    Not every same sex couple who wants to get married has children.

    They all exist so as to provide children a stable home, which in turn creates more stability. Enjoyment of secondary benefits meant to reinforce the primary, when the primary purpose is absent, is not a reason to redefine marriage to now be about enjoying those secondary benefits. You gut the thing when you do.
    Redefine marriage? How does allowing same sex couples to marry in any way affect people who have traditional marriages? I don't understand this "redefining marriage" argument. It sounds like semantics, as if somehow there is a potential danger to marriage if gays are allowed to have it, but whenever questioned on it, traditional marriage folks never seem to have an answer.

    I've clearly stated my support for exactly that many times on this thread.
    Your position would be detrimental to the stability of society and is highly irrational. By the way, how would your position not be a redefinition of marriage?

    If you can't open pdfs, no wonder you don't know what's going on in the world.

    I am not the one making claims about the purpose of marriage.

    Right, and those couples should simply stop trying to get marriage; it doesn't apply to the kind of relationship they enjoy.

    It changes what marriage is for, from raising children to free association.

    Gays do not need marriage to freely associate as that's not a right marriage addresses in any way.

    Possibly, but the point of being on a debate forum is to demonstrate how.
