The word "conjugal" apparently confuses you. It used as a reference to husband AND wife, opposite sex, not necessarily a reference to sexual relations. So yes conjugal is the important aspect of marriage, its foundation.
Sorry, it DOESN'T confuse me......what confuses me is WHY you keep making an illogical claim about how important the word CONJUGAL is to the aspect of marriage...IT'S FOUNDATION as you claim, which is simply NOT true seeing as NO one is checking to see if the couple is actually performing a sexual act?

You asked No Cal which "played the man." That was a juvenile question aimed at a specific person.
As for the general question you've asked: You may as well ask why Hillary wears pants suits instead of dresses. Now surprise me by failing to make childish remarks about Hillary.
I showed that poster that women couple's wear whatever they want at their wedding and it ISN'T written in stone what one has to wear at THEIR wedding!!!

Thanks for having my back:-)

Did Hillary wear pants at her wedding? I don't think so.
My question was why do gay women usually dress as bride and groom at their weddings. So far, no answer. I will continue to believe that they think it lends a touch of normalcy to the ceremony. No one yet has said otherwise.

Questions aimed at you. Since you were so wrong about the "modern" blood testing methods, do you think gay blood should be banned? If no, why not?

you can think whatever you want and the couples getting married can continue to both get married in the places where it's legal to get married and they can also continue to wear whatever they want to wear in those ceremonies. there's no law attached to the marriage ceremony itself describing legal attire for the participants or the bride and groom.

then show us a marriage license or marriage certificate from somewhere in these united states describing as you insist it's called.

legally, we all know the correct term. it's you that having the little hissy fit about insisting on calling it something else.

reminds me of a parent insisting on teaching their children incorrect names of things.

Again, your question was answered......BECAUSE THEY CAN DRESS AS THEY PLEASE......it is after all THEIR WEDDING!!!

I also gave you links to weddings where both wear wedding dresses.......again, why? BECAUSE THEY CAN!!!

People getting married dress as they see fit.....some even wear casual attire at their wedding......imagine that!!!

The women who choose to wear pant suits instead of dresses has NOTHING to do with trying to be a "MAN", it's just them being comfortable in who they are.......sorry, you can handle that or understand that!!!

Nope, it's only a gay marriage in your head. The authority that sanctions it just refers to it as a marriage.

You tend to intentionally think a lot of stupid things. We'll just add this one to the list. We've titled the list "Stupid Things that Morons Think".

My question is, why do bigoted straight people spend inordinate amounts of time wondering about what other people wear? So far, no answer. I will continue to believe that its because their lives are so personally pathetic, that they have to spend time in imagination land in the hopes that it will make them feel better about themselves. I will continue to think that they believe everyone else thinks like they do. no one yet has said otherwise.

Just because brides and grooms USUALLY (your word) wear white gowns and tuxes doesn't mandate that ALL must dress the same. There have probably been nudists married wearing nothing at all. Are they still married even though they did not wear what you expect them to wear? Yes!

What people wear to get married is hardly a compelling argument to stop same-sex couples from marrying and just how bigoted and homophobic you are.

Wrong again. 2 men get married, that's a marriage of two gay men. Same for 2 women.

Notice hon how you didn't state "2 men get gay married....". it's because there's no such thing! Thanks for playing stupid.

How many people that get married are defined by a wedding gown or a tux?
