Here are a few other words that you and your wife can call your "unique" relationship...
Jealous Marriage--A marriage between heterosexuals who are jealous that homosexuals also get to use the term "marriage".
Selfish Marriage--A marriage between heterosexuals who are too selfish to share the word "marriage".
Insecure Marriage--A marriage between heterosexuals who are too insecure with their own marriage, so they must forbid all others from having access to the word.
Meddlesome Marriage--A marriage between heterosexuals who believe that they know what's best for all other couples--meddling into other people's private lives.
Projection Marriage--A marriage between heterosexuals who have a rocky foundation. So they project their fears, concerns, and conflicts onto external issues, such as same-sex marriage; hoping that it will divert attention away from what it really the problem in their own marriage.
Sad Marriage--a marriage between heterosexuals who have nothing better to do with their time other than to attack other people's relationships. This makes them a very sad and kind of pathetic couple.
Whiny Marriage--a marriage between heterosexuals who LOVE to whine about gay people getting married. Friends, relatives, and co-workers of couples in a Whine Marriage" do a lot of eye-rolling, fake yawning, and lip-biting. They often stare at the clock and think to themselves, "When are they going to leave?!?"

Gee, this is a lot more fun than I thought it would be!
Oy vey. I could make up a much funnier list about gay marriage. Maybe I will later.

And it will be fun for all! Well, maybe not you.

1.) Another post where you focus on anal sex.
2.) Anal sex has been practiced for eons by straights and gays as a means of birth control, to maintain virginity, and for pleasure in both genders.
3.) If you, personally, find anal sex to be "harmful, unhealthy, and demeaning", then you are doing it wrong.
4.) Butt out of people's butts, butt boy.
VV you are not fooling anyone, matter of fact you are making a total stupid ass of your self. Your credibility

Jonathan Soroff explains why some gays, including him, are against same-sex marriage.

It seems like every time I see certain family members—my niece and father, for instance— they ask me when I’m going to marry Sam, the man I’ve been with for five and a half years. Sam’s father is one of the worst offenders. He and I are literally never together alone without him saying (as if there were a direct correlation between the two),“Jonathan, when are you and Sam going to get married? I think you two should have children.” I put a temporary kibosh on this one day at lunch, when I answered,“Paul, I’ve been trying to impregnate your son on a regular basis for a couple of years now, and you know what? So far, nothing!” This silenced him for about six months.
&#9830;&#9674;&#98 30;
Living in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal, this is one of the hazards of being gay. Everyone expects you to be pro-gay marriage, and I can’t say that I am.

Don’t get me wrong. I think Sam should have inheritance/pension/social security rights, be my healthcare proxy, get the tax breaks, be eligible for citizenship, etc., etc., exactly like heterosexual married couples. What I’m against is the use of the word “marriage,” and I think we would have achieved equal rights by now, on a national level, if so much breath hadn’t been wasted and the right-wing gotten its knickers in a twist over the nomenclature.

I’d go so far as to say that “gay marriage”(not even as an issue but as a matter of semantics) helped cost John Kerry the presidential election that brought us for more years of squandered opportunity and global goodwill, along with gross mismanagement, that characterized the Bush administration. So why do they insist on calling it marriage?

It’s demonstrably not the same thing as a marriage between a man and a woman. It’s two guys or two girls, and no matter how much Mendelssohn and matching white outfits you dress it up in, the religious and social significance of a gay wedding ceremony simply isn’t the same. We’re not going to procreate as a couple (until science catches up), and while the desire to demonstrate commitment might be laudable, the religious traditions that have accommodated same-sex couples have had to do some fairly major contortions to do so (which is probably healthy for them but neither here nor there). So the promise part is nice. Otherwise,“gay marriage” is beside the point. And for precisely that reason, I find it cringe-worthy to watch gay couples aping the rituals of a heterosexual wedding ceremony.

Which brings me to the saddest story I know about the legalization of gay marriage. A prominent gay couple who had been together for many years and were raising two sons were expected to be among the first to throw a lavish wedding when marriage became legal in Massachusetts. When the invitations weren’t forthcoming, I asked one of them why, and he said,“Fuck that. We’ve already spent a fortune on lawyer’s fees to be able to have the same thing.”

Don't forget to mention the lesbian couple, who on their wedding day dress in "heterosexual" attire. One wears the wedding dress, the other the tuxedo. Sounds like they're heterosexuals trapped in homosexual bodies.

No. That's not it. It's because he is a hypocrite and doesn't want to hear about it. Mind closed. Case closed, a bigot. Just like you Jizzy! No wonder you defend him.

When we cut through all your bullsh!t, the bottom line is that I support marriage equality and you and VV do not.

VV, you seem very anal about all this.

Analize this with me.

I'm trying to protect gays from a serious medical condition.

BUTT you on the other hand, apparently want to leave those with sexual defects bareassed vulnerable.

It appears to me, you should be emBARRASSED about this foolishness.

Because of the First Amendment.

You have the right to pursue happiness, you don't have a right to happiness. We should change laws to make everyone equal, not happy. Even the ones you hate like Muslims and Mormons.
