    re: Federal government recognizes same-sex marriages in six more states [W:70,126]

    It seems the progressives want me to be gay.....

    What's new?

    They're itching to agree on politics yet they cant bring themselves into the libertarian or classical liberal mindset without taking baby steps.

    Grow the **** up!

    How about the federal government doesn't acknowledge marriage?

    Have another drink while you ponder that insane concept.

    I don't agree. Someone can on purpose or by default enjoy the benefits of a program without necessarily agreeing with it. For example, progressives don't agree with Citizen's United, but in order to compete will in fact do the same thing. Many people think their taxes should be higher, but nonetheless fill out their taxes as instructed and don't artificially increase their taxes, and so on. To say that because someone may be reaping benefits they should be forced to agree with the laws or rules or whatever cause or allow those benefits is silly.

    So are you saying that you're not getting married, or that your own marriage is now defunct?

Additionally, since it costs considerably less to live as a couple than a single, all the tax breaks etc that recognizing marriage offers are counterintuitive to how they should be distributed, if at all.
    I'm kind of wondering how the issues of inheritance, child rearing, medical decisions for unconcious spouses, etc. could be properly handled without government-sanctioned marriage. I am not a big fan of government dictating who can and cannot marry, but at the same point I don't see scrapping the whole thing as a viable alternative. I'd be fine with just enforcing the 14th amendment and allowing all consenting adults to marry.

    a. I am not married.
    b. I do not live in the US and in our laws marriage is not only mentioned but also regulated.

    Same as they are once the marriage is in divorce, legal contracts, which is how they should have started imo.
