    Nature doesn't seem to have a problem with homosexuality.

    Quit trying to dodge the fact that your daughter and her partner can not create a child together. And sorry, but I have to take your confidence with a grain of salt, given that you're talking about your daughter.

    What if a straight married couple refuses to procreate?Should the government step in and force the issue?
    The infertile couples are the ones who should adopt, because the child isn't going to notice a difference. Heterosexual couples who don't plan on kids are still most likely to have sex and have a safety net for that unplanned child many have. Your daughter is not going to have an accidental child with her lesbian lover. Your adopted grandchild is going to continually wonder why they have two moms and no dad, likely teased for it too.

    Maybe you and your wife should see a marriage counselor.
    Let me guess,the one that should be allowed to define what marriage is for everyone....is you?
    The relationship my wife and I have puts others to shame. Answer this question. If everyone gets to add what they want to the meaning of marriage, what is it going to mean in the end?

    By the way, thanks for the suggestion, but it's about as wasteful as the offers Comcast sends me every week to try and steal me from FiOS.

    They can give their partner a promise ring representing their commitment, for all I care. One of the main reasons federal government recognizes marriage is to help those creating families, i.e. the next generation of Americans. Since a same sex pair can not have kids together, they don't need such benefits.
    Wrong... and this continues to show how little you know about this issue. One of the main reasons that the federal government recognizes marriage is for the REARING of children, not creation... something that same-sex couples do just fine. As usual on this issue, you are completely wrong.

    Please show where diversity is defined as something to strive for.

    Talk about silly arguments.

    You must be talking about taking care of your little cabbage patch dolls if you think rearing without procreation is typical.

    Actually, your reluctance to define your terms shows that you may not know what they mean or that you don't understand the debate process. You asked a question. Since it is your question, it is up to YOU to define the parameters.

    Irrelevant. Marriage is not about procreation. If it were, married couples would be required to do so. The lack of logic and gaps in your knowledge of this issue become stronger each time you post.
