    Why? They're not just in it for the benefits, are they?

    You just stop issuing marriage licenses to everyone and when those people die or get divorced the government is done with marriage. Gays can't complain about unequal treatment nor can straight couples, so all should be good.
    Nah.

    From what I hear from people like Roguenuke(I think that is right) it's all about the benefits. Apparently, it's just too much of a bother to be so shallow without government. Who knew?


    Nah.
    Why? The fourteenth amendment can't be invoked and no one is losing their benefits. I don't see why my plan wouldn't work.

    If the SSM opponents have taught me anything, it's that they hate love
    Love doesn't appear to have anything to do with it. All I ever hear about is how awesome the benefits are.

    So people in opposite gender marriage would be fine with giving up the benefits then? A married couple in Australia just recently promised to dissolve their government marriage license should ssm come to their country, which seems principally consistent. Is that what you're suggesting?

    Because it does nothing for me. Thanks, though.

    I truly, truly pity you if you actually think marriage has nothing to do with love and everything to do with benefits.

    Just to be fair to you.
    If I die first, my wife gets half my teacher's pension.
    The same will now be true for those in gay marriages.

    It shouldn't be too hard to Google DEM Mayors and Governors who have recently fretted over what these marriages would do their budgets.
    This can be viewed as unintended consequences/unfunded mandates/unplanned for outcomes .

    They wouldn't have to give up their benefits. People that are married would keep their benefits, but the government would not issue any further licenses effectively ending government marriage once all current marriages end by either death or divorce. This wouldn't lead to any issues with the fourteenth amendment as the same conditions would be applied across board.

    Because it does nothing for me. Thanks, though.
    I didn't expect it would.

    You may have won a court case, and the left-leaning folks on this site may support you, but you will NEVER be socially accepted by mainstream America.

    I never had a problem with gays before today, but this is too much. I will not be your friend.

    That's the impression I get from people on DP.

    And why get married for love anyway? You don't need marriage to say you love someone, to commit to another person, to live with someone, to share your life with someone, to have children, to share your stuff, to raise children, etc, etc, etc. Why get married if there wasn't cool stuff to get because of it? Seems kind of pointless.
