    Your reality, not mine....Gee, if I walk outside, I might fall down the steps, if I fall down the steps I may break my leg, therefore I shouldn't go outside... Makes about as much sense..

    What a pathetic......response which is no more relevant than if I cut my toenails in the improper way, I may end up with ingrown toenails.
    What you fail to recognize is the consequences of changing LAW. And according to you all it takes is an emotional attachment to another person whether it be of the opposite sex or same sex to qualify to be defined as marriage. So if YOUR requirements are solely based on emotion, the love and desire to be with the one they love, then marriage is open to anyone who has an emotional love for another whether society is accepting of it or not.
    You want to talk fallacy arguments well there is none bigger than the one you are proposing and is at the heart of every gay marriage argument.They are all based on emotion. So deal with it. And when the others come along that make you feel icky about offering them the same rights, you are going to have to deal with that also because people like you allowed it to happen.

    there are no factually negative consequences, this was asked by many posters now and every answer was destroyed and debunked.

    Vesper must be talking about Massachusetts having the second lowest divorce rate or third lowest teen pregnancy rate in the country.
