Oh I see you went to see the Wizard of Oz and got yourself a brain. Good for you. In time you'll be using it just like the rest of us.<quoted text>
I love it when your type throws the term "foundation for marriage" around. It must impress the stupid people, but it's meaningless to anyone with a brain.
How silly of me to think that, "consumation of the marriage", "marital relations", "presumption of paternity", "begetting children", etc., has anything to do with sex withing marriage.Civil marriage is not now nor has it ever been about a sexual union. How many times do you have to be told that before you'll get it?? When does the government official witness the couple having sex together to verify the validity of their marriage???
Yes it is. Either way it would not apply to same sex siblings. If same sex first cousins can marry, why not same sex siblings?That's not even close to the reason it's not allowed. You've been told that, too, but you're clearly either too thick or too stubborn to listen.
The one constant, at least in terms of American marital jurisprudence is male female, at least unil1 2004. All the other changes, such as elevating the wife's status within the marriage didn't eliminate her from the marriage, at least legally, again prior to 2004 in all fifty states, since then she still is referenced as an integral part of the martial relationship in 32 states.Marriage laws have been in a constant state of change since they begin. Why don't you know that?
Oh yes it does, and you know it. Thanks to legal SSM we now have "couples rights". What is a plural marriage? An interconnecting combination of couples. Kody and Mrs. Brown are one couple. Kody and Mrs. Brown are another couple, Kody and Mrs. Brown are a third couple. Do you see a pattern here? Good, I see your're getting the hang of that brain the Wizard gave you. You should be proud, equal rights for same sex couples has opened the door to equal rights for opposite sex couples within a plural marriage.Nope. Simply calling him what he is. Legally, he's my husband. And I am HIS husband. Why is that hard for you to understand?
Ahhhhh..the hererosexualization of homosexuality. Redundant. "Yes, I have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, only hold the jelly and add more peanut butter".
So what? For at least the third time now, they are free to use any and all arguments that they believe will help their case. They would be remiss if they didn't. That still has N-O-T-H-I-N-G to do with equal rights for same-sex couples, does it?
