People don't have a right to a bride, I agree. Incidentally, I don't believe they have a right to marry the bride either.What I said was, to clarify your reading deficiencies, is that no one has a right to a bride, ie, it's not the taxpayer's job to provide you with a love puppet. Ya gotta find your own. No one can sue the state because they weren't issued their girlfriend.
Which goes to prove how un-right-like "marriage" is! Ownership of "xyz" properly purchased is your right. However you and I both agree that I can't automatically have ownership. Apply that to marriage and you realize it's ridiculous to say your not "entitled" to a house deed but your definitely "entitled" to a marriage contract.Ownership is the right.
Try to follow me on this one...The "right to life" is the guarantee that you won't be murdered under government sanction and that the government will act to punish your killer if you are murdered.
If a government actively undermines your ability to make money and purchase food, purchases that you must make so that you may live, isn't that violating that right? Even if you don't die of starvation, isn't that similar to attempted murder?
Just because our government doesn't bomb where one works, doesn't mean taxes effectively destroys it. In that same thread, I feel it is utterly ridiculous for one to put "fixing" marriage, above "fixing" life.
Unless it requires the word "marriage," at which point you'll risk life, limb and property to provide them with that fulfillment?No one has a right to a "fulfilled" life.
Some would say the same thing about love.Everything you list is the obligation of the individual to attain, not society to provide.

It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
