    You can be a grandparent if you have gay children. Not only are there likely more children to give you grandchildren, gays can adopt (although it should be easier) or use other methods to have children.

    Besides, what would be the difference if you had infertile children or one of them fell in love with someone who could not have children? What if your kid/kids didn't want children? After all, it is their decision if you get grandchildren, not yours.

    Yes, including the right to enter into a contract that makes another adult a person's closest legal relative. The perks are given by society but can be change. Marriage itself is a contract between two people. The sex of the two involved should not be a limiting factor since sex in no way limits a person's ability to live up to the legal marriage contract.

    I believe Redress warned us about this line of conversation so I will let it go. You already know how I feel.

    Because people have always felt that they needed to limit marriage to only certain people. While having a marriage license does help the government keep track of who is married and helps keep people from getting scammed or the government from getting scammed, it should not be used to limit people who are legitimately trying to enter into the contract and who could otherwise do so if not for their relative sexes.

    Grandchildren from gay sons/daughters could still have the same amount of your blood as those from straight sons/daughters.
