This is a serious question that I would like to have answered. If same sex marriage is considered constitutional, then why can't I, a straight, have the same arrangement with a best friend in order to avoid the tax burden?

I really don't understand. Pro or anti gay doesn't seem to be the real issue here. It seems that once this is opened up, where would it stop? As I said, I am not trying to bait or debate, I want to understand!

Forget it!!! Our culture is evolving in the wrong direction. I note the responses to my sincere question. Yet, no one provided a written response, just peanuts and dull lights.
