    You do Jerry. You state that unless a couple wants to have children they have no business marrying.

    Where did I say having the children was the only reason to marry, though?

    You have to have flower to make a cake, but that's by far not the only ingredient.

    Here's what you said:

    "Categorically, childless couples have absolutely no business getting married."

    Right, and no where in that do I say that having children is the only reason to marry. There are many secondary reasons, but without the primary reason no one has any business marrying.

    Bottom line. Without the primary reason for marrying, and that is to have children, no couple should marry, according to your line of reasoning, Jerry.

    So that would make divorce impossible if there are children?

    Right, but that's not...

    ONLY means "one and only" not just "primary."

    You believe that couples should not marry unless they will have children. No childless couples should marry. That is your view. No?

    So the millions of older couples who married after menopause have no business being married, huh? Your widowed grandmother, or perhaps even mother, should be banned from marrying if she's no longer fertile, right?

    As long as a gay couple has children or intends to have children, you're ok with them marrying.

    Right, but nowhere did I say having children was the one and only reason to marry. There are many reasons to marry, but as all those other reasons serve the family, creating/maintaining the family is the primary reason to marry. No family, no business getting married.

    Gay individuals might already have children too, so he should support them marrying to solidify the family unit.

    Or maybe, just maybe, he hasn't thought this stuff through and is just spewing half-baked opinions.

    I wonder which it is.
