Aw c'mon. Tell us how you and your husband have a biological child together.
Just like real babies are born, put it in the hole, wait a while and one comes out. This one just happen to come out brown.

You have linked to some "Yahoo" contributor; someone who basically wrote a term paper. And she never used your quote.
I don't have to prove that your comment is a lie. You need to prove that it's true. Give us one a single legitimate social scientist who proves your "social science" claim.
Social science (and basic common sense) defines marriage as a legal union that meets the needs of two people.
It doesn't matter whether a couple marries to raise a family and/or for companionship and/or for one of the pair to improve their status (financial/material) and/or for love and/or lust/beauty...
All of these are legitimate reasons for marriage.
The government certainly doesn't become involved in the reasons people marry. It's none of their business. It's none of the church's business. And it's certainly none of your business.
Here is one to start with. There are many more that you could have easily found (maybe you did and just pretended ignorance again...).

Read the first paragraph.

You posted nothing but crap
Show me the legal marriage contract for other animals, lets start there.
What is the evolutionary scientific based marriage contract.
I will give you a hint, none exists
I know more of anthropology both physical and cultural than you realize, and to date you have posted nothing but crap that does not relate in any way to marriage law.

You forgot already?

Procreation is not a requirement for a marriage license

Mating behavior is not stipulated for a marriage license

There are no legal marriage contracts in the animal kingdom as they are not natural, but legal contracts.

Tell you what, every time you post I will be glad to remind you

If we don't finally get some spine and eradicate those cockroaches once and for all, then no child is safe.

I agree all religious fundamentalists need to be quarantined until we can find a cure, and by all means keep the children away from them.:)

I'm sorry, the issue was the basic essence of marriage. As I noted before, mating behavior is the primary driver. Legal issues followed much later, primarily to protect mothers and children.

You can dumb down your relationship to a contract, but don't insult intelligent people by calling it marriage.

Why don't you grow up and realize that it's NONE OF YOUR FREAKING BUSINESS what two people do in the privacy of their own home, as long as what they do occurs between CONSENTING ADULTS and doesn't break any laws.
If you don't want to dip your dick in someone's behind, then DON'T DO IT! Millions of straight and gay people do it every day. It's their lives.
Stop being a child. Or maybe you're actually still a child and posting on an adult website.
Either way, get over it.
Anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning. It is why it is considered illegal in many countries, and was here until recently.

That medical fact has not changed, and is a major part of how AIDS originated in our country and spread. THAT IS STILL COSTING ALL OF US IN MANY WAYS.

So take your self-righteous hissy fit and stuff it.

The "basic essence of marriage" is a human legal matter, not a natural matter.

There are no legal "marriages” in the animal kingdom outside of human governmental law.

You are free to call your grotesque marriage whatever you want to, but you will not be defining mine or anyone else’s.

There is no requirement of intent or ability for procreation for a marriage license, we marry couples all the time and have for hundreds of years that cannot have children. Your belittling those people is not helping your case in any way at all, you are only driving more people to our side of equality and freedom.

Me?

You talking about eradicating people.

That sword can cut both ways

I just enjoy putting peoples comments into perspective by turning their opinions onto themselves.

Or better, Imagine one of those gaudy felt paintings of Jesus at the rock with a speech bubble over his head saying “Wee need to grow a spine and eradicate these people!”

Yeah that kind of puts it in its proper perspective, I don’t assume for one moment that a single” actual Christian” has ever posted in this forum. Just a bunch of people that use that religion as justification for their bigotry and their desire for power over others.

If there needed to be a 'requirement', we wouldn't need birth control would we?

Idiot.
