    Though separated for 3 years, I'm still legally married, which means I can't marry anyone at all. I am now one of the black-listed groups, just like same-sex couples.

    At least gays can show public affection, go on dates, live together and all that good stuff. If I tried that right now I'd face court martial.

    Gays have more rights today then I do, and they want to bitch? ****'em. They should just shut the **** up. They don't know how good they have it.

    When you were single, before you were married, did you have the right to OSM?

    Ok, so you did have the right.
    "A SSM ban doesn't violate my rights because I never had that right in the first place."
    So why didn't you have the right to a SSM?

    Re: Maryland Gay Marriage Bill sent back to cmte. Shelved for this year at least.

    Honestly, I'm really getting tired of this argument. The fact is that all the old farts are going to die and my generation is going to legalize it. Every five years the old farts claim that support for same sex marriage has peaked and this year was the first year that national support for same sex marriage has gone over 50%. The only reason that it is still an issue is because the old farts really don't want same sex marriage and the people who support it are not as galvanized for it as the opposition is against it.

    DOMA will be found unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. I have no doubt at all about it because it is a flagrant violation of the Full Faith and Credit Clause. Once that occurs, this will truly be a state issue and it will only be a matter of repealing each state amendment one at a time as the old farts die off. When same sex marriage has been legal in Canada for twenty years and people see that the world has not ended for our northern neighbors, all the idiocy surrounding the arguments that old farts are still trying to use will become completely apparent.

    For the same reason I never had a right to marry a 1st cousin, a minor child, the mentally deficient, someone who was already married, etc.

    I mean forget about taking anything off the list, I want to expand it. Without comprehensive pre-marital personal and financial counseling, mixed religion, mixed race, and any person raising small children should be out-of-bounds.
