    They already can get legally separated.

    If it still doesn't work, divorce.

    1. Divorce should not exist as it purports to do that which is ontologically not possible for the state to do.

    2. Legal separation should only be an option in cases of adultery or abuse.

    In government terms, marriage is a type of contract between two people.

    DIvorce ends the "contract".

    Your overthink is amusing.

    Yeah, that sucks!
    You do understand that it is the government's responsibility, based on the Constitution, to disallow the oppression of a minority by the majority.

    One does not have to prove that in court. The fact that gay parents raise children as well as straight parents is not really an issue. It has been shown in research over and over. The issue is why does the government sanction marriage in the first place? One of those reasons are what Lursa posted. And since there is no difference in regards to that issue between straights and gays, gays cannot be denied marriage based on that issue.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that this research has been brought up in court... and since court cases have nearly universally sided with SSM, my guess is that the research has been accepted as fact by the courts. As is should be.

    Christianity is irrelevant when deciding legal issues in this context.

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — The South Carolina Supreme Court is ordering state probate courts not to issue same-sex marriage licenses until a federal judge decides whether the state constitution's ban on the unions is legal.

    The Supreme Court's order disappointed dozens of gay couples in a whirlwind week of legal maneuvers.
    Gay or straight, I just do not understand all these people chomping at the bit to marry.

    Also, the woman my dad married when I was a kid caused nothing but drama in the family and continues to keep a wedge between us and him. I think a professional should have to conduct comprehensive pre-marital counseling and aprove your marriage aplication before the state will issue a license. I also think cohabiting while caring for children should be illegal.

    I'm not sure why you lie and say no one's ever answered that question, it's been directly answered many times. Your emotinal hysteria doesn't advance the discussion.

    When a minority is seen as a detriment to the overall wellbeing of the whole, then we must make exeptions.
