    Why would there be LSD in kids' cereal if drugs were decriminalized? Wait.... before you answer that: Do you understand the difference between legalization and decriminalization? I'll give you a clue, neither one would make LSD in kids' cereal a reality.

    The US prohibited alcohol at one time. The abandonment of this position never led to the manufacture or sale of whiskey cheerios AFAIK

    Yeah, the point is a no limits libertarian view of the world. There should be no limits on anything. And btw, whiskey cheerios for kids.would be illegal today.

Of course, racists would oppose it but not because it's not marriage, but, ironically, because it IS the very nature and purpose of marriage that they would find so loathsome between people of mixed race. While there's no doubt that homosexual relationships are real relationships, they simply can't truly be marital relationships by any reasonable expectation of the purpose and design of marriage. While I do find this to be a conundrum because I think homosexuals should have access to the same protections that marriage affords, I'm just not convinced that just extending the definition of marriage to accommodate that makes sense. It's the simplest solution but it creates an oxymoron because two people of the same sex can't be a natural marriage. That's my opinion and I know it's not one shared by everyone and that's cool with me. I don't think it's necessary for everyone to share my opinion on anything.
    You wrongly assume that nature "intended" anything. Nature didn't even "intend" marriage. And marriage has had many purposes since its beginning, not all centered around baby-making. In fact, many people since marriage began have gone outside of their marriages to make babies, and many more have been married and remained married for decades without ever having any children, either by choice or "design".

    You are simply throwing in some nonsense that is nothing more than subjective opinion and beliefs.

    Except this isn't true. Pairings in many species of mammals include two males or two females, at least for a minority of their numbers.

    I do not think the gov should be involved however. That would be an over reach of governmental power imo
    Perhaps the problem is just that because you don't like it, you notice "gay pda" more than "straight pda"? There is no evidence that any gays place their sexuality in your face more than heteros, only that it is becoming more common for them to openly display their sexuality, which is a change from the past, and something that we are more likely to notice than hetero pda, since we are used to seeing two people of different sexes kissing.

    I healthy respect for individual liberty doesn't equate to " no limits " imho

    And btw, whiskey cheerios for kids.would be illegal today.
    And it would remain so for obvious reasons

    3/4ths have no plans to adopt/have children.

    in short, they aren't in any way trying to live the lives of a standard "married couple". they just want the right. so let's give it to them. They only want it for the "title", not the idea or meaning of the thing. Just let them have it already. enjoy
    First, there is no requirement to remain monogamous in marriage, nor is there a requirement to have children or even raise children in marriage. Those simply aren't legal (or at least not enforceable by an outside force with the exception of the military when it comes to monogamy) requirements of legal marriage. Legal marriage is an agreement to become each other's legal kin, from a legal standpoint. It is not a legal agreement to only be in an intimate or sexual relation with that person unless the two people entering into it agree. It is not a legal agreement to have or raise children together unless the people agree to this, and even then there are always going to be times when they can't guarantee this.

You're just numb to it.
    Heck even a show like The Nanny from the 90s had at least a dozen sexual innuendos or double entendres in each episode.
