If you don't have children, the state couldn't give a rats ass rather your union works or not, because it won't be dealing with a juvenile crime rate, underachieving student, or dishing out title19 or food stamps to help that child.
Without children involved, if you and Josh parted ways, you would have to split some property. That's it. There would be no residual harm to society. The same is true for childless heteros.

Solved that issue squarely.
As to the rest of your assertion, it is all opinion. You may view it that way, but the law doesn't. Child rearing is not requisite or even particularly encouraged when getting a marriage certificate. It is an arbitrary issue you attach to the gay marriage debate so you can justify your disagreement.
OK, I will bite. Where is it documented in US law that marriage is for raising children, or however you want to word it?
