So maybe we should all go back to church based weddings and marriage. Regardless how the federal government, state, the church or who ever sees it, I am with the one I love and that is all that matters. The paper is a government thing for benefits and tax exemptions etc. etc. I can make a will whether married or not and leave what I have to whomever, no piece of paper outside that will is needed.
As I stated before, I see no problem with it and it really isn't a hot issue of mine or my families. I would stay home because of my beliefs that the federal government doesn't have the power to say who can or who can't be married. I don't think the states should either. I think love should. But if the vote came up in Georgia, I would vote for it only because the marriage license is issued by the state. That is another sore point with me, I do not think one should have to obtain a license to get married.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
the legal protections, rights and benefits granted by the marriage contract cant be duplicated. many can with many other contracts but none do the same thing nor are they legaly as binding,
no thanks i want government protecting my contract, spouse, kids and family
a will alone cant even come close to doing that
not to mentions churches have nothing to do with legal marriage or the protections needed for family.
on a side note we now have 14 states the grant equal rights to gays!
