    I'm not the one claiming SCOTUS ruled on the purpose of marriage.

    I didn't ask you to do that. I asked you how you know you're still paying it, not what it is. You asked the question. How can you possibly know you're paying more taxes than you would if you were single? Did you run the scenario on your computer?

    Rrrrrright. If you say so.

    It changes what marriage is for, from raising children to free association.
    Um...no fault divorce and the liberalization of women to leave home to work did that all the way back in the 60s. Marriage hasn't been primarily about procreation and child rearing for 4 decades now. Please explain how same sex marriage could affect to any degree the institution of marriage the way those two movements did.

    Gays do not need marriage to freely associate as that's not a right marriage addresses in any way.
    Gays are not looking or marriage for free association. They are looking for it for the commitment and the health, emtional, and financial benefits they would enjoy by having it.

    Possibly, but the point of being on a debate forum is to demonstrate how.
    Very well. I'll hold you to your own standard. Demonstrate how same sex marriage would do any more to make marriage an institution of personal happiness than no fault divorce and the liberalization of women did.

    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    So he's still paying the marriage penalty when he's single again? Is that true Jerry?

    Sounds like you need a new accountant!

    It's great the DC City Council voted to legalize gay marriage. State by state city by city--eventually marriage equality will be the law of the land.
