Weren't you claiming that you felt that marriage had become meaningless? If you truly feel that, why not divorce and demonstrate that you feel that way?Prove my feeling by contributing to the divorce culture? E' pazzo?
It will help it for those same-sex couples (and their families and friends) who want to have their marriages legally recognized.it won't help it either to redefine marriage.
They should get legal recognition for their *marriage* because it is wrong for our laws to discriminate on the basis of gender.Becaue they're older than me, that's why they should get legal recognition for their relationship?
Orwell would no doubt be rolling over in his grave to think that his novel about the destruction of freedom was being used to deny equality to a group of people.It tells me that Orwellian new speak definition of marriage denies the union of husband and wife is unique
What is unique is when two *people* find each other and want to share their lives with each other, with legal recognition from society through the actions of the government. I'm sorry to have to break the news to you, Pietro, but your relationship with your wife is not a smidgen more "unique" than my relationship with my husband.
Whether that man and woman were married or not. Agreed?If not for the union of a man and a woman, you and your spouse would not exist. Both of you are a product of the coital sexual union of a man and a woman.
Now that we both understand sexual reproduction, we can turn to the actual issue before us, which is *marriage*. And *marriage* doesn't require that the participants sexually reproduce.
Are you saying that if your wife had never married you (or anyone else), then no marriage on Earth would be valid? She is necessary for all marriages to exist?So I honor her by advocating she is not necessary?
Oh, wait, you mean that she is necessary to *your individual* marriage.
Guess what? My husband is necessary to *my individual* marriage.
