marriage is a club for folks who may have kids within the family.
If we excluded the infertile from marriage would you STFU?
something tells me no....
There is NO requirement to have kids to get married...infertile or NOT!

The following are not legal requirements to get married.

1. Procreation, the ability to, and/or the desire to.

2. Love,whether it be romantic, platonic, friendship, etc.

3. Cohabitiation

4. Sex, the desire to, and/or the ability to.

5. Sexual attracted to one's prospective marriage partner.

6. Shared bank accounts

Did I miss anything here folks?

If none of these are required for a valid marriage license, why then does the state license marriage? What it a license to do?

No, marriage is not that club you think it is and I have pointed out to you with real world facts that that is not the case. why can[t you comprehend such a simple notion?

to have a legal binding contract recognized by the state and federal gov't that both bestow benefits/rights on those entering into that contract.

Don't you 'EVER' compare the disparities that African American have endured over centuries of oppression with the whining gays that want a few extra tax dollars again...that is the biggest insult to African American everywhere in this millenium so far...

No, the ones I have pointed out to you many times but you are not smart enough to realize, or are being purposefully obtuse in ignoring.

once again, people who have no possibility of procreating are given marriage licenses without question, it is not part of the right to marry.

can you say these words back to me so i know you actually understand them? can you dispute this FACT in any way?
