so someone's wife or husband are not kin?KiMare'a wrote;
Kinship is acknowledged in marriage because it most often results in 'kin'. The union of two family 'kins' creating a new branch on a family tree. Sometimes that branch never develops kin and dead ends.
A ss couple can NEVER establish a family tree or kinship.
Definition of KIN
1 a group of persons of common ancestry : clan
2 one's relatives : kindred
Don't call putting your head in someone's ass marriage. It clearly isn't.
Nothing you said changes the facts.
In fact, you bring up an interesting point. If a childless couple divorces and remarries, do they have two sets of kin? No. However, if that couple had children, they would forever be tied to each others family through their children.
The rest is so silly stupid, it is only evidence of the degree of denial the attempt to equate ss couples with marriage has led to.
-Ss couples cannot mutually procreate.
-Adoption can extend the family name, in name only. It does not establish 'kinship' in the true sense of the word. That is a simple fact that even adoptive parents acknowledge.
-At it's most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.
Ss couple are a defective failure of mating behavior. Literally 'unmarriage'.
-Neither my wife nor I have ever been divorced. The slut lesbian in me has never been married.
-If salvation on Judgment Day is by performance, none of us will be smiling.
I think every legal and social writing and decision on the subject would show you to be as incredibly wrong as we all know you are...
take a little dip in the real world knowledge pool, it'll be refreshing!
