    Were talking about marriage here - not civil rights....

    Yeah, I was a paralegal for 2 years, and I know Latin - it kinda came up an often lot...

    You just don't know the reference.

    Besides the root cause of "ad" results in adjective - which I didn't use so go "learn off"...

    Exactly it should start with the issues that many ended marriages deal with way too late. The difference would be a proper contract in the beginning, before the vows are taken.

    It's only a matter of time before gays hit the 50% divorce rate.

    I'll take that to mean that you used the terms, but were never required to translate them while I had to translate them every day. They weren't just sounds like "Sony" or "Mitsubishi" or whatever. We actually had to know what they meant. Therefore ad hominem, to the man, is specifically addressed to a person. Unless you didn't actually use the word "you" in your insult to me? Maybe you meant someone else?

    Anyway, this is off topic. My question to you is, now that gay marriage is legal, how is that anything but a plus for you?

    The United States first ten amendments and the other seventeen if they don't contradict the first ten?

    Just thought I'd be the first one to hijack this topic for a change.
    Also, something about tyranny and overriding the will of people because ballot initiatives. Oh, and activist judges.

    And who gets to decide whether same-sex marriage falls under the protections of those amendments?
