    I don't have to because that is not a requirement of marriage. In fact, raising children, whether your own or not, is not a requirement of marriage.

But that doesn't matter. He is much more of a father to my husband than his biological father (who couldn't even take a few minutes to just meet his daughter-in-law or two grandsons when we lived within the same city limits of him for over 3 years) is.

    There is also a method my friends used, IVF. Use sperm donation or a surrogate mother to make a baby. It is legal and done quite often, especially by married opposite sex couples who cannot procreate with each other.

    There are tons of other options as well, including adoption. Or do you not think that people who adopt are "creating a family"?

    What part of "that doesn't matter" do you not understand? My inlaws formed a family the same way many gay couples do. Are my inlaws not a good enough family for you? (And no, they cannot make/have children that are both of theirs.) You are greatly insulting so many families, and not just those involving same sex couples, by refusing to see that families do not require two biological parents of any children they are raising to be considered a "family".

    Why does that matter?

    No it's not. It's about legal recognition of same sex marriage in Indiana. We are talking about legal marriage here, which does not require procreation between the two getting married to be possible. Heck, no couple has any obligation to raise children or even want to raise children to get married in the state of Indiana.

    But you've already admitted that it's ok for people who can't procreate to marry each other. And you're admitting it again in this post, those "exceptions."
