    It did at one point, hence the first same sex marriage ban So same sex marriage is not exactly new.



    history has never recognized homosexual relationships. doesn't mean they didn't happen but no law ever recognized the marriage. it was consistantly recognized as a man and a women.
    It was law at one point in history, otherwise they would not have had to ban it.

    Trying to reinvision history does not change what happened. Same sex marriage has existed as long as opposite sex marriage and in many parts of the world.

    Many do.

    No, they just stopped denying benefits.

    Feel free to leave the discussion.
    Marriage was between a man and a woman.
    Before that it was between a man and a woman of the same race.
    Before that it was between a man and his property. (aka the wife)
    Before that it was between a man and his property. (aka any number of wives)

    Do you have something to say other than "gay marriage wasn't marriage before?" Because we already know that. Thank you.

    And it will soon most likely be two same sex people. But it isn't yet.

    You could have just said "No, I don't have anything more to say."

    Have a nice day.

    I've contributed plenty. For example, I notice you never actually responded to my points about an "important state interest"

    about as useful as ignoring opinions you don't agree with.
    Ludin, I tried very hard not to ignore Scatt. But she just keeps repeating the same thing "Marriage is between opposite sex people" with no qualifiers. We pointed out the many places it ISN'T just between opposite sex people; we pointed out how the definition includes same sex people; and she .....JUST .....KEPT.... REPEATING.... HER....INCORRECT.... STATEMENT

    She didn't say "I think it should be between opposite sex couples". She didn't say "In some states it's only between opposite sex people" even when encouraged to do so.

    She just kept saying a statement that was obviously wrong. (I have lots of friends who are married to someone of the same sex. Her statement is wrong.)

    But I did try to not ignore her, probably longer than any one on this thread cared to read.
