    Think about every form you fill out. There is generally a box for "marital status" ALL of those would have to change.
    Every law in every state, and the federal laws that mentioned married would have to be changed.
    Every business form that says married/marital status would have to be changed.

    I think that the government spends enough money on stupid things. I certainly don't want more stupid things added to the list simply because some can't share a WORD.
    Operning marriage to same sex couples wouldn't require changing every law and form that mentions anything to do with marriage.

    I had a debate/conversation with someone about this...I feel it should be all or nothing with marriage. Either you give the rights and privileges to all married couples or none of them...straight or gay.

    Personally, I think the government should have nothing to do with marriage
    I am concerned about the the change of the definition of marriage.

    COP-OUT....all those forms are already updated and changed on a regular basis anyway. and with the way tech is going these days, the vast majortiy of that stuff is done (or will soon be done) digitally. One of the lamest arguments ever.

    Operning marriage to same sex couples wouldn't require changing every law.....
    it would require changing the wording of most of them. any idea how many regulations had to be changed, reprinted, etc when the military got rid of DADT? Didn't see any of you whining about "the cost" then

    What exactly was the cost of removing DADT? I don't believe that I have ever seen a record of that.

    Exactly...the word

    Be lest concerned about that because a lot of words change in meaning over time. Be more concerned with ending this discrimination and start working towards our national debt.

    ok. Why does it matter to you if others believe differently? I understand not wanting your priest performing the ceremony, or even opposing the Catholic church from recognizing gay marriage. Why does it matter to you if the US government recognizes it? Or if I do? Or if some other person does? You believe what you believe, and the Catholic church has it beliefs. And those are valid. But what they US recognizes doesnt change or infringe on that.

    don't know if anyone ever calculated it. but considering the number of copies of the UCMJ and all the regs it references that are out there that had to be ammended....it wasn't cheap.

    The fact that there are only 2 choices offered as answers to the question does provide us with yet another instance of the all-too-common binary thinking found in many on the right.
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
