    The government isn't intruding in my life by recognizing my marriage to my husband. In fact, that recognition comes with a heck of a lot of benefits. And it is recognition that those entering into a marriage ask for. It isn't like the government forces you to get married.

    I'll name several well known ones. Ancient Greece, Rome, some areas of China, Mesopotamia, plus the earlier pagan tribes of Western Europe and the British Isles, along with some Native American tribes and even some African tribes.

    There is no law regarding the ability to procreate as a condition to get married. In fact many people who cannot procreate can get married. In further fact, allowing SSM would have zero effect on birthrates. So many fails...

    The government doesn't allow gays to marry, though. Right? Wouldn't you agree that shows too much government intrusion I marriage?

    You said marriage was a government intrusion into your life. Asking if you chose not to get married is a logical question to follow from that.

    Marriage is an example of government intrusion, i.e. government banning gay marriage is example of too much government intrusion in our private lives. You know damn well what I meant. You're just being argumentative.
