    So perhaps if every society in the history of the world (including societies which accepted homosexuality) thought something so ridiculous as to never even consciously consider it, perhaps there's a reason for that.

    That the purpose of marriage is contradicted by same-sex relations.

    What is that purpose and how is it "contradicted?"

    It might seem like a silly question, but I just don't want to put words in your mouth and provide a rebuttal for an argument you haven't made. It's rude.

    Procreation. Sodomy is not conducive to procreation.

    First of all, there have been societies that have allowed same sex marriages. Even some in the past. We have proof of this. Second, there are currently many places that allow same sex marriage. Parts of our society did not allow interracial marriage. In fact, almost every single state of the US (with only a very few exceptions) had laws restricting marriage to those of the same race at one time in our history as a country. And there was even a push during the early 20th Century (if not before) to have a race restriction on marriage put into our US Constitution.

    My mother or father getting remarried to anyone will not result in procreation. In fact, my father married a woman 13 years his senior after divorcing my mother, a woman who couldn't have procreated with him even if he hadn't gotten his boys snipped. No one cared. In fact, we have some laws in several states that specifically mandate that certain couples (first cousins) cannot marry if they can procreate with each other, but can marry legally if they cannot procreate with each other. Not to mention, no couple is ever required to show any state clerk issuing them a marriage license that the two people can procreate (positively) in order to be able to marry (as I mentioned before, they may have to prove they can't procreate). And no marry is ever voided by the state for the couple not procreating.

    Except every society in the history of the world did not reject same sex couples getting married. In fact, many societies allowed it in the past. Just because you wish to reject history doesn't mean that you are right.

    Two points of rebuttal:

    1) While procreation is certainly a common aspect of marriage, it is not a requirement. We allow elderly or otherwise infertile couples to marry, and we allow couples to stay married even if they have no interest in procreating.

    2) Allowing same-sex couples to marry does not hinder procreation. A same-sex couple isn't going to suddenly decide to be heterosexual and go have children just because you prevent them from marrying each other.
