the straights are unable to buy any. Given that there are no such limits anywhere, the "problem" doesn't exist.

(Even if it did, gays make up 10% of the populace. For them to use up all the licenses would mean many getting married at once. Next year, there wouldn't be any gay people left to marry off, so the breeders would get them all.)

(2) There are only so many churches, halls, and public parks to hold wedding ceremonies. So what? Do it in your own home, or go to Las Vegas.

Exactly. And if there were such an upswing in demand, I'm sure enterprising folk would open up new businesses to handle the flow - and help the economy as well. A win win for all. If you're against equal marriage, then you're against capitalism. Does that make you a socialist? Maybe, maybe ...

Yeah, get married in Vegas. That way you're very close to Reno, where you can get a divorce less that 24 hours after you get married. You know, like so many celebs do.(s)
