    The right in question here is marriage, not having kids.

    The theoretical hardships children may or may not face has no stance on deciding who can and cannot marry.
    Why?
    The question is why the right or marriage is exempt from the controlling in terest of the state 'welfare of the children'?
    Simply stating that it is exempt doesnt answer the question.

    There are not any children in this instance..........
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Hmmm, so you mean the judge shouldn't have disqualified the couples right to marriage, since having kids had nothing to do with their right to marry?

    Ironic, given that the whole point of this is to illustrate that the 'compelling state interest in the welfare of the child' argument is selective BS (as was noted long, long ago).

    That much has been made VERY clear -- all that matters is which rights can be comprimised by the 'compelling state interest in the welfare of the child' argument, not the actual welfare of the children. If there's a right that someone likes -- in this case, that of people of mixed races who want to marry -- the 'compelling state interest' argument is tossed out the window.

    You may now resume trying to turn this into a argument about guns.

    This is an example of you not understanding the issue at hand.
    Deliberate or not, I'll let you decide.

    Everyone has been asking you the same question.

    What's the big deal? So what if mulatto children grow up with "particular" hardships?? Who the hell doesn't have any hardships when growing? Are the mulatto kid's hardships so much worse?

    Equal protection under the law refers to the issuing of the license, an important constitutional protection and one of the foundations for the opinion issued in Loving.
    Are the couple actually restricted from getting the license? Are they unable to get a license from another justice?

    I don't think anybody is arguing the state does not have an intrest in the welfare of children. The sooner you realize that the better.
