    This is far from true. The first thing that springs to mind is divorce to get an abused spouse out of a marraige with their abuser.

    Not when divorce is don to reduce conflict, it isn't. Many parents can get along better when they aren't living together.

    an individual marriage is not the same as the right to marry

    and having equal rights calls for the option of divorce in this case

    your not making divorce seem objectively harmful at all

    Equality but only for certain groups is not equality. Coin the phrase "some people are more equal than others". SSM is not about equal rights, it's about gays having rights, and the right in question is the the right to let the State infringe on their privacy, which isn't much of a legitimate 'right' at all anyway. If SSM were about equal rights then we would be talking about all harmless unions, such a polygamy.

    I trust you're intelligent enough to not buy into the 'equality' meme.

    I trust you're not dumb enough to buy into the "attacking states rights" meme.

    SSM IS about gays having rights. equal rights.

    If it were about equality under the law then we would be talking about all groups, not just those which distract the public from obama selling terrorists modern arms.

    No, because equal protection is not a silver bullet that applies to any and all perceived inequalities. Unequal treatment from the government is acceptable given sufficient justification. Not living in a black and white universe helps.

    So, no, equal protection doesn't mean people get to marry dogs and furniture.
